President’s message – July 2019

15 July, 2019 in FENS News

We are now only one year away from our next FENS Forum, which will take place in July 2020 in Glasgow. Stay tuned for upcoming news, including the Forum programme, through the FENS website and social media, and be part of this vibrant neuroscientific community!

With the FENS Regional Meeting in Belgrade just finishing, we are now only one year away from our next FENS Forum, which will take place on 11-15 July 2020 in Glasgow, UK!
The programme for the FENS Forum 2020 is gradually shaping up and I am impressed by the plenary and special lecture speakers who have already been announced. 

We were delighted with the success of the call for Symposia and Technical Workshops: 215 proposals of very high scientific quality were submitted, making the selection a very difficult task. Of them, 56 symposia and 4 workshops have been selected and will be announced shortly. I really hope that those that were not selected this time will join us as well: there are several other ways to participate!

Make sure you stay tuned; a more detailed programme will be announced during the summer. For specific information, please visit the Forum website:
You can engage with us and the host society, the British Neuroscience Association, in social media (search for #FENS2020).   It would be great to count you’re your support in promoting FENS 2020.

Together with my colleagues of the FENS leadership, I am looking forward to celebrating with you all the 12th Forum on 11-15 July 2020 in Glasgow!

Prof. Carmen Sandi
FENS President
