Call for Symposia

Dear EBPS members,

We are looking forward to hosting you at the Biennial Meeting of the EBPS, which will be held in Braga, Portugal, from the 28th until the 31st of August 2019.

The main goal of this international conference is to provide a scientific program that will address the most recent advances in behavioural pharmacology. The conference sessions will cover a broad spectrum of topics from basic science to applied research, from animal models investigating neuropharmacological mechanisms and behaviour to studies focusing on humans. Therefore, we encourage you to submit proposals for symposia for the 18th EBPS Meeting and to contribute to its success.

Proposals for symposia should be submitted to the following e-mail address:
Deadline for submission is the 15th of November 2018.
Deadline for submission has been extended – DEADLINE: 24th NOVEMBER

Proposals should include a title, a short description of the topic and its significance, and proposed speakers.

Symposium proposals should adhere to the guidelines below. Sessions involving timely and innovative topics are encouraged.

Selected symposia will be announced on 15th January 2019.

We look forward to receiving your proposals!
