    Call for Symposia for the Joint ANA/HNS Meeting 2023

    Dear ANA members!

    We hope that COVID will not prevent us from holding another in-person meeting next year and discuss science in our biennial conference. 

    Next year's conference will be a special one; the leaderships of the Austrian Neuroscience Association (ANA) and the Hungarian Neuroscience Society (HNS) decided to hold a joint meeting in Budapest between 01.02.2023 and 03.02.2023.

    We hereby invite all of you to think about and propose a symposium for the next year's conference. The length of the symposia will be 1 hour 45 minutes, with 4-5 speakers each giving a presentation of about 20 minutes.

    We kindly ask anyone who has a symposium proposal (maximum of one page with the title, names of the presenters and a short description of the topic) to send it to and by 20 MARCH 2022.

    We wish everyone good health and many discoveries.

    Yours sincerely,

    Isabella Sarto-Jackson and Zoltán Nusser
