Dear colleagues, dear friends,

We are thrilled and deeply honoured to host the FENS Forum 2022 on 9-13 July 2022 in Paris, France.

This Forum represents a unique opportunity for neuroscientists from around the world to gather together and enjoy excellent science in one of Europe’s most vibrant cities. FENS 2022 will be the largest neuroscience event ever organised in France, and we hope that you will join us in creating an inspiring, diverse scientific programme to be showcased in the City of Lights.

Organised by FENS in partnership with the Société des Neurosciences, the event will feature high-quality science from every domain of modern brain research. Over the course of five days, attendees will have unprecedented access to a range of symposia, technical workshops, plenary lectures and poster sessions. There will be multiple occasions throughout the meeting to shape the programme and share your research with your peers. Also on the agenda are a number of social events and networking opportunities to get to know your colleagues in a more casual setting.

Neuroscience research will be celebrated in Paris all year long, and the meeting itself will take place at the recently renovated Paris Expo Porte de Versailles, one of the largest exhibition centres in France. Attendees will find themselves mere steps away from world-famous attractions such as the Champs-Élysées, Arc de Triomphe and the lively and beautiful historic centre.

While the 2020 Forum was held virtually as a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic, we hope that the 2022 meeting will be physical and preparations are already underway. We are planning for a big, onsite, live celebration of neuroscience in Paris featuring an inspiring, diverse scientific programme complemented by lively poster sessions, special interest events, networking and social activities. These will all provide numerous opportunities to connect face to face with world-class experts and peers. We are taking every scenario into consideration while our focus is on an in-person experience with all the great attributes of a FENS Forum.

As an attendee, you may submit your proposals for networking and satellite events  until 6 December 2021 to be included in the early Forum programme (final deadline on 20 April 2022).  Early registration, abstract submission and the FENS/IBRO-PERC Forum travel grant application open on 1 December 2021.

Please visit the FENS Forum 2022 website and follow FENS on social media to stay updated (#FENS2022). We are excited to meet again in 2022 and bring the community together to discuss our research, network, develop collaborations and celebrate neuroscience.

Welcome to Paris, bienvenue à Paris!
