• The European Molecular and Cellular Cognition Society (EMCCS) is an international organization focused on fostering scientific exchanges in Europe in the field of Molecular and Cellular Cognition. The 8th biannual EMCCS meeting will be held in Berlin at CharitéCrossOver (CCO) Auditorium, Charité Campus, Berlin on July 6th, 2018 immediately before the FENS meeting, where we will present and discuss exciting science. The meeting will survey recent discoveries in the field of molecular and cellular cognition. There will be 14 oral presentations including 4 speakers chosen from submitted abstracts. As in previous occasions, we intend to have a Poster and lunch session. Posters will be on display from 12:30 to 19:00. We expect that the poster boards have a landscape format with the same dimensions as those used at FENS. 

    Meeting registration is now available at Eventbrite.

    Abstracts should be submitted according to the provided template by email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

The FENS Forum of Neuroscience is the largest international neuroscience meeting in Europe, involving all neuroscience societies’ members of FENS, and held biannually on every even year. The FENS Forum strives to promote excellence in neuroscience research in Europe at large and to facilitate the interaction between scientists in and outside Europe. Participants in the FENS Forums are scientists at all career levels working in all areas of neuroscience research. Students and early career researchers are extensively represented as a group in the Forum.
