We would like to alert all of our members and delegates to be aware of possible scams and we strongly advise you to only use these online registration and accommodation services for your bookings.
The following categories for participants apply:
Member: A student or regular member of one of the FENS member societies with full membership (see the list of member societies of FENS). A member of the Society for Neuroscience (SfN) may also benefit from the same registration fees as FENS members. To register as an SfN member please use the Non-member entry. You will be asked to indicate your SfN member number at a late stage. Please note however, that this option is offered only to SfN members who live and have their professional activity in a country where there is no neuroscience society member of FENS (see list of member societies on FENS website).
Non-member: A participant from academic or non-profit organizations.
Student: A pre-doctoral student.
Postdoctoral fellows, hospital residents, interns and laboratory technicians do not qualify for the student rate.
Pre-doctoral students registering online, must upload a letter proving their status (i.e. a signed statement from their Department Head or supervisor). Upon on-site registration such a proof should be presented as well.
Note: The proof of student status is unrelated to the request for a FENS/IBRO-PERC travel grant. For further information, please click here.
Corporate: A participant from a corporate, for profit company or organisation.
Partner society registration rates: Members of the Australasian Neuroscience Society, the Canadian Association for Neuroscience, Chinese Neuroscience Society, Federation of Latin American and Caribbean Neuroscience Societies and the Japan Neuroscience Society, who are not based in a country with a national member society of FENS, may benefit from reduced registration rates for the Forum 2020. In order to take advantage of this benefit, please register directly through your national society.
