British Association of Cognitive Neuroscience
Joint Annual Meeting with the Wales Institute for Cognitive Neuroscience (WICN)
1st-5th September 2008, Swansea University


Torsten BaldewegDear colleagues and friends, this year, on behalf of the Association, I would like to invite you to our Annual Conference in Swansea. This will be our first meeting in Wales and you are assured to be in for a great treat!

I am pleased to say that we expect yet another excellent scientific programme. Topics range from 'auditory basis of language disorders' with a keynote from Prof Sophie Scott (UCL), to 'Memory research' featuring a lecture by Dr Ed Wilding (Cardiff). Of special interest will be a symposium and workshop on 'New Developments in EEG Source Localisation', with representatives from major developers demonstrating their latest software.

GowerWe would like to think that we provide a valuable scientific forum on a small scale - intentionally in contradistinction to the mega-conferences around the world. We are not a 'members only' club, quite the contrary; we welcome national and international visitors and especially new members. We particularly encourage scientists at the beginning of their careers to come and present their research in a friendly and supportive atmosphere. This year we will provide an even larger number of student bursaries: six in total, which will include £150 and free conference registration. You can read the reports from last years' winners describing their experiences in Dundee in this newsletter.

For those of you who are keen to extend their summer holiday, the conference is located right next to the beach of Swansea Bay - feel free to bring your surf boards!

Look forward to seeing you there,

Torsten Baldeweg,
Chairman BACN


PS: If you are a keen walker - come and join us a few days before the conference on a walk along the beautiful south Pembrokeshire coastal path. Contact me on (T.Baldeweg@ich.ucl.ac.uk) and I will send you more details of the planned trip.
