Deadlines Draw Near: ICOSR in Colorado Springs
Pikes Peak
If you want to hang your posters in the shadow of Pikes Peak in the spring of 2015, it's time to get your submissions in. The International Congress on Schizophrenia Research returns to Colorado Springs March 28 to April 1, 2015. The deadline for submissions for abstracts, symposia, and
workshops is September 22. Also, this is the deadline for Young Investigator Travel Award applications, and we love the YIs, who contribute reports for SRF (see reports from the 2013 meeting), so we want all the slots filled!

Here's the growing list of plenary speakers to look forward to:
  • Elisabeth B. Binder, Max Planck Institute of Psychiatry
  • Kamil Ugurbil, University of Minnesota
  • Matthew W. State, University of California, San Francisco
  • Michael F. Green, University of California, Los Angeles
  • Tyrone D. Cannon, Yale University
