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.
The requirement to submit a proposal is active MNS membership for the current year
Online submission for symposium proposals opens on March 31st, 2020.
The MNS strives to strengthen exchanges between Mediterranean neuroscientists, promote education in the neurosciences and increase public awareness of progress made. The participation of scientists from the South countries, whether as organizers of symposia or as speakers, is, therefore, highly encouraged. The gender ratio within each proposal will also be taken into account to reach a decision.
The MNS and its partners will provide a limited number of stipends for qualified young candidates (guidelines to be released soon). However, the symposium proponents are invited to seek funding for travel, accommodation and conference registration of the invited participants (MNS only offers the logistic support at the meeting venue).
