      Conference Topics

      Contributions will be considered for presentation insofar as they deal with topics broadly related to neuroethics, such as the applications and the philosophical, social, medical, psychological, legal, economic, and political consequences of research in neuroscience and cognitive science. Contributions can be experimental, theoretical, analytical, or critical works.

      Submission Guidelines and Attendance

      Participants can only send one contribution as first authors, but they can appear as second authors of other contributions.
      Abstracts must be submitted to convegno@..., in either .doc or .pdf format. Any request of information should also be sent to the same e-mail address.
      Abstracts must be ready for blind review.
      The submission files must contain only the title of the contribution, the abstract and the references. Abstracts should not exceed 300 words, plus 10 references records, which will not be considered in the words count.
      Abstracts can be written either in Italian or in English, according to the language chosen for the paper.

      In the text of the e-mail authors should indicate their personal information:
      - name and family name;
      - affiliation (if any);
      - areas of interest;
      - date of birth;
      - title of the paper;

      The deadline for abstract submission is April 3rd, 2014.
      Notification of acceptance will be given by April 15th, 2014.

      Abstracts will be subject to blind review. The Scientific Committee will be selected from members of the Italian Society for Neuroethics (http://societadineuroetica.it/).

      Details about how to prepare the poster will be sent with the acceptance email. Details, anyway, will not differ radically from those provided for previous editions of the Conference.

      Accepted posters will have 5 minutes for presentation, plus 2 minutes for discussion.

      All authors of selected posters, if attending, will have to subscribe to the Conference. The fee for the author presenting the poster will be 35 Euros.

      A total of 1.000 Euros will be assigned based on the quality of the presented posters.
