AKN annual meeting 2015 - first announcement

Dear friends and colleagues,

On behalf of the Association of Korean Neuroscientists (AKN), it is our
great pleasure to announce the 2015 AKN meeting and the 2015 AKN Awards,
as below.

Please join us and enjoy the friendship of fellow Korean
Neuroscientists. Pre-registration will be required (there are limited
seats) and the details of the meeting’s format will be announced in
the next announcement.

AKN Meeting:

AKN Awards:

As in previous years, we will select and present AKN Outstanding Research
Awards in 4 different categories: Postdoctoral abroad, Postdoctoral
in Korea, Pre-doctoral abroad, and Pre-doctoral in Korea. The number
of awards may vary, depending on several factors such as the number of
qualified applicants. Each award recipient will get $400 prize.

Award recipients will be determined by 1) the quality of their abstract,
and 2) their overall research accomplishments. An award recipient must
be present at the award ceremony to be eligible (if absent, the award
prize cannot be given).

There is a special category for the Junior Faculty Award. One or two
winners will be selected from junior members (≤5 yrs of faculty
appointment) at the rank of Assistant Professor or equivalent at an
institution in North America. The winner will be invited to present their
work at the meeting and will get $1,000 prize. A full CV should be sent to

Dr. Daewoo Lee (Leed1@ohio.edu).

Deadline: October 2, 2015 (Friday)

What to send: a full CV (including complete publication record),
an abstract for SfN poster/oral presentation, and related information
(presentation time & board number). Faculty Award candidates do not
need presentation.

Format of material: one PDF file.

Disqualifications: 1) previous winners of the same category; 2)
over qualification (over 5 years in the current position, appointment
to a higher position, etc.); and 3) non-presenting author of the poster
(for students/postdocs).

Application (e-mail attachments) should be sent to :

Dr. Utaek Oh at SNU (utoh@snu.ac.kr), if you are from an institute
located in Korea.

Dr. Daewoo Lee at Ohio University (Leed1@ohio.edu), if you are from an
