It is our pleasure to have Mongolian Neuroscience Society (MNS) joining FAONS as one of the member societies. MNS is an academic non-profit organization, founded in 2014 in Ulaanbaatar, which is aimed to develop neuroscience in Mongolia and represents this field of science in abroad.
The purpose of the Federation is to promote the advancement of neuroscience research and education in the Asian Oceanian regions, which include Asian countries, Australia, New Zealand and Islands in the Pacific and Indian Oceans. The Federation shall aim also at contributing to the advancement of neuroscience worldwide.
The FAONS Congress and FAONS Symposium are typically organised on an alternating 2 year cycle by representatives from a Neuroscience Society that is a member of FAONS.
The position of FAONS President on the FAONS Council is assumed by the President of the Neuroscience Society that is hosting either the Congress or the Symposium.
Joint meeting of the 4th Federation of Asian-Oceanian Neuroscience Societies (FAONS) Symposium and the 27th Malaysian Society of Neurosciences (MSN) & the 17th Neurosurgical Association of Malaysia (NAM)

We are happy to announce new members of the FAONS Executive Committee as follows:
The ALBA Network is an international initiative that promotes equity and diversity in brain sciences. As part of a global webinar series on region-specific diversity issues, the ALBA Network is holding an online panel discussion focusing on South-East Asia: Diversity in brain research in East & South-East Asia: a gender perspective.
Despite recent progress, the East & South-East Asia region's record on gender equality is still falling short. Stereotypes continue to limit women's equal participation in brain research, especially at senior levels. This webinar aims to highlight the various issues linked to gender in brain sciences in the region and to discuss possible paths to equity.
I would like to kindly invite you to join this webinar on Tuesday 11 May 2021 at 4 pm CST / 5 pm JST / 10 am CEST.
Please find information about the event below.
Further information on the event can be found on the ALBA website: http://www.alba.network/webinar-SEA-gender
Registration is free but compulsory, you can register here: https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_rueSu9_LR5mRTKFmlAU0iA
We encourage you to share this invitation with your colleagues and on social media.
The Society for Neuroscience provides international societies with a list of unique ID numbers (called "ISM abstract slots") that allow some of their members, who are not members of SfN, to submit abstracts to the SfN annual meeting and register for the meeting at the SfN member rate. The allocation of the abstract slots in the Asia/Pacific region is coordinated by FAONS.
The slots should be awarded first to students and postdoctoral candidates and secondly to people in Category I, II, and III countries of the region as defined by the World Bank.
For those who are in interested and eligible, please send request to firstname.lastname@example.org and specify you name, e-mail address, country, and status (student, postdoctoral candidate, junior faculty, tenured faculty) by no later than July 14th (Wed.), 2021.
