Cost of Attending meetings
Sending trainees to meetings can become quickly very expensive, which is a pity, given how important it is for their scientific and professional development. Registration costs are often quite an obstacle for labs that do now swim in money. Meeting locations in expensive or far away cities add to that problem We were curious about this and looked at some numbers of great meetings in the field.
Neuromodec 2017: Regular $600, students: $300. Location: NY City.
Brain Stimulation 2019: Regular: $630, students $335. Location: Vancouver
These are great meetings that I recommend. However, we felt that there is a gap in the "conference menu", which is an affordable (shorter) meeting in a cheaper location (with still the best speakers!). Our meeting is thus designed as an addition and not a competition with these other meetings. We look forward to welcoming you to Chapel Hill on May 21-23. Just because you asked, here are our rates:
Carolina Neurostimulation Conference: Regular $ 165, students $95.

Original contributions addressing theory, research, practice, and training/education issues, in any areas of neuromodulation and brain network dynamics are welcome. The deadline for abstract submission is March 15th 2018. Authors will be notified of acceptance in the first week of April. Please follow the guidelines for the submission of your abstract.
Travel Awards for Trainees:
We have funds allocated for trainee travel awards. All trainees (undergraduate students, graduate students, post docs, research associates) who will be presenting posters at the conference are eligible for travel awards. To apply for a travel award please complete the form in this link and email us at firstname.lastname@example.org along with your CV. Please note that you must attend the conference and present your poster to receive the travel award. The deadline for Travel Awards is March 15th 2018
Transcranial Electrical Stimulation Workshop:
Trainees and conference attendees are encouraged to attend the preliminary neurostimulation workshop on May 21st, 2018. This one-day innovative hands-on transcranial electrical stimulation (TES) workshop will be taught by Dr. Flavio Frohlich. The workshop will focus on transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS) and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) with an exciting overview of theory, research, and methods. Click here for registration information.
When completing registration, please be sure to provide feedback regarding your current knowledge of TES as well as some questions or techniques you are interested in. We want this course to be as interactive as possible. Lunch and beverages will be provided.
About the Carolina Center for Neurostimulation:
The Carolina Center for Neurostimulation is part of the Department of Psychiatry at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and is directed by Dr. Flavio Frohlich. Established in 2017, the Center seeks to revolutionize psychiatry and neurology by studying the dynamics of brain, body, and behavior, investigating the response to stimulation, and translating discoveries into clinical treatments.
