This list contains conferences for the year 2023. We have recently uploaded a blog about the 2024 conferences, which you can find here

It’s January, and last year was a tumultuous year to say the least. But, also a year in which we finally got to meet you face to face again at conferences such as Neuroscience 2022. Now, let’s look forward to next year. We’ve put together a short list of the best (behavioral) neuroscience conferences for you to attend. Opportunities to meet up and talk science!

Meet Noldus at some of these neuroscience meetings this year!

These 11 neuroscience conferences have been a stapler on many calendars for years. They have been some of our favorite meetings when it comes to meeting researchers and customers. We're looking forward to meeting you again in person and can't wait to see you at some of these neuroscience conferences!
