Symposium Location

This year's annual Children's Neuroscience Symposium will be held in Scottsdale, Arizona at The Scottsdale Plaza Resort. With half-day session allowing for plenty of time to explore Phoenix.

Greater Phoenix basks in sunny weather during 85 percent of its daylight hours, with this nearly perfect year-round weather, Phoenix offers visitors an array of impressive attractions making Phoenix a must-visit destination

It's also a great place to enjoy Spring Training baseball games. Tickets are reasonably priced and nothing tastes better than a hot dog with a beverage of your choice in the Phoenix sunshine! 

Or perhaps you would prefer a game of golf under the canopy of near-perpetual blue sky. Located in the heart of Scottsdale, the venue is also close to some of the very best golf courses in the country, including McCormick Ranch Golf Club, The Stadium Course at TPC Scottsdale and Troon North Golf Club.

In addition to golf, the city offers access to numerous outdoor endeavors including hiking, rock climbing, hot-air ballooning, desert jeep tours and more. When it comes to parks and preserves, Phoenix has more acres than any city in the country. Hundreds of miles of trails allow visitors to endlessly explore them. 

Our museums and attractions are not to be missed. For a uniquely Southwestern experience, stroll through the Desert Botanical Garden or visit the Heard Museum for Native American Art and Culture.

If you have children, the Arizona Science Center, the Children’s Museum of Phoenix and the Phoenix Zoo are great fun. Phoenix is one of the best cities to spend time indoors or outdoors. For more information, visit
