All graduate students and postdocs are eligible to apply. Funded by the National Institutes of Health, the SNL Travel Awards are aimed at encouraging and fostering the participation of junior scientists who are members of underrepresented groups.

Amsterdam is a city rich in history and culture, and combines a 17th century historical atmosphere with the sophistication of a modern metropolis.

Letter from the President
Dear Members and Friends of the Society for the Neurobiology of Language,
The 2014 Annual Meeting of our Society will take place in Amsterdam (the Netherlands) at the end of August. It promises to be an exciting meeting in a vibrant city. Our meeting venue is an historic building in the heart of Amsterdam, only a 5 minute walk from the main railway station with direct connections to the airport. We are looking forward to your submissions, both for posters and for the symposium. This is the first time that we will have a symposium in our program. Soon we will be able to reveal the topic and the participants in this year’s discussion panel. I am very proud of the excellent list of keynote speakers, all central figures in their fields of research and great speakers. But, the bread and butter of our meeting will be your presentations. I hope you will submit your exciting new findings to the program of our meeting. I am looking forward to welcoming you in Amsterdam later this year.
