Call for Symposia proposals open

15th Göttingen Meeting of the German Neuroscience Society

March 22-25, 2023

The Call for Symposia proposals for the bi-annual meeting of the German Neuroscience Society (NWG) is open. The call is not restricted to our members but we explicitly want to encourage neuroscientists from abroad as well, and especially from the European neuroscience community. Proposals from any field of neurosciences are welcome.

Please be so kind to share our call with the members of the Societé des Neurosciences. The meeting takes place on March 22 – 25, 2023, in the town of Göttingen in the heart of Germany. With around 1.500 participants it is one of the largest neuroscience meetings in Europe besides the FENS Forum. The program offers 36 symposia with four speakers each.

For more information

While the NWG itself cannot offer core funding for foreign participants, we will apply for funds from the German Research Council (DFG) which has always generously supported the meeting in the past. With these funds, we were able to cover at least parts of the travel costs for speakers from outside Germany.

Proposals can be submitted via a webform at the above mentioned website.

Please contact the central office of the NWG if you have any questions.

Deadline for submission of proposals : February 14, 2022 (midnight CET).

The decision on the proposals is made by the Governing Board of the NWG and can be expected by the end of March 2020.
