The annual SANS Symposium and AGM will be held at Lord Charles Hotel in Somerset West. The symposium will be hosted by the Biological Psychiatry Congress.

We invite SANS members to present their neuroscience research topics (not only psychiatric research) and to attend the annual SANS AGM to discuss matters related to the progress of the Society. Members are encouraged to nominate promising neuroscientists from southern Africa to be co-opted onto the executive committee. A focus of this year’s AGM will be transformation of the committee.

SANS members can now RSVP for the gala dinner at a reduced price of R250 per person. Contact the conference organizer (sonja@londocor.co.za) in order to do so.

Accommodation at the Lord Charles Hotel

We look forward to seeing old and new SANS members at this beautiful venue to talk neuroscience and discuss how we can move the Society forward.
