Great point Julio!

Since I was not there I defer 100% to those that were to provide feedback.

Dear FUN Friends,

For my part, I see great value in having our FUN poster session in conjunction with the other trainee poster sessions (many of which are associated with initiatives promoting recruitment, retention, and inclusion/belonging among groups historically underrepresented in the neurosciences). That Saturday evening, the energy I saw among the trainees from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences was inspiring and indeed infectious. I would love to see FUN continue participating in the Saturday night event with these other trainees to give our undergraduate students a feel for what presenting posters at a large meeting is like (over 900 trainees participated that night to the best of my knowledge).  Unfortunately, only a fraction of our undergraduate students would be likely to present on the floor of the meeting otherwise. A smaller more intimate venue can be great FUN, but from my perspective giving them a larger cohort to interact with is even more FUN.

Have a lovely fall as we enter the holiday season!

Julio

Hello all –

Yes, poster boards are SfN Program Committee (PC).
Definitely give feedback and as another point - it would be great to ensure/expect there is always FUN representation on the PC . . .

I was unable to attend but heard mixed reports about having it on the poster floor (more space overall) vs. a dedicated room (perhaps too packed sometimes, but felt like a special event).
If folks have opinions on that they could be shared as well.

Hi

Let SfN know, Greta Ann. The feedback is very helpful, both positive and constructive.

Great to see such a wonderful turnout!

See you all next year,

Julio

Hi Y'all,

Wow, what an amazing SFN that was! I learned so much and it was delightful to connect with many of you.

I'm about to fill out the survey from SFN asking for feedback about the meeting. There was a double scheduling issue of the Theme J poster boards between the Sunday morning Theme J presentations and the Saturday night FUN poster session. Before I fill out the survey, who would be the most appropriate person to address suggestions to? Is that an SFN responsibility? A FUN responsibility?

Thanks in advance for your insight.

Greta Ann
