DEADLINE APRIL 15, 2016
From Curtiss Hoffman, Student Research Awards Chair
We are pleased to announce that the anonymous donor who generously provided funding for the Student Research Award last year has graciously agreed to provide matching funds for the 2016 competition! The IASD Board of Trustees will provide the balance of funds.
As in previous years, there will be two $500 awards. The first is for the best student submission of original scientific research on dreams and dreaming. The second is for the best submission of original historical, literary, artistic, or theoretical research. Undergraduate and graduate students are eligible to submit papers. Please view this page for additional details.
All participants must submit their presentations in electronic form, preferably through email to firstname.lastname@example.org or if necessary by snail-mailing the files, copied to a CD or a DVD, to the IASD office by April 1 or emailing materials by April 15, 2016.
Mark on any mailed box "OK to leave on porch."
Participants may also electronically submit videos in AVI formats, or music in MIDI or MPS formats. In the case of papers with multiple authors – in terms of the ideas presented as well as the description of the results – the contestant must indicate clearly, in either the text of the paper or in an accompanying letter, what portions are the submitter’s work. Research which has been published prior to the submissions deadline is not eligible for this award.
Submissions must include a copy of the participant’s student ID. Alternatively, a copy can be faxed to the IASD Office at 1-209-724-0889, or scanned and emailed as an attachment to email@example.com A note or cover letter should be included to indicate that this is for the IASD Student Research Award. Participants must specify which of the two awards they are applying for.
Winners will be announced at the IASD annual conference, which will be held at the beautiful Rolduc Abbey in Kerkrade, The Netherlands, from June 24 – 28, 2016, during the General Membership Meeting. Check the schedule of conference events to find out the exact date and time.
IASD MEMBER GIVES PRESENTATION ON NEUROLOGY OF DREAMING
IASD member Susanne van Doorn recently gave a
presentation about dreaming together with neurologist Ysbrand van der
Werf. The subject of the presentation was the balance that seems to be
lost in current society. Everything has to be measurable, rational. The
world needs the magic of dreams. In an audience filled with interested
people lots of questions were asked about the neurology of dreaming and
the meaning of dreams.
In this issue of Hot Off the Press we will spring forward by focusing on
dreams of the gifted. The intention of this column is to publish links
to evidence-based scientific articles on the study of dreams that are
written for a non-research audience.

Dreaming is something human beings do around the world, but how we think about our dreams – how we talk about them, trust them, and find meaning in them – is nested within culture. Culture is as close as our hearts and as wide as an entire civilization. Dreaming Hearts, Dreaming Cultures explores dreams and dreaming through three distinct cultural lenses: Egyptian/Islamic, Western/Judeo-Christian, and Tibetan/Buddhist, alongside a time to connect with our individual dreaming heritage and traditions.
