Online submission for symposium proposals opens on March 31, 2020

Call for contributed symposia – MNS 2021

The 8th Mediterranean Neuroscience conference that will be held in Dubrovnik (Croatia, 13-17 June 2021) is now accepting submissions for proposed symposia. A typical symposium gathers 4-5 speakers, each addressing the general topic from a different perspective. Total allocated time is 2 hours per proposed symposium (linked symposia could be proposed, but their joint acceptance is not guaranteed, given our aim to increase thematic diversity). Symposia dealing with all areas of neuroscience research are warmly invited, including, in particular, neuroscience topics which have not been traditionally covered in the past editions.

George Bernard Shaw was enchanted by this beautiful city, about which he said “those who seek paradise on Earth should come to Dubrovnik”, as well as, famously, describing it as “the pearl of the Adriatic“. It really is a stunning city with an amazing Old Town, which became a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1979. Its walls, palaces, streets and roofs tell stories from the rich history of Dubrovnik in which every chance traveller discovers his own story in the stone, sea, Stradun or at Porporela.


Hotel Dubrovnik Palace nestles on the scenic seafront between a pine forest and the turquoise coastal waters of the lush Lapad peninsula, just a few minutes’ drive north west of medieval Dubrovnik Old Town.


The official language of the congress is English. Save the date for 8th Mediterranean Neuroscience Society (MNS) Conference, a multi­disciplinary meeting of neuroscience communities, biomedical and health care professionals.
