BaCI 2017: International Conference on Basic and Clinical Multimodal Imaging: Where experts in basic and clinical neuroscience meet

We are pleased to announce the 3rd BaCI meeting to take place in Bern, Switzerland from August 29 to September 2 2017.

As joint meeting of ECNS, ISBET, ISFSI and ISNIP, the BaCI 2017 meeting will be an exchange platform for ideas and knowledge of the members of the different societies. We specifically aim at fostering discussions among the society members and profiting from their complementary expertise in clinical applications, methodological EEG, psychiatric topics and inverse solutions of EEG data by organizing joint symposia hosted by at least two different societies.

In addition there will be a public opening lecture, a number of keynote lectures with renowned speakers, satellite symposia and training courses, and poster and free communication sessions where participants will be able to present their own research.
