We are pleased to announce the 2019 Annual Meeting will take place in Toyama Japan, surrounded by the 3,000 meter high Tateyama Mountain Range on one side and the beautiful Toyama Bay on the other.  The Annual Meeting will take place April 24 – 27, 2019 at the Toyama International Conference Center and is preceded by a Satellite Meeting on Tuesday April 23, 2019.

Meeting Information


Please plan to attend the 29th Annual Meeting from April 23 -27, 2019 in the majestic and spectacular city of Toyama, Japan.  The 2019 meeting will begin with the Satellite Meeting on Tuesday April 23, 2019 and a Welcome Reception Tuesday evening.  Both meetings will be held at the Toyama International Conference Center.


With the Northern Alps, including the 3,000-meter Tateyama Mountain Range and the bountiful Toyama Bay, Toyama Prefecture is surrounded by nature and offers a wide variety of sights and local cuisine to enjoy.  There is an abundance of must-see sights, such as world-famous Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route and the remote mountain village of gassho-style houses in the World Heritage Site of Gokayama.  With historic temples, old city streets and modern museums, there is something for everyone in Toyama.

See you in Toyama!

Satellite Meetings

NCM’s Board welcomes suggestions for one or two day Satellite Meetings in conjunction with future Annual Meetings.  Please discuss your ideas with NCM Board Members to formulate an early plan/proposal, and bring this to the NCM President for further consideration. Though we already have a satellite chosen for 2019, please feel free to suggest one for next year.

Keynote Speakers

NCM provides the opportunity for members to suggest prominent colleagues in the field of neuroscience who would be suitable candidates to provide a Keynote Address during an Annual Meeting.  The Keynote is an invited lecture delivered by a prominent colleague whose contributions to neuroscience are widely acknowledged.  Individuals and topics outside the normal NCM community are encouraged.

Please note the 2019 keynote has already been chosen but we will still accept suggestions for future years.  Join us in Toyama, Japan to hear our Distinguished Contribution Award winner, John Kalaska, University of Montreal!
