The International Brain Research Organization (IBRO) – along with the Brazilian Society for Neuroscience and Behavior (SBNeC) – has successfully concluded the 9th IBRO World Congress of Neuroscience (July 7 to 11, 2015).
The IBRO World Congresses aim to promote neuroscience, increase communication and facilitate collaboration between investigators throughout the world. As participants come from every neuroscience domain and region of the world, IBRO Congresses offer a richness of content and diverse viewpoints that are unparalleled among neuroscience meetings.
The International Scientific Program Committee for 2015, chaired by Rafael Linden (Brazil), was appointed by the IBRO Executive Committee to select content that addressed cutting-edge science within a broad field of neuroscience topics. The basic criteria for selection were the scientific interest of the topics, the achievements of the speakers in the field, and their ability to present their work to a broad, multidisciplinary audience. Preference was given to symposia that covered a topic from several angles and aimed to present different views and opinions, rather than presenting the work of collaborating groups. A balanced geographic distribution was a priority as well as a representation of both genders.
Thank you for participating!
