We are pleased to announce a new Cold Spring Harbor meeting on Behavior & Neurogenetics of Nonhuman Primates, which will begin the evening of Tuesday, November 17, 2015 and end on Thursday evening with a banquet, and departures after breakfast on Friday, November 20th. This conference is designed to bring together a diverse group of researchers, both junior scientists and established investigators, who study the behavior, behavioral genetics, neurogenetics, and/or brain evolution of nonhuman primates.

Keynote Speaker:
Katherine Pollard, UCSF/J. David Gladstone Institutes 

Sessions and Co-Chairs:
Primate models and the genetics of psychiatric illness
John Capitanio, University of California, Davis
Ned Kalin, University of Wisconsin, Madison

Genomic technologies for the NHP nervous system
Xiao-jiang Li, Emory University
Ed Boyden, MIT

Evolution and Phylogenetics
Anne Yoder, Duke University
Louise Barrett, University of Lethbridge, Canada

Gene expression and the primate brain
Nelson Freimer, UCLA

Population Variation and Diversity
Wolfgang Enard,  Ludwig-Maximilians University Munich

Developmental Genetics
James Noonan, Yale University

The format of the meeting will include six oral sessions and one poster session. Each oral session will feature invited talks as well as talks selected from submitted abstracts. For this reason, abstracts from both junior and senior investigators are warmly invited.

Abstracts should contain new and unpublished material. Selection of material for oral and poster presentations will be made by the organizers and individual session chairs. Status (talk/poster) of abstracts will be posted on our website as soon as decisions have been made by the organizers. Please bring this notice to the attention of any of your colleagues who may be interested in participating in the meeting.

We look forward to seeing you at Cold Spring Harbor in November.
