Brainbox Initiative Conference 2019
Registration for the BrainBox Initiative Conference 2019 is now open. The conference will be returning to the Wellcome Collection in London from September 26 – 27 September, 2019. Make sure to register early to secure your place at #BBIConf2019.
Please note that registering for the Brainbox Initiative Conference does not automatically process registration for the Computational Modelling Workshop. Registration for this event must be completed separately.
This year’s BrainBox Initiative Conference will be chaired by Dr Jacinta O’Shea of the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences, University of Oxford, and brings together rich, field-leading expertise in non-invasive brain stimulation and brain imaging. Our conference is unique in encouraging the presentation of groundbreaking research from neuroscientists at all stages of their careers, offering postdoctoral researchers and some of the most well-known names in neuroscience the opportunity to present their work on the same stage. Through bringing together such a wide audience, the Brainbox Initiative Conference stimulates new avenues for networking, discoveries, and collaboration in the field.
