International Neuroethics Society Contests

The International Neuroethics Society (INS) is sponsoring two opportunities to be published and to win travel stipends to attend the annual INS meeting (November 13 and 14 in DC), among other prizes.

The INS welcomes abstracts reporting recent results in the field of neuroethics and related topics. Investigators at any career stage are encouraged to submit abstracts by the May 15 deadline. Selections will be made based on content, available space, and overall program balance. Participants may submit the same abstract for the INS meeting as for the Society for Neuroscience Meeting. Five submissions will be selected for oral presentations at the annual meeting, 25 will be published by the American Journal of Bioethics Neuroscience, and eight cash travel stipends will be awarded.

The INS has also announced a call for submissions for a new student prize in neuroethics. All current postsecondary students (undergraduate, graduate, or professional) in any discipline are eligible and invited to submit a single-author essay on any topic in neuroethics (e.g. ethical, legal, policy, and social implications of neuroscience) by the May 20 deadline. The top two winners will receive a one-year student membership to INS, a travel stipend to attend the annual meeting, and opportunities to be published.

The Dana Foundation is a supporter of the INS and has been since its inception. For more neuroethics news and events, visit the Dana Foundation’s Neuroethics page.
