The Childbrain Conference

Leuven, Belgium 5 - 7 Febuary, 2019

We are pleased to invite you to the "ChildBrain Conference" organized by ChildBrain Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action (MSCA) Innovative Training Network (ITN), that will be held from 5 until 7 February 2019, at KU Leuven, in Leuven, Belgium.

This conference is about research on children’s brain in typical development and brain disorders, specifically on results based on recent neuroimaging methods combining modalities as electroencephalography (EEG), magnetoencephalography (MEG) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). At the conference, invited speakers and researchers from ChildBrain will give presentations in four main sessions: atypical neurodevelopment, typical neurodevelopment, methodological advances for pediatric neuroimaging and future perspectives. There is also the possibility to attend a pre-conference session in which a methodological demonstration is given on the acquisition and application of head models in children brain data

We aim at calling together researchers and students from various domains such as language and audition, as well as mathematics, physics and engineering to build bridges between applications and methodology and share this common and exciting interest on child brain development.

For participants to the conference, there is the opportunity to share your work in a poster session (potrait A0 format) and/or as a selected speaker. If you wish to present at the Childbrain Conference, you are invited to send an abstract (max. 750 words).

You can submit your abstract and register here. The abstract submission deadline is on 19 January 2019 at 23:59 CET. You can view our detailed schedule for further information.

About ChildBrain

ChildBrain project is a Horizon2020  Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action (MSCA)  Innovative Training Network (ITN) – European Training Network  (ETN).

The purpose of the ChildBrain ETN is to train young scientists, i.e. Early Stage Researchers (ESRs), to utilise evidence-based neuroscientific knowledge for helping children, especially those at high risk for dropout due to neurocognitive disorders, to meet future educational and societal demands.

The ChildBrain European Training Network is a joint venture of several scientific and commercial host institutions.

The project is coordinated by Prof. Paavo Leppänen, University of Jyväskylä.
