IBRO World Congresses


The 11th IBRO World Congress of Neuroscience
will be hosted by the Spanish Society of Neuroscience (SENC)
 Granada, Spain
9-13 September 2023

In collaboration with neuroscience societies around the world, IBRO holds international congresses once every four years to promote the field of neuroscience, increase awareness about neuroscience research and facilitate collaboration between students, teachers, researchers and other stakeholders.

A key objective of IBRO-sponsored congresses is to advance neuroscience in regions that need assistance. This can be achieved by holding regional congresses and meetings and by facilitating the participation of scientists from economically-challenged regions at congresses and meetings held in parts of the world with greater scientific strength and resources. To further facilitate this role, the congress/meeting venues alternate from region to region.

Close collaboration of the Congress organizers with IBRO leadership, the IBRO World Congress Committee and other scientific societies and related organizations is encouraged. Such links help ensure that these events achieve their science-fostering goals, add valuable resources and reduce risk. The selection of lecturers and scientific symposia is established by IBRO’s World Congress International Scientific Program Committee.

In 2023, the Spanish Neuroscience Society (SENC, Sociedad Española de Neurociencia) will host the 11th IBRO World Congress of Neuroscience at the Granada Exhibition and Conference Centre (Palacio de Exposiciones y Congresos de Granada) from 9-13 September 2023.
