The European Society for Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience aims to promote scientific enquiry within the field of human cognitive, affective and social neuroscience, particularly with respect to collaboration and exchange of information between researchers in different European countries through scientific meetings, workshops, summer schools, and such other activities.
It has come to our attention that some members of the Society have been receiving emails from what appear to be the email addresses of board members asking for help, which typically involve money transfers. Please note that:
Please ignore such emails and stay vigilant for online scams
The ESCAN Board is offering a conference fee waiver for ESCAN members (pre-doctoral and PhD students) who have financial difficulties to afford the registration fee for the online conference ESCAN2021.
Please send a request to waive the ESCAN2021 registration fee to firstname.lastname@example.org and include the following:
- Your name, affiliation, position and contact information.
- A brief statement (1/2 page) to explain your motivation to attend ESCAN2021 and your financial circumstances.
- A formal letter from your university or supervisor in which it is stated that the conference fee will not be reimbursed.
Note that you can apply for the conference fee waiver when you have paid the early registration fee and when you have paid the late registration fee, but that the waiver is only applicable to the conference registration fees for ESCAN members.
The deadline for submitting a request is June 4th, 2021. We aim to inform applicants who will receive the waiver by June 11th, 2021. If we receive a large number of requests, the ESCAN Board will allocate conference waivers through a lottery.
The 5th international conference of the European Society for Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience (ESCAN) will take place virtual on 23-26 June, 2021.
Following the electronic ballot for the ESCAN elections 2020 that was concluded earlier this month (with a participation of 34.4% of all voting members), we are pleased to share with you the results of the election.
We have four new ESCAN board members: Aikaterini (Katerina) Fotopoulou (University College London), Henk van Steenbergen (University of Leiden), Lorena Chanes (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona), and Shaimaa Nasr Amin (Hashemite University - Cairo University). Congratulation to all!
Manos Tsakiris (Royal Holloway, University of London) has been confirmed as the new president of ESCAN. Congratulations Manos, and good luck in leading the society in the coming years with hopefully better times ahead.
The results for election of the new President-Elect led to a tie: both candidates (Agnieszka Wykowska, Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, and Giorgia Silani, University of Vienna) received exactly the same number of votes!
The board agreed that this is an exceptional event and both candidates should have the possibility to take on the role of President. Therefore, for the duration of the presidential mandate of 2023-2024, both Agnieszka and Giorgia will share the role of ESCAN President. The candidates will alternate in holding the executive powers of presidency: Agnieszka in 2023, Giorgia in 2024. Until then, both candidates will share the responsibilities of Presidents-Elect. Congratulations to both!
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the ESCAN 2020 Organizing Committee, the ESCAN Board, and the management of Asszisztencia Congress Bureau agreed to postpone the ESCAN 2020 Conference to next year. We trust that by then the global pandemic will no longer be part of our daily lives, and will not impact business operations, travels and conferences anymore. This decision was taken in the interest of all and serves the safety and good health of delegates, speakers, exhibitors, organizers, and service providers.
The 2021 conference location will not change (Budapest, Hungary) and the new dates are June 23-26 2021.

The ESCAN Board is pleased to announce that the ESCAN Young Investigator Award 2020 has been attributed to Leor Zmigrod (University of Cambridge). Congratulations and looking forward to the award address that will take place at the ESCAN Conference!
