President's new year's greeting message


Best wishes to all FAONS member societies in the new year! It is an honor and a pleasure for the Japan Neuroscience Society to host the 8th FAONS meeting in Fukuoka on July 24-27, 2024, as part of its Annual Meeting. We will also hold a joint Annual Meeting with the Japanese Society of Neuropsychopharmacology and the Japanese Society for Neurochemistry. Thus, the conference is expected to bring together many researchers from around the world, including Japan's leading basic and clinical neuroscience researchers. There are convenient access points to and from the Fukuoka Convention Center, both domestically and internationally. Fukuoka Airport, the gateway to Asia, is served by many international flights and has frequent connections with Tokyo International Airport. It is only a 5-minute subway ride from Fukuoka Airport to JR Hakata Station and a 10-minute bus ride from JR Hakata Station to the Convention Center. Looking forward to seeing you all in 2024 in Fukuoka.
