The Symposium for Cognitive Auditory Neuroscience (SCAN) was planned for 2020 as a forum in which to develop intellectual community among those interested in human auditory cognitive neuroscience in a lively gathering in Pittsburgh, PA. Of course, 2020 had other things planned.
With uncertainty persisting into 2021 we are hoping that you will join us in the Symposium for Cognitive Auditory Neuroscience ‘Un-Conference’ to take place over the course of 2021.
With an eye toward Zoom fatigue, we are planning four themed special sessions (April 16, May 21, September 24, October 29).
Each will take place from 11am-2pm EST on a Friday to accommodate a wide variety of time zones and will involve three invited talks followed by an online gathering to encourage interaction. We will have ‘unconference’ provocateurs to make the event as interactive as possible in the virtual world.
A major goal of SCAN is to offer trainees the prospect of interacting with leaders in the field. To accomplish this at a distance, there will be four SCAN Early Career Roundtables, scheduled a week after each mini-symposium. This will allow a group of early career researchers selected from an application process have a chance to interact with the speakers in a more intimate online setting.
