It is a great pleasure and honour to invite you to the 9th Mediterranean Neuroscience Society (MNS) Conference which will take place in beautiful Carthage in Tunisia, a UN ESCO World Heritage Site and certainly one of the most beautiful places in the Mediterranean, from 14th
October 2023. We look forward to welcoming researchers, scientists, clinicians, students, educators, local and regional authorities, as well as civil society organisations in the neurosciences field and those interested in any aspect of research on brain function.
The COVID-19 pandemic has revealed vast inequities between populations and scientific research and technological development have become more necessary than ever for a better future and better equality. Also, a place to connect scientists from all around the world and let them share their research discoveries and experiences with the scientific community, particularly from developing countries or minorities now more than ever is needed. In this context, we hope that scientific interest in developing countries can be expanded particularly in neuroscience and the impact of MNS conferences is certainly in favour of the idea.
MNS Conference aims to promote knowledge and foster closer these mutual ties between the Mediterranean neuroscientists and neuroscientists at large and with your participation MNS will succeed.
As with previous MNS conferences, communications at the meeting will include high-quality Keynote and Symposia speakers and we would very sincerely thank President Giuseppe Di Giovanni and all the members of the MNS council for their work and commitment, especially to those most involved in the organization of the Conference. We also thank IBRO and FENS for their invaluable support. Their great teamwork will surely make this meeting one of the best.
Finally, we hope you enjoy the chance to learn and network at MNS2023 as you will also have the opportunity to visit Carthage with its history stretching back nearly three millennia, the capital Tunis and the elegant village of Sidi Bou Said where the blue and white houses are the best of traditional Tunisian architecture.
