Future Meetings and Workshops

Portal opening guidelines to be considered by those wishing to submit abstracts is that the portal for January meetings will open in early September the previous year (i.e. for January 2023, the portal will open in early September 2022). The portal for the Spring meeting will open in early January and the portal for the Summer meeting will open in early April.

EPS submission portals operate on a first come, first served basis. Therefore, portals typically close when the number of spaces has been filled and can close very quickly. We recommend that prospective presenters be ready before the portal opens for the best chance to submit before places are filled.


EPS Meeting: University of Stirling. 13th – 15th July 2022.

This meeting is scheduled to include the 50th Bartlett Lecture by Melvyn Goodale (with an accompanying symposium organised by Gavin Buckingham and Stephanie Rossit) and the 2022 EPS / BSA Undergraduate Prize talk by Caitlin Naylor.

The submission portals for oral and poster presentations have now closed.

Accommodation

We have secured a limited-number of rooms on hold for the EPS meeting at the Stirling Court Hotel, alongside shared student accommodation with a maximum occupancy of 7 people. These options are on the campus of the University of Stirling.

There is also the option to stay in the city itself, with city centre options of Travelodge and Premier Inn. These hotels are connected to the campus by bus routes taking no more than 30 minutes.

To help with your planning, the times of the meeting for each day are as follows:

Wednesday 13th July       9am until 6pm
Thursday 14th July            9am until 6.15pm
Friday 15th July                  9am until 1.30pm

Research Workshop: Gradient Workshop.

To be held at University of Cambridge, Saturday 18th June 2022

The idea that brain functions are organized in terms of ‘gradients’ – with gradual or systematic changes in function and structure across the cortical surface – has gained ground in recent years. The “principal gradient”, accounting for the greatest variance in whole-brain patterns of intrinsic connectivity, captures the separation in connectivity between primary sensory-motor cortex and heteromodal regions of the default mode network (Margulies et al. PNAS, 2016) and relates to physical distance from primary systems on the cortical mantle, patterns of functional change during cognitive tasks and changes in connectivity seen in neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism. Emerging areas of interest include human-animal gradient comparisons, neurodevelopmental changes and individual differences. This meeting will bring together researchers interested in gradients in neuroanatomy and function for a hybrid face-to-face and online event hosting invited speakers from around the world.

Research Workshop: Celebrating Dorothy: A Festschrift for Dorothy V. M. Bishop.

To be held at The Royal Society, London. Date: 27th & 28th June 2022.

Dorothy Bishop retires in 2022. Plans are underway for a two-day scientific meeting showcasing research inspired by Dorothy’s contributions. We have two major themes: language development and disorder, from neurobiology through to intervention, and reproducibility and open science. Throughout, we’ll hear from keynote speakers and early career researchers, including some of the many people who have benefited from Dorothy’s wisdom and mentorship. We’re planning fun and celebration as we look back over Dorothy’s amazing career along with reflections on where we are now and where our science is going.
