Showcase Symposium 2022

2022 Showcase Symposium

Neuroscience Showcase Symposium is in-person and virtual this December 13 – 14, 2022!

Showcase is a time to highlight the dimensionality of all the teams that drive our Open and Big Science mission. We want to showcase the work of teams that do not fit in the traditional mold of papers and seminars, along with the exciting research that is developing. Therefore, Neuroscience Showcase attendees will be Allen Institute internal staff and NGLs only. This is our dedicated time to celebrate our work and connect with others who are not part of your direct team.

This is an internal event only. Registration is free and required for those who want to attend Showcase events.

This year, Showcase will have the classics:

There will also be new elements such as Affinity Group & SciComm sponsored Roundtable topics, Scientist Spotlight, Poster Bingo, and more. 

Please contact Events@alleninstitute.org with any questions. 

December 13 - 14, 2022

Registration

Please register below by November 28, 2022. If you would like to take part in lunch, happy hour, and a chance to win prizes, you must be registered and attend in person. If you cannot attend person, you can still register to receive a Zoom link for talks.

Posters

Posters are a time to share what you and your team are working on with your fellow scientists. Submissions will be accepted now until registration closes on November 28. In your submission, please include author names, a 1-3 sentence summary of the poster, and if you want to participate in the Lightning Talks.

The Showcase Committee invites poster submissions from the following Scientific Units:
- Brain Science
- MindScope
- Neural Dynamics
- Scientific Operations
- + NGLs

Anyone from RA to Scientist to Support Staff to PM and Investigator are encouraged to submit posters on a wide range of topics. Topics can include pipeline improvements, SOP modifications, and even upcoming data releases. You are welcome to reuse a poster from SfN or another recent conference.
