Join us for the 1st Carolina Neurostimulation Conference May 21-23 at UNC - Chapel Hill. We will launch an official website soon such that you can register. For now, I suggest you reserve those dates on your calendar (registration will be cheap in comparison to other meeting!). We have a truly amazing speaker line up (plus great representation of outstanding women scientists!) and I am delighted to give you as the reader of my blog an unofficial peak into our list (more to come...)
I am on my way back from the epic ACNP 2017 meeting and I have spent some time thinking about the meta-aspects of going to scientific conferences, from practical to philosophical. Hopefully you will find my musings helpful!
Today, I have big news for you. Our Carolina Center for Neurostimulation at UNC - Chapel Hill is organizing a brain stimulation conference (May 21-23 2018)! We are in the process of inviting and confirming speakers, so you will have to be patient for bit longer, I will make sure to post updates here. For now, I ask you to save the date for the Carolina Neurostimulation Conference 2018.
The goal of the meeting is to create foster and celebrate a diverse community of brain stimulation researchers. We made it our priority to make the meeting accessible and affordable. The trainees (from undergrad to senior postdoc) in our Center are organizing the conference, from inviting the speakers all the way to the conference logistics. We are looking forward to having you!
One fact I am particular proud of is that we are trying hard to address one of the problems our community has, which is that women scientist have been (massively) underrepresented at previous meetings. More on this later.
I spent some time thinking about the field of non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS) and came up with the following four challenges we need to urgently and thoroughly discuss and address as a community:
That's it! Are you ready to collaborate to address these challenges? We have something special in the planning, more details later, but for now please hold May 21-23 2018 in your calendar, I promise it will be worth it!
