Message from the FENS President: extended early registration, abstract submission and travel grant to attend the FENS Forum 2022

23 February 2022


Dear colleagues, dear friends,

On behalf of the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS) and the Société des Neurosciences, I would like to personally invite you, your colleagues and your students to register early, submit abstracts and apply for travel grants to attend the FENS Forum 2022, taking place on 9-13 July in Paris, France, before the extended deadline on 1 March 2022. The FENS Forum 2022 is Europe’s largest international neuroscience meeting and will be the first big in-person global gathering of neuroscientists after a long interruption. The programme covers all aspects of neuroscience, from basic to translational research, and the Forum itself represents a unique opportunity for researchers from around the world to come together and enjoy excellent science in one of Europe’s most vibrant cities. If this is not enough, here are more reasons to attend:

A rich and cutting-edge programme
The FENS Forum 2022 scientific programme will take you to the front line of neuroscience by featuring excellent plenary and special lectures, symposia, live poster sessions, new and exciting session types and engaging satellite and networking events.

Maximum exposure to your research
You will be able to share your research and interact with your fellow delegates from across the globe in person.

Plenty of opportunities to learn and develop your skills
You will be able to participate in stimulating special interest events, including the Brain Debate “Building and understanding brains: How can AI research inform neuroscience?”, lively neuroscience discussions, opportunities for career development and much more.

Europe’s largest international neuroscience meeting
The FENS Forum 2022 will take place at the recently renovated Paris Expo Porte de Versailles, the largest exhibition centre in France. Attendees will find themselves mere steps away from world-famous attractions such as the Champs-Élysées, Arc de Triomphe, Eiffel Tower, and the lively and beautiful historic neighbourhoods.

A reduced environmental impact
FENS is dedicated to minimising the environmental impact of its events and firmly believes that we all have a part to play in preserving our future for generations to come, both locally and across the globe. Therefore, delegates are encouraged to travel by train and offset carbon emissions whenever possible. They can also assist in two worthy development projects in countries with limited resources: the water borehole projects in Eritrea and in Malawi.

FENS Forum 2022 plans to welcome back the neuroscience community with an unparalleled in-person experience.

I look forward to meeting you all there!

Jean-Antoine Girault
FENS President
