Calls for Proposals and Abstracts

The International Neuroethics Society (INS) invites students, researchers, and professionals from around the world to submit session proposals and abstracts for research presentations (in the form of posters and talks) for Neuroethics 2024, scheduled on April 17-19, 2024. The meeting includes opportunities to participate virtually or in person in Baltimore, MD, USA.

New this year: we are seeking session proposals. Proposals are expected to feature a fully-realized topical focus, format, and include a list of speakers who can present a diverse range of perspectives and viewpoints. Proposals may feature any topic or issue related to neuroethics. We especially encourage proposals related to the meeting’s theme — 'Expressing Wonder, Making Meaning: Neuroethics Engages the Arts'.

Abstracts submitted for research presentations can be considered for a poster presentation, a research talk, or both. Presentations can be given in-person or virtual (live or recorded). Authors can identify the presentation types and formats for which they wish to be considered. Abstract submissions may feature any topic or issue related to neuroethics.

Don't miss this opportunity to share your creative ideas and neuroethics research with colleagues from around the world. Incomplete or late submissions will not be accepted.

The submission deadline is September 1, 2023 at 11:30pm EDT. The deadline was extended from August 20. The deadline will not be extended again.

About the Meeting

The INS Annual Meeting is a scientific conference that provides an opportunity for neuroethics experts, health and law professionals, and students and trainees from around the world and from many disciplines to share and exchange knowledge and to forge essential connections.

The theme for this meeting is: ‘Expressing Wonder, Making Meaning: Neuroethics Engages the Arts’. A number of sessions and activities will be organized around this topic to explore the possible interactions — such as the creative, practical, theoretical, technological or social — between the arts and neuroscience. The program will also include a broad range of other topics and issues, inspired by the session proposals and research abstracts submitted by members of the neuroethics research community.

The International Neuroethics Society is a professional association of scientists, scholars, students, and practicing legal and health professionals who share an interest in the ethical, legal, and societal impacts of advances in brain science. Join the Society to interact, learn, and participate in critical neuroethics discussions that further this growing field. Members receive discounted registration rates for this meeting as well as other exclusive benefits.

Diversity and Inclusion

The INS is committed to equity, fairness, and to fostering an inclusive and diverse professional community characterized by a healthy culture with transparent practices and in accordance with the Code of Conduct.

The Society welcomes submissions from people of all identities, backgrounds and experiences. As part of the submission form, authors are asked to provide select demographic information and have the opportunity to share details about personal and professional experience. See the components section of the research presentations for additional information.


To help reduce the cost of registration and cover some travel-related expenses, we also offer a limited number of stipends to authors with accepted abstracts.
