Deadline extension for a further week.

Hi all,

It appears some who registered for the symposium missed out on submitting an abstract and vice versa so to give everyone an equal chance to be considered for talk/poster we have extended the deadline till 5pm this Friday (26th). So make sure you pass this on to anyone you think may have missed out.

Remember, in addition to submitting your abstract by downloading the abstract submission form (see post below this one), you also need to register your attendance at the event by going here and filling out your details.

Remember we have two excellent plenary speakers, loads of great student talks, plenty of posters, prizes galore and coffee, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and post-event drinks all provided for FREE!

We look forward to seeing you all there!

Thank You!

Thank you all so much for making the 2014 Professional Development dinner a huge success. We managed to sell the event out! We had 120 students from over 15 universities and institutes Melbourne wide along side 30 VIPs from industry, academia and media. The keynote speeches from Adam Bandt and Sen Penny Wright were interesting and covered a wide range of topics from how government is failing science through to evidence based policy and generated a discussion amongst all attending.

Now we must look forward to next amazing SOBR event! The 2014 Student Symposium! This year the symposium will be held at the Florey Institute for Neuroscience and Mental Health on the 15th of October. There will be both student posters and student presentations and abstract submissions will be opening in the coming weeks so keep an eye out and start getting your abstract ready!

In the mean time, here are a few photos from the professional development dinner:
