41st Annual Meeting of Japan Neuroscience Society (Neuroscience 2018)-Call for Travel Award Application

The 41st Annual Meeting of Japan Neuroscience Society (Neuroscience 2018) will be held at Kobe Convention Center in Hyogo, Japan, from July 26th to 29th, 2018.

Neuroscience 2018 offers Travel Awards to enthusiastic leading non-Japanese neuroscientists traveling from abroad to present high quality papers at the meeting. Applications of young principal investigators and senior postdoctoral fellows are especially encouraged. The funding for travel will be between 40,000-150,000 JPY per award depending on the travel distance. The awardees will also be exempt from the registration fee of the meeting. Those from Asian-Pacific countries are particularly encouraged.

Please be advised that persons from the following countries must apply for the Travel Award through their home Neuroscience Affiliations: China, South Korea, India, and Iran.

– The Japan Neuroscience Society (JNS) was founded in 1974. Since then, the membership has increased steadily. With more than 6,300 members in 2017, JNS is now a representative academic society in neuroscience in Japan.

– Neuroscience 2018 under the theme of “New Horizon of Neuroscience” provides a unique opportunity to forge closer links between researchers in different fields and to develop next-generation neuroscientists endowed with a wide perspective.

– Top international and domestic researchers will take this as an opportunity to elucidate the mechanisms of the brain and mind through promotion of a wide range of neuroscience research fields, across clinical medicine and psychology, and to the molecular and cellular biological levels.

– We will also focus our efforts on promoting interaction with relevant professional neuroscience societies in neighboring Asia-Pacific countries, the United States and Europe by organizing joint symposia and providing a financial assistance program to cover travel costs.

– All travel award winners are invited to the International Exchange Meeting for Young Researchers and a get-together party to be held on July 25th, 2018 to facilitate interaction among young researchers from abroad and Japan. In addition, they will be invited to a reception on DAY 2 of the Annual Meeting.

– The Annual Meeting aims at fostering young scientists and promoting collaboration across the globe and various scientific fields including clinical neuroscience. We expect approximately 4,000 participants, including 400 people from overseas.

– The Meeting will be held at Kobe Convention Center, Hyogo.


Application deadline: January 9th, 2018.

Le Congrès du Sommeil

Avec le parrainage de la Société des Neurosciences

La Société Française de Recherche et Médecine du Sommeil et la Société de Pneumologie de Langue Française (Groupe Sommeil) organisent chaque année Le Congrès du Sommeil®.

Ce Congrès accueille et rassemble des experts d’horizons disciplinaires variés pour débattre et échanger sur les innovations en matière de recherche sur le sommeil normal et pathologique, de diagnostic, de prise en charge et de thérapeutiques. Le contenu du programme scientifique, pluridisciplinaire, fait une part importante aux troubles respiratoires du sommeil mais consacre des sessions aux aspects neurologiques, psychiatriques et chronobiologiques du sommeil.

Cette année, 3 symposia de Recherche Fondamentale :

– Modulations des instabilités respiratoires au cours du sommeil.

– Vieillissement, maladies neurodégénératives, et sommeil : le cercle vicieux ?

– Oscillations : sommeil versus éveil.

Le Congrès du Sommeil®, c’est :

– Un programme scientifique complet (conférences, symposia, des ateliers, une conférence de consensus, une journée de 7 formations pré-congrès, etc.).

– Plus de 2700 participants (Techniciens du sommeil, Cliniciens, Chercheurs, Médecins, etc.).

– Un espace d’exposition et des partenaires fidèles !

– Un village du sommeil institutionnel et associatif.

Nouveauté 2018 : la création d’un Village des Start-up !

The largest event of its kind throughout Europe in 2019, the British Neuroscience Association – in partnership with Neuroscience Ireland (NI) and the British Society for Neuroendocrinology (BSN) – is excited to be bringing the international Festival of Neuroscience to Dublin, a city of culture, excitement and neuroscience!

In April 2019, at the Convention Centre Dublin (CCD), the British Neuroscience Association will host its fourth Festival of Neuroscience.

The first Festival (BNA2013, London) set the template for a completely novel forum, where other organisations with an interest in brain research were invited to join the BNA to create a cross-disciplinary and celebratory neuroscience event, bringing together fundamental research with clinical expertise and public engagement as well. Subsequent Festivals (BNA2015 in Edinburgh; BNA2017 in Birmingham) confirmed the success and popularity of this innovation; each one has attracted 1150-1500 delegates, a remarkable thirty partner organisations have taken part to date, and each has created a genuinely diverse and stimulating mix of neuroscientific interests.

In 2019 the festival will be held in the Republic of Ireland.
The French Neuroscience Society will be associated to this event and present a joint symposium entitled « Brain network development ».

On behalf of the ISCBFM President and the Local Organizing Committee, we invite the members of the French Neuroscience Society to join us at YOKOHAMA BRAIN & BRAIN PET 2019, the 29th International Symposium on Cerebral Blood Flow, Metabolism and Function and the 14th International Conference on Quantification of Brain Function with PET to be held in Yokohama, Japan from July 4th – 7th 2019. Following the tradition of previous meetings, BRAIN & BRAIN PET 2019 will cover numerous aspects within the area of neuroscience research, particularly those related to brain function and metabolism, cerebral blood flow, the function of the neurovascular unit and the blood-brain barrier, brain imaging, brain repair, and cerebrovascular pathology.

Our goal is to present the state-of-the art and novel discoveries that will increase our understanding of brain function under physiological and pathological conditions through basic, translational, and clinical investigation. Leading scientist in these fields, members of the International Society for Cerebral Blood Flow and Metabolism (ISCBFM, http://iscbfm.org) and other exceptional scientists will participate as in our previous biannual meetings. The program committee is actively working to create an engaging scientific program that will be of interest to scientists working in all fields of neuroscience, from basic to clinical and applied research.

Yokohama, the second largest city in Japan, is located next to Tokyo along the coastline of the Pacific Ocean. The city has long prospered as an international port city trading with foreign countries that opened to the world in 1859, as it had favorable facilities to host ships from abroad. Since that time, Yokohama has been vigorously acquiring new cultures and information from other countries, and it developed a reputation as the source for new information from abroad that was disseminated around Japan, hence its nickname as the birthplace of Japan’s modern culture.
