Dear friends and colleagues,
We are delighted to announce the 3rd Federation of Latin American and Caribbean Associations of Neurosciences (FALAN) Meeting and the XLIII Congress of the Brazilian Society for Neuroscience and Behavior (SBNeC), which will take place in the Hangar Convenções e Feiras da Amazônia, in Belém City, Pará, Brazil, from September 14 to 17, 2020. Our invited speakers Professors Edvard Moser (2014 Medicine & Physiology Nobel Priza Laureate), Carmen Sandi (President of the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies – FENS) and Peter Hegemann (Humboldt University, Berlin) welcome you! We expect to bring together approximately 2,500 participants on the field of Neuroscience. The meeting will feature symposia, national and international lectures, courses and approximately 900 poster presentations in a myriad of subjects within Neuroscience. International Brain Research Organization (IBRO) Latin American Regional Committee (LARC) is providing strong assistance.
The historic City of Belém was the main entry route to the Brazilian Amazon, where the municipality of Guamá River is located, next to the Amazon River. Belém wield a significant national influence, whether culturally, gastronomically, economically or politically. It has important monuments, parks and museums, such as the Peace Theater, the Emílio Goeldi Paraense Museum, the Ver-o-Peso market and high-impact religious events, such as the Círio de Nazaré, which attracts millions of people to the City every year.
We look forward to seeing you to share and enjoy an excellent scientific and cultural program!
