We invite proposals for Mini-symposiums to be held in conjunction with the 2020 International Neural Regeneration Symposium (INRS2020) that will take place in Nantong, China during November 12-15, 2020.


Date and time: 2020-11-15 (8:00-12:00)

Program: To be announced.



INRS2020 Mini-symposiums will facilitate the exchange of new ideas in all areas related to neural regeneration research and practice. A variety of formats can be considered, ranging from traditional research paper/poster presentations to extremely interactive and participatory sessions. We particularly invite proposals that cover controversial viewpoints, emerging topics or transformative ideas aimed at changing basic science to clinical therapeutic development, where a focused dialogue among participants may lead to interesting follow-on research, basic investigations or clinical practice improvement!


INRS2020 Mini-symposium organizers will be honored to join in the Mini-symposium Committee, and are responsible for establishing a program committee, collecting and evaluating submissions, notifying authors of acceptance or rejection in due time, and ensuring a transparent and fair selection process, organizing selected papers into sessions, and assigning session chairs. A INRS2020 workshop is a half day event, and takes place on November 15 (Sunday), the last day of INRS2020.
