CRCNS 2014

October 16-18, 2014

Tempe, Arizona

Hosted by Arizona State University

Local Organizers: Brian Smith and Sharon Crook

Plan to attend and enjoy Arizona's beautiful October weather. All current CRCNS awardees are expected to attend using budgeted funds. Students and postdocs also are encouraged to attend, though presentations are to be given by PIs or co-PIs. As in previous years, the meeting will enable PIs to report on progress to their peers and program officers at NSF, NIH, ANR and BMBF, and facilitate continued collaborative funding and coordination.

We anticipate having funds to cover all registration fees for a large number students and postdoctoral researchers in support of their attendance at the CRCNS Workshops and Main Meeting. More information is available on the registration page.
