We held the last International Conference on Learning and Memory in 2018 (LEARNMEM™2018) which was a tremendous success, attracting more than 1,000 scientists from 35 countries.

LEARNMEM™2023 will feature keynote talks by distinguished speakers, scientific symposia, lightning talks, open papers, poster sessions as well as professional development and networking opportunities.

The conference will have a substantial impact on the field by accelerating the pace of team science and providing a unique networking opportunity for the next generation of leaders in neuroscience. Join us and share your science, meet colleagues, make friends, and enjoy the sun and surf!
