SfNIRS Newsletter March 2023

Welcome to the March 2023 issue of the SfNIRS newsletter, covering the period from May 2022 (yes, May 2022!) to February 2023. It has been almost a year! During this time, the pandemic has ended for the majority of us and most are back on campus, we have our most successful conference to date in Boston, and we have already started working on the next one, which will take place in Birmingham. Ten months is a lot; not surprisingly, we have a lot of material and stories to share.


SfNIRS Newsletter May 2022

Welcome to the May 2022 issue of the SfNIRS newsletter, covering the period from January 2022 through April 2022. The Society’s biennial meeting, fNIRS 2022, is fast approaching, the program is ready, registration for courses and abstract submissions are open, and preparations are going smoothly. Much is going on in the fNIRS world: an EDI committee has been formed, the communications committee has many new faces, and you likely have noticed an increase in society-related emails. Here is a summary of all that has been going on over the last few months.


SfNIRS Newsletter January 2022

Welcome to the January 2022 issue of the SfNIRS newsletter, covering the period from July 2021 through December 2021. It has been an unusually long period between issues, which are otherwise more or less quarterly. Lest you think this was a period of low activity, the longer time reflects a substantial increase of activity and our correspondingly busier agendas. Since July 2021, Executive Board elections for SfNIRS took place, the 2021 SfNIRS virtual meeting happened (and was a smashing success), a new DEI committee was created, the website saw important changes in organization and appearance, and many other activities have continued that are organized and/or endorsed by the Society. In short, it’s been a busy time! Here is a summary of the second half of 2021.


SfNIRS Newsletter July 2021

Welcome to the July 2021 issue of the SfNIRS newsletter, covering the period from April 2021 through June 2021. The process of compiling nominations for this year’s board election is now finished, and we are looking forward to the elections themselves. Preparations for the 2021 SfNIRS virtual meeting have picked up speed. The educational committee has done a great job: we have a dozen sessions altogether! Our last call saw Rens Burghardt join the SfNIRS Communications Committee. On top of all that, SfNIRS research webinars have continued providing us with overviews of some of the latest research from our early career members. As some labs are slowly –but surely!–returning to campus, research activity is picking up pace. A slew of new research findings were highlighted by the many news items in which fNIRS was featured.


SfNIRS Newsletter April 2021

Welcome to the April 2021 issue of the SfNIRS newsletter, covering the period from November 2020 through March 2021. This period has seen the board agree on the tough but necessary decision of delaying our biennial meeting one more year. Also, the election of a new president-elect and board members is approaching and we are starting nominations. Other news include the updated schedules of educational tutorials, research webinars, the new calendar feature, etc. Here is a summary of what happened in these last months.


SfNIRS Newsletter November 2020

Welcome to the November 2020 issue of the SfNIRS newsletter, covering the period from July 2020 through October 2020. The news continues to be dominated by the COVID19 Pandemic, but the fNIRS datablitz demonstrated that activity remains high in labs around the world. Our community is resilient! In addition to lab-specific research, many activities supported by the society have been ongoing: educational tutorials, research webinars, and of course continued planning on the part of the SfNIRS Communications Committee. Here is a summary of events…


SfNIRS Newsletter July 2020

Welcome to the July 2020 issue of the SfNIRS newsletter, which covers the period from March 2020 through June 2020. This period has been dominated by the COVID19 pandemic, which has been difficult for research and business. We have had to adapt to the circumstances, including scarce access to our laboratories, restricted movement, a switch to virtual meetings and conferences, among other things. Nonetheless, it has been a period full of news. Here, you’ll find what we think is a complete summary.

The communications committee looks forward to hearing from you about future news items you’d like to see posted.


SfNIRS Newsletter March 2020

Welcome to the March 2020 issue of the SfNIRS newsletter, which is intended to serve as a save-the-date for October’s fNIRS meeting in Boston, currently scheduled for Oct. 10th through Oct. 14 (https://fnirs2020.org/program/schedule/), and to provide some news about new fNIRS developments.


SfNIRS Newsletter October 2019

Welcome to the October 2019 issue of the SfNIRS newsletter. This newsletter covers the period since our last newsletter, which came out in June 2019. This period has seen activity in both hemispheres of the world, further progress in preparation for fNIRS2020, and the addition of affective computing to the ever-increasing number of applications.


SfNIRS Newsletter June 2019

Welcome to the June 2019 issue of the SfNIRS newsletter. This newsletter covers the period since our last newsletter, which came out in March 2019. The amount of news that our community has generated in this period is hard to fit into our newsletter. Here is our best effort at summarizing it all. We hope that you enjoy reading it as much as we did preparing it!
