Christmas greetings 2018

Dear all,

On behalf of the Society for fNIRS, the Communication Committee would like to wish you all the best in this holiday season and the coming new year!

This has been an exciting scientific year for the fNIRS community. The Tokyo biennial meeting made it clear that our community keeps growing stronger every day. New theoretical insights, hardware improvements, data analysis tools, clinical and scientific applications… the advancement is impressive and sometimes it is difficult to keep up to speed with all the happenings. We, from the Communications Committee, are here to help as much as we can. We would like to invite you to post your latest NIRS-related research news in our Facebook site, tweet with the #fNIRS hashtag or, if you like, send us any information about events, jobs advertisements, publications, graduation of students in the field, etc. that you want us to consider for inclusion in the next newsletter.

Our resolution for the new year is to improve the way we disseminate all fNIRS related news to maximize their impact. We intend to keep you up-to-date through the maintenance of the society website ( https://fnirs.org/ ) and the continuation of our newsletter.

Remember that fNIRS 2020 will be held in Boston on October 11-14, 2020.

We hope you have a successful and productive 2019!

Warmest regards,

The Communications Committee
