Dear Members of the Swiss Society for Neuroscience
SSN is in the process of upgrading its Website.
As part of this process you must re-register.
Your re-registration is coupled to the renewal of your Membership of SSN for 2019.
We ask you kindly to do this as soon as possible, and certainly within two weeks! Your cooperation will enable us to move on quickly to open the SSN also to new member applications.
(Re-registration and payment should take you less than 10 minutes.)
Please follow the link below to find an explanation of the move to the new SSN Website, as well as instructions as to re-register and renew your membership.
If you have already registered on the new Site, then please disregard this message.
If you have previously registered at SSN using more than one email address, then you may now receive multiple requests for re-registration at each of those addresses.
In this case please re-register at only one address of your choice.
Then, please email [tocco-encoded-addr:MTE5LDEwMSw5OCwxMDksOTcsMTE1LDExNiwxMDEsMTE0LDY0LDExNSwxMTksMTA1LDExNSwxMTUsMTEwLDEwMSwxMTcsMTE0LDExMSwxMTUsOTksMTA1LDEwMSwxMTAsOTksMTAxLDQ2LDk5LDEwNA==] with the subject heading (in capitals) REDUNDANT. In the body of the email indicate your first and last name, and which of your email addresses is redundant.
Thank you for your careful help in this process!
