The 49th Meeting of the European Brain and Behavior Society (EBBS) took place as a hybrid meeting on September 4-8th, with the in-person part taking place at the EPFL Rolex Forum in Lausanne (Switzerland) from September 4-7th as well as through the conference virtual platform. We also had an additional day (September 8th) in which posters were presented and discussed online only.

We had around 640 registered delegates, half of them for the online version and half of them joined us in person in Lausanne. EBBS_2021 was a truly hybrid meeting, with all the sessions including participants online and onsite.

We are greatly thankful to all the participants, and would like to extend very special thanks to our outstanding plenary speakers, hot topic speakers, discussants, chairs, symposia speakers, and poster presenters! The quality of science was outstanding!

The Meeting was largely publicized through the EBBS_2021 Twitter account (@EBBS2021) and the EBBS Society Twitter (@EBBS_Science) and Facebook accounts. You can find moments from the meeting in all this accounts – for Twitter, search for #EBBS2021.

The quality of the meeting and the possibilities for scientific and personal exchanges that it brought to all, online and onsite, participants would not have been possible without the great support of the meeting sponsors. We are greatly thankful to them.

Importantly, the virtual format is offered to all participants. During the 3 months after the meeting, registered participants to any modality have on-demand access to the meeting’s presentations by connecting with their credentials to the EBBS_2021 virtual platform.

Many thanks for your participation and looking forward to further interactions!

See you in Amsterdam for EBBS_2023!
