9th PANGBORN SENSORY SCIENCE SYMPOSIUM
4 – 8 September 2011
Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel, Canada
On behalf of the Pangborn Organising Committee, the Pangborn Executive Committee and Elsevier we wish to announce that reluctantly, a decision has been made not to hold this year’s Pangborn Symposium in Kyoto, Japan. Unfortunately the situation in Japan continues to be uncertain and we have no way of knowing when the many advisories against travel to Japan will be lifted.
Given the extraordinary and tragic recent events in Japan, we trust that you will appreciate why such a decision has been made. Our motivation for suggesting a move is to ensure that a successful Pangborn meeting can be held in 2011.
A decision has been made to instead hold the meeting at the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel, Canada.
The meeting dates remain unchanged, 4-8th September, 2011.
As a result, the abstract submission deadline has been extended to Friday, 15th April. We continue to invite submissions of abstracts for short oral communications and poster presentations on the topics listed below until this date. Please submit abstracts using the Online Submission Form according to the abstract preparation guidelines.
The Pangborn Executive remains committed to hosting a meeting at an Asian venue at the earliest opportunity. In the meantime, we look forward to receiving your submission and welcoming you to Canada in 2011.
