After careful consideration and in light of the global health crisis which prevents us from proceeding with a physical meeting in July 2020 in Glasgow, we are excited to announce that the Forum 2020 will take place as a virtual meeting on the same dates: 11 - 15 July 2020.
This FENS 2020 Virtual Forum will allow delegates to access and participate in all Forum events, including Plenary and Special Lectures, symposia, poster sessions, exhibition, networking and educational events and much more.
We would like to thank our scientific community for their patience. Although we are disappointed about not being able to host a physical meeting this year, we are very enthusiastic about the possibilities offered by this virtual meeting, and to do so together with the British Neuroscience Association (BNA). In the current circumstances, we strongly believe in the value of maintaining and expanding scientific exchange and networking.
We would also like to thank our wonderful sponsors and partners for their continued support. Further, thanks must go to the BNA, the Host Society and Programme Committees of FENS 2020, who continue to work tirelessly towards the creation of a memorable meeting.
All current registrants will automatically be transferred to the FENS 2020 Virtual Forum, with extended ‘on-demand’ access available following the Forum. New delegates can still register through the registration portal. We will naturally offer refunds to those delegates who cannot attend the virtual meeting. Abstract submission will reopen shortly and remain open until 18 May 2020.
We look forward to bringing together our community at the FENS 2020 Virtual Forum to share research, network and to discuss the latest findings in neuroscience. We will communicate further about the details of the new format in the near future. In the meantime, we encourage you to have a look at our Frequently Asked Questions page and we remain at your disposal for any questions you may have.
We wish you and your loved ones well and hope you and your colleagues will be joining us as we take the Forum 2020 virtual!
