It is our pleasure to announce that the II International Congress of Psychobiology will be celebrated in the Associated Center of the National Distance Education University (UNED) in Ávila, from 19 to 21 of July. After the success of previous meetings in A Coruña, Oviedo, Almería and Madrid, researchers in the Psychobiology Area coming from Universities in Spain, and also from different countries all over the world will again share a common venue for discussing their later contributions to the study of the biological bases of behaviour. The scientific programme includes talks and contributions of outstanding scientists both as plenary lectures and symposia.

The main goal of the meeting is to share and discuss the most recent discoveries in the field and to present to the scientific community and society the latest progress in the study of the mechanisms that subserve cognition and behavior. Special attention shall be paid to young researchers to whom we will dedicate two scientific workshops in collaboration with Societies that maintain close scientific interests to those of our community. We will also dedicate a significant number of slots in both the oral communications and poster presentations to these young researchers in order to provide them with the opportunity to present their data.

Please take these lines as our warmest and most enthusiastic invitation to attend the II International Congress of Psychobiology in Ávila. All our data, opinions and ideas shared together will certainly enrich and improve our research. Collaboration and discussion among researchers is of upmost importance for the progress of Science.

We look forward to seeing you in Avila!
