James S. McDonnell Foundation 21st Century Science Initiative
2005 Program Meeting
Matters of Consequence
June 6-8, IBM Palisades Conference Center



The annual program meeting provides a venue for researchers from the three funding areas -- Brain Cancer, Complex Systems, and Bridging Brain, Mind, and Behavior -- to explore topics of common interest and to learn about one another’s projects. The invited talks, organized into four topical sessions, serve to introduce themes and provide examples of how questions and approaches in different areas of research can overlap with and even inform one another. The poster session provides a further opportunity for the meeting participants to learn about and discuss one another’s work. All participants are invited to bring a poster. A preliminary meeting agenda is provided on our web site. Please note: the order of session topics and the order of speakers within each session is subject to change. We will post updated notices on the web site so please check there if you need additional information.

The overall theme for the 2005 meeting is Matters of Consequence. Speakers in the meeting's four sessions will explore how aspects of scientific research such as levels of inquiry, context, collaboration, and feedback matter – both in the specific systems individuals study and across disciplinary boundaries. We hope you will join us in exploring how these particular concepts, and others, have important consequences for work done in all three of JSMF’s program areas.

Meals, receptions, and unscheduled free time are important components of JSMF-sponsored meetings and provide opportunities for continued scientific exchange. Whenever possible, we encourage you to arrange your travel so you can participate in the entire meeting.
