Symposium Location

The 2015 Annual Children's Neuroscience Symposium will be held in Phoenix, Arizona at the Ritz Carlton hotel.

 Greater Phoenix basks in sunny weather during 85 percent of its daylight hours, making it the sunniest metropolis in the United States  and 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.  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, call the Greater Phoenix Chamber of  Commerce at (602) 495-2195 or go online to
