To our members: please be aware that some members have received fraudulent requests from the TravelerPoint agency requesting money for hotel bookings in Carthage. We exclusively partner with Quinta Travel and Event for all aspects of MNS2023, and all payments (registration/hotel booking) should be made only through the official MNS website.

The MNS strives to strengthen exchanges between Mediterranean neuroscientists, promote education in the neurosciences and increase public awareness of progress made. The participation of scientists from the South countries, whether as organizers of symposia or as speakers, is, therefore, highly encouraged. The gender ratio, and the geographical distribution in order to promote a diversity of the attending members, within each proposal will also be taken into account to reach a decision.

The MNS and its partners will provide a limited number of stipends for qualified early-career candidates (guidelines to be released soon). However, the symposium proponents are invited to seek funding for travel, accommodation and conference registration of the invited participants (MNS only offers logistic support at the meeting venue).
