Call for abstracts
We are finally in 2024, the year of fNIRS conference. We are now only 9 months away of the conference dates. The call for abstracts is now open. Submissions site opens on February 15th and deadline for submissions is April 19th, 2024.
Call for educational courses
We are happy to announce that the call for minicourse proposals is now open! Educational courses will take place in the modern teaching and learning building (in the picture). See all the details in the educational course page and submit a proposal by 1 March 2024 on this link.
Early Career Investigator (ECI) awards, SfNIRS community awards, Scientific excellence awards, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) travel awards; make sure you make your nominations for the different categories by June 14th. Read all about the awards and how to submit your nominations here.
Updates to the program
The latest updates to the program and the latest bio of confirmed speakers are now online. Our keynote speaker will be Prof Joe Culver and we will have a presidential lecture by Prof David Delpy. A special session on the very hot topic of neuroethics fostered by Prof Clare Elwell is now confirmed.
Sam and Jiaming are already on the task of recruiting reviewers! To ensure the quality of the reviews we are targeting our invitations to distinguished members of our community. If you have already received an invitation or receive yours in the next few days, we would appreciate your early confirmation of your willingness to support fNIRS 2024.
Meet Bham through our website
Birmingham has a lot more to offer than just the archetypical “more canals than Venice”. Have a preview of Birmingham through this conference website where some of the individual pages are dedicates to some of the Bham attractions, neighbourhoods such as Digbeth or the Jewellery Quarter, historical buildings, museums, theatres, …and of course, our very own campus where the conference will take place like Winterbourne house and gardens in the picture!
Want to get involved?
We have done a lot already, yet a lot more needs to be done to have everything ready for September. Do you have any design skills? Why not help with designing the abstract book? Any EDI interests? Why not help supporting managing the awards? Want a sneak preview on those posters? Why not join the virtual conference team? There are several other tasks. Let us know you are interested in helping!
SfNIRS board elections
…and one final thing! The society board elections are coming soon. Stay alert for the news.
