The deadline for Symposium proposals has been extended until February 7th, 2023

The 9th Mediterranean Neuroscience conference that will be held in Carthage (Tunisia, 14-18 October 2023) is now accepting submissions for proposed symposia. A typical symposium gathers 4-5 speakers, each addressing the general topic from a different perspective. The total allocated time is 2 hours per proposed symposium (linked symposia could be proposed, but their joint acceptance is not guaranteed, given our aim to increase thematic diversity). Symposia dealing with all areas of neuroscience research are warmly invited, including, biomedical, clinical, genetics, imaging, computational history and teaching neuroscience.

The confirmed keynote lectures will be:

Amadi-IhunwoAmadi Ihunwo,
SONA President - School of Anatomical Sciences, Faculty of Health Sciences, University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa
Daniele-PiomelliDaniele Piomelli,
Department of Anatomy & Neurobiology, University of California, Irvine, USA

The requirement to submit a proposal is active MNS membership for the current year (2023)

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.

Online submission for symposium proposals is open and ends 31st of January 2023. Submission Online at

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).
