We are happy to announce the 2010 South East Nerve Net (SENN) and Georgia/South Carolina Neuroscience Consortium (GASCNC) conferences, which will be held jointly at Emory University in Atlanta, GA, starting the evening of Friday, March 5th, 2010, and ending around noon on Sunday, March 7th.

This combined meeting will showcase neuroscience research in the Southeastern US and provide an opportunity for junior researchers, students and postdocs, to present their work in a friendly and collaborative setting.

The organizers of this year's meeting have strived to achieve a balance between scientific and social interaction throughout the weekend. Several informal gatherings will take place during the weekend to stimulate scientific discussion. Also, posters can be displayed on Friday night and remain in place until the close of the meeting on Sunday noon to aid in the exchange of ideas.
