We are happy to make the second announcement for the ICON XIII conference,
which will take place on 5-8 August 2017 in Amsterdam (the Netherlands).
Amsterdam is an easily-accessible and progressive city. ICON will take
place at the Beurs van Berlage, located in downtown Amsterdam and one of
the most beautiful conference venues in Europe!

ICON stands for International Conference for Cognitive Neuroscience. ICON
has taken place every 2-3 years since 1980. This conference brings together
researchers from diverse backgrounds, joined by their interest in studying
the relationships amongst brain, mind, and behavior. ICON conferences are
always a big success, and 2017 in Amsterdam will follow this same tradition!

Symposia and poster submissions will be open from early 2017, with
deadlines of 1 February for symposia and 31 March for posters. Plan your
research accordingly!

In addition to standard-format symposia, ICON2017 will feature two novel
formats (see "What" and "Submit" links on icon2017.org for more details):
1) "Hackathons" are computer-based sessions that can involve either a group
of people working towards solving a problem, or can be more tutorial-like
with the goal of teaching hands-on skills (e.g., using a toolbox or
implementing an analysis in Matlab) that can be accomplished in ~2 hours
(for longer workshops, consider organizing a satellite).
2) "Ask-the-experts" is a panel of experts in a topic. No specific lectures
are prepared; instead there is an open Q&A/discussion session. The focus
can be on a theoretical issue, methodological issue, or hotly-debated topic
in cognitive neuroscience.

We welcome pre-conference satellites, and will be happy to advertise them
on the ICON website. Note that satellites are independent from ICON in
terms of organization, registration, and costs.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss ideas for your
satellite, please contact Mike Cohen (mikexcohen at gmail.com) and Birte
Forstmann (buforstmann at gmail.com).

For up-to-date announcements before and during the ICON meeting, follow
@icon2017 (see also "Media" tab on the website).


We look forward to seeing you in beautiful Amsterdam!
