Scientific Conferences

Since 1984, the CNLM has hosted an annual scientific conference in the spring to discuss recent advances in the field and launch new collaborations and synergies. The conferences include several themed symposia, short presentations by trainees, panel discussions, and keynote lectures. It is a crucial scientific development opportunity for students and postdocs as well as a faculty. Attendance is by invitation only (except for the triennial international conference – see 2018 below), and the program is developed by a committee of CNLM faculty fellows, including external fellows. The conferences are highly renowned for their intellectual atmosphere, use of the 50/50 discussion rule, and the special edited volumes that result from them. Typical attendance at the annual conference is between 100-120 attendees. Attendance at the 2018 meeting exceeded 1,000 scientists.
