The Australasian Neuroscience Society will be hosting the 40th ANS Meeting to be held on 8 - 11 December 2020 at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre. The Annual Scientific Meeting of the Australasian Neuroscience Society is one of the largest annual biomedical conferences held in the Australasian region. The ANS 2020 also marks 40 years of ANS, the future of neuroscience has never been more exciting.
Our local organising committee, chaired jointly by Associate Professor Stuart Hodgetts, Dr Ann-Maree Vallence and Associate Professor Julian Heng, are working together to ensure that Perth 2020 has a stimulating scientific program, including Nobel Laureate Professor Edvard Moser to give a new Presidential Lecture, as well as international and national plenaries, symposia, and satellite meetings.
The theme for the 2020 ASM is, 2020: A Forward Vision. 2020 is typically associated with hindsight, and whilst this will be a great opportunity to reflect on the past 40 years, the theme of the ASM highlights Australasia as a progressive, forward-thinking centre for neuroscience.
So mark your diaries and stay tuned for further planning information.
We look forward to welcoming you to Perth in December.
