fUSbrain2019: International workshop on Functional Ultrasound Imaging of the Brain

fUSbrain2019: International workshop on Functional Ultrasound Imaging of the Brain


The first international workshop dedicated to “Functional ultrasound imaging of the brain” will take place from October 27th to November 2nd 2019 in the beautiful setting of Cargèse in Corsica, France. This workshop will bring together physicists, biologists and clinicians to share their knowledge and latest advances on different aspects of functional ultrasound imaging of the brain, from technical developments to fundamental and clinical research.

An outstanding line-up of international experts has been invited to give talks on a wide range of topics, including but not limited to: basics and principles of functional ultrasound imaging, technical developments towards 3D imaging, neuro-vascular coupling, brain functions during cognitive tasks, study of the somato-sensory systems, ultrasonic neuromodulation, blood-brain-barrier permeabilization.

Researchers, clinicians and students in the fields of ultrasound or neurosciences are welcome to attend and to apply for poster presentations. The workshop will foster transdisciplinary interactions in a friendly atmosphere.

The program is available here.

Registration is now closed. If you have not received any e-mail from us, please contact us at physmed-workshop@espci.fr.

Registration fees: 350€ for students, 500€ for non-students.

The registration fees cover the attendance to the workshop as well as the accommodation and lunches from Sunday evening to Saturday morning. Payment is due by September 15th, 2019.

The workshop will be held in the Institut d’Etudes Scientifiques de Cargèse, located on the west coast of Corsica. The institute hosts international scientific events since the 1960s in a beautiful seaside setting with direct access to a private beach.

Shared acccomodation will be arranged by the organizers in the village houses.

The easiest access is through Ajaccio airport (1h30 flight from Paris). Transfer between the workshop venue and Ajaccio airport will be organized for the workshop attendees for an arrival on Sunday afternoon and a departure on Saturday morning. In order to book a seat in the airport shuttle, please send your travel itinerary (outbound and inbound date/time, flight number) at physmed-workshop@espci.fr
