fNIRS-UK 2019

By Hamid Dehghani and George Rowley.

The planning for the 2019 fNIRS-UK meeting is well underway, which will be held at the University of Birmingham, UK on the 26th and 27th September, 2019.

Based on the feedback from 2017 attendees, as part of the meeting we have organised a half-day workshop on Tissue Optics, Overview of data analysis and optical parameter recovery. This will then be followed by a social on the evening of the 26th September with the conference taking place on Friday 27th September, with a mixture of talks and poster presentations. We are happy to report that our invited speakers include Arjun Yodh (UPenn, USA) and Antonia Hamilton (Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, UCL).

The meeting will be held at the newly opened conference centre at the University of Birmingham, which is also next door to the Centre for Human Brain Health, for which tours will be available.
The conference is open to all and we welcome submissions of abstract from a range of applications of NIRS. The deadline is fast approaching on the 5th of July and we encourage submission as soon as possible to allow us a timely review.

The meeting is in part being sponsored by BitMap: Brain injury and trauma monitoring using advanced photonics (an H2020 MSCA-ITN-ETN – Training Network, http://www.bitmap-itn.eu/) and is therefore free to register. We would welcome sponsorship from industry to help further support this meeting, so please do get in touch.
