4th Forum of European Neuroscience
|Event Date/Time: Jan 06, 2004|
The Lisbon Forum will be the fourth in a biennial series started in Berlin in 1998, followed by Brighton in 2000 and Paris in 2002. The participation, already very important in Berlin with over 4000 attendees, had continued to grow to reach levels of 5000 in Paris. The challenge launched by FENS in 1998 was to make the Forum of European Neuroscience "the place to go" every two years; to present one's best and most recent data; to attend outstanding lectures and symposia presenting state-of-the-art research in neuroscience, and to meet and discuss with colleagues sharing similar interests, which is becoming a reality for the young as well as for the more established neuroscientists. We are confident that Lisbon will represent another step forward in a series of successful Forums.
The Programme Committee has set up an outstanding programme with 9 plenary and 9 special lectures, 52 symposia selected among proposals made by individual neuroscientists in response to a call for symposium proposals, and 7 technical workshops. In addition, at least 2 satellite meetings will occur just before the Forum.
