SfN Global Connectome
SfN Global Connectome took place January 11-13, 2021. This three-day, cross-cutting digital neuroscience event allowed for scientific exchange via digital abstracts, dynamic talks, interactive Q&A, popular sessions such as dual perspectives and storytelling, a robust exhibit floor, a grad school fair, and a NeuroJobs job fair. This virtual experience provided new digital opportunities for the neuroscience community, focused on what’s new and upcoming in the field and allowed for SfN members to connect professionally to engage in scientific exchange in a time of unique challenges. This digital event provided a global opportunity to connect without the expense and time of travel and other inconveniences.

The Society for Neuroscience is announcing the cancellation of Neuroscience 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic that resulted in the Mayor of the District imposing continuing restrictions on large in-person events in the District of Columbia. The SfN annual meeting, scheduled for October 24-28, 2020 in Washington, D.C. at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, was slated to attract 30,000 attendees, considerably more than permitted by the Mayor's restrictions. After extensive analysis of the feasibility of holding the annual meeting and also prioritizing the health and safety of SfN members and their families and associates, the SfN Council determined there is no possibility of moving forward with the meeting.
