Registration

Our 30th Annual Meeting and Satellite Meeting is from April 27 – May 1, 2020 at the Valamar Lacroma Dubrovnik in Dubrovnik, Croatia! Register for the meeting, excursion and accommodation early!

Registration Fees

As in the past several years, regular registration rates have not increased. Furthermore, we have recently introduced a discounted rate for post-doctoral fellows that is $75 below the regular registration rate. Student registration continues to be discounted. NCM understands the financial contraints post doctoral fellows, students and attendees from developing nations may experience and by reducing the cost of membership and registration, we hope to encourage the future leaders of the Society to attend the Annual Meeting. 

NCM is again offering fellowships to increase diversity, to support faculty at Predominantly Undergraduate Institutions and to support families.  We encourage all who qualify to apply.  Click here for more information.

NCM Members receive preferential registration fees for the Annual Meeting.  If you have not already done so, renew your membership to take advantage of the reduced rates. The fee structure (in USD) is outlined below.

All attendees who stay at the host hotel, Valamar Lacroma Dubrovnik or the student hotel, Tirena, will receive a $100 credit on their room account if booked under the NCM block.  Accommodation information can be found by clicking here.

As a representative of your institution the standards and code of conduct of your institution are in effect while at the NCM Annual Meeting, Satellite Meeting and all social events.  As a reminder, while at the NCM Annual Meeting, the code of conduct and professional standards set by your institution are still in effect. 

The Society for the Neural Control of Movement (NCM) encourages open and honest intellectual debate within a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere at the Annual Meeting and through official NCM social media channels.  To help maintain an open and respectful community of scientists, NCM does not tolerate illegal or inappropriate behavior at any annual meeting, including violations of applicable laws of the country in which the meeting is taking place.  NCM condemns inappropriate or suggestive acts or comments that demean or harass another person by reason of gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, physical appearance, ethnicity/race, religion (or lack thereof), or that are generally unwelcome or offensive to other members of the community.  Sexual language and imagery, unless related to specific scientific discussions, is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks, workshops, parties, Twitter and other online media. As the NCM Annual Meeting is attended by a wide spectrum of delegates, please be aware of the power dynamic between PIs, post doctoral fellows and students and how that dynamic may affect interactions amongst delegates.

NCM staff will help participants contact hotel/venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the meeting. We value your attendance.

If you are being harassed or impacted negatively, please contact the NCM staff to discuss your concern.

Breaches of this Code of Conduct can result in disqualification from participating in future meetings and events
