Dear BNS member,

The BNS Executive Committee would like to announce a call for abstracts, to be presented at the BNS symposium on Neurological Infections (7 DEC 2019).

Selected scientific work in the field of neurosciences can be presented as an oral communication or a poster presentation.

In order to be selected for an oral communication, applications must meet the requirements of the BNS research prize 2019:

Junior BNS members (≤ 35 years old on September 20, 2019) can apply with a full length paper that has been accepted in 2018 or 2019 for publication in an international journal. Submitted papers will be scored based on methodology and originality. Review papers are not allowed, but systematic reviews will be considered. The applicant should be first or senior author. Winners of the 2018 BNS research prizes cannot apply in 2019. Only application of BNS members will be considered. Non-members can apply for membership of the society by sending a CV to BNS administration and by paying the membership fee, before sending in the application for the BNS research prize. These eligibility criteria will be applied strictly. The final accepted version of the work or a proof of acceptance in case the work is still in press should be submitted to the BNS ExCo by email to the BNS administration (bns@neuro.be), together with a motivation letter and a CV. The deadline for submission is September 20, 2019 (midnight).

A maximum of four prizes of 500€ each will be awarded. An abstract of the oral communication should be submitted for publication in Acta Neurologica Belgica

Applications that are not selected as winners of the BNS research prize may be presented as a poster at the BNS symposium Neurological Infections (7 DEC 2019). The call for abstracts is also open for research not meeting the requirements of the BNS research prize (for example, non-published material, case reports…)/ A 1-page abstract and CV need to be sent to the BNS administration, at the latest on September 20, 2019 (midnight).
