Tenth International Congress of Neuroethology
Please carefully read all of the following information about registration for ICN2012 and for submitting your abstract before registering or submitting an abstract.
Meeting Registration & Abstract Submission
- You have two choices for Accommodations. These are explained on the Accommodations page.
- You can stay at a nearby hotel.
- If you wish to stay in less expensive residence halls on the University of Maryland campus (all air conditioned), you select these on the meeting Registration page. You can learn more about the residence halls here.
- If you haven't decided yet, you do not need to select a residence hall now. Just retain your meeting registration number and you can come back to the registration page later to select a dormitory. But, keep in mind that dormitory space is limited so select this early if interested.
- The banquet cruise for ICN will be very special. It includes dinner, dancing, and entertainment on an evening cruise in a glass-enclosed boat on the Potomac River. This boat is designed to travel under the low bridges over the Potomac and provide views of the monuments and buildings of Washington that are unparalleled. You will see the sights of Washington in early evening and at night. Indeed, the cruise is a spectacular way to see many of the sights of the U.S. Capital from a unique perspective. You can learn more about this cruise here.
- The banquet cruise will take place Thursday evening of the meeting. Participants will have the afternoon off to explore Washington DC and its many sights, and then take local transportation to the cruise departure point (information will be provided to all who sign up for the cruise). Following the cruise, buses will be provided to bring you back to the UM campus and hotels.
- The cost of the banquet cruise is $96/per person including return bus. Accompanying persons are most welcome, and the cost is the same.
- Odyssey Dinner Cruise Dress Code: "For women, cocktail wear, a dress or dressy-casual attire is appropriate. For men, collared shirts and dress pants are recommended. Nice, designer jeans are acceptable. However, casual jeans, t-shirts, athletic shoes or flip flops are discouraged."
- We encourage you to bring families to the meeting and to consider arriving early or staying late to enjoy the wonderful sights of Washington D.C. and neighboring areas. See the Location page for an idea of all of the interesting things to do in our area.
Conference Dress Code
- The DC area is hot, so participants are welcome and encouraged to wear light clothing. Casual clothing, shorts, and open shoes are acceptable in all sessions. Be advised though that all lecture halls are air-conditioned and can feel very cool compared to the outside. So we recommend dressing in layers or bringing cardigans.
