Neuroscience 2015 - Chicago, October 2015
The Society for Neuroscience (SfN) will be holding its annual meeting, Neuroscience 2015, at McClintock Place in Chicago this October. This event will be taking place October 17 – 21, and will be attended by nearly 30,000 people from all over the world. The purpose of Neuroscience 2015, as with previous years’ meetings, is to facilitate the collaboration and the exchange of ideas between the experts that will be attending the event, as well as aiding their career development.
This mission definitely strikes a chord with us at the Office for Science and Technology (OS&T), as we seek to provide the same opportunities for French and American scientists, including neuroscientists. Naturally, the OS&T of the Embassy of France in the United States will be present at Neurosciences 2015, as it has done in previous years, at our booth, “Neuroscience in France: from Education to Research.” At Neurosciences 2014, which took place at the Washington D.C. Convention Center last November, our booth attracted about 800 people, who were mostly post-doctoral students planning to pursue careers in France and researchers interested in collaboration and exchange programs with research teams in France (see article in French).
We would like to thank our partners, Inserm, the Neurosciences Department of Aviesan, the Ecole des Neurosciences de Paris – Ile de France (ENP), the Société française des Neurosciences (The French Neuroscience Society), whose contributions have been essential to making this booth possible.
Specifically, Neuroscience will be comprised of lectures given by major researchers in the field, presentations of new findings, technologies, and publication tools, as well as networking events.

Society for Brain Mapping and Therapeutics World Congress 2016 - Miami, April 2016
The 13th annual World Congress of the Society for Brain Mapping and Therapeutics (SBMT) will be taking place April 8-10, 2016 at the Miami Convention Center. The purpose of the event is to bring together Neuroscience students, researchers and involved professionals to bolster further research in brain and spinal cord mapping and in Image Guided Therapies. The congress will cover many topics from a broad spectrum of brain-related fields, ranging from Neurosurgery and Psychiatry to Policy and Business Development. In addition to educational opportunities, this interdisciplinary convention will also provide networking events to its participants. The SBMT will also host a black tie gala to both celebrate and facilitate current and future research and development in the field of Neuroscience.
