WASHINGTON, D.C., — For the first time, the world’s largest gathering of neuroscience researchers, clinicians, and advocates will be held in an inclusive hybrid format. Neuroscience 2021 is one annual meeting with two experiences: a four-day virtual program (November 8-11, 2021) including reimagined virtual posters, and a four-day in-person program in Chicago at McCormick Place Convention Center (November 13–16, 2021). Both experiences feature a robust scientific program with lectures, panels, and posters on brain function, health, and disease, covering topics such as COVID-19, mind-body interactions, disease mechanisms, new tools and technology, and more.

What: Neuroscience 2021, the world’s largest source of emerging news on brain science and health

When: November 8-11 (online) and 13-16 (McCormick Place, Chicago)

With rising Delta Covid transmission rates and to ensure the safest possible in-person Neuroscience 2021 gathering, COVID-19 vaccinations will be required to attend the in-person portion of Neuroscience 2021. In addition, attendants are required to wear masks. Prior to the annual meeting, be prepared to upload documented proof that full vaccination was completed at least 14 days prior to arriving on-site in Chicago. As SfN continues to track the rate of Covid transmission and public health guidance, this policy may be updated accordingly. Read more about the Neuroscience 2021 health and safety requirements.
