Call for Data Blitz Submissions

If you would like to give a data blitz presentation, please fill out this form. Data Blitz presentations are limited to 5 minutes and one slide with a single main take-away point. Slides should have no animations that change the size of elements, occlude elements, etc. (i.e., you may slowly uncover bits, but that is all). Trainees and early career researchers are especially encouraged to take part in the data blitz, but feel free to submit a presentation if you are an established researcher and have one cool finding you’d like to share and receive feedback on.

About the Conference

The Park City Winter Conference on the Neurobiology of Learning and Memory was founded in 1977 to provide researchers a forum for open, critical discussions of current theories and findings in the field of learning and memory, with approaches ranging from cellular and molecular through human behavior. A defining feature of the conference is the 50/50 rule. All too often at conferences sessions are almost entirely consumed by talks with only a few brief questions possible. Here, half of every session is dedicated to questions and discussion. This, coupled with the small format has led to the conference’s reputation of being the site where we, as a field, critically assess not only what we truly know, but what we need to do to move forward.
