Call for Symposium Proposals

European Brain and Behaviour Society

Symposia Guidelines

The EBBS program committee welcomes excellent symposia that advance our knowledge of the brain and behavior, in health and disease, and using all research approaches.

Excellent proposals covering either a hot topic in the field or a novel topic not represented in previous EBBS meetings will be favoured.

A symposium may be proposed by any established researcher, who did not have a symposium proposal accepted at the EBBS 2019 meeting. Members of the Program committee can neither propose a symposium nor be speakers in a symposium. Proposers of successful symposia would be expected to be or become full members of the EBBS*.  

Each symposium will require a chair and four speakers (the chair may be one of the speakers). Preference will be given to proposals that represent diversity (across age, sex, and origin).

Note: We are aware that the current situation with COVID-19 may lead to some uncertainty for speakers at this stage. Alongside our preferred plans for a conference we can all attend in person, we are preparing plans for the meeting to be held virtually or as a hybrid meeting if needed. We hope that symposium proposals can therefore be submitted with confidence.
