It has been decided that, until further notice, the World Association of Neurotechnology will exist in a virtual communication format and will not hold set conferences on a biennial basis.
The conference which was set to take place in Munich from 14 - 16 December 2012 has therefore been cancelled.
The advantage of the virtual communication scenario with Online Learning facility is that new developments in the field of Neurotechnology can be updated in the website as and when they happen, instead of having to wait for the physical conference to take place. In addition, there is a substantial advantage in terms of logistical and financial considerations.
The World Association of Neurotechnology is committed to developing a portal for the dissemination of knowledge in the area of Neurotechnology. To this end we will be building an Online Learning Library of powerpoint presentations with audio track overlays and video clips, plus a series of links to associated organizations in the field. If you would like to submit a talk plus audio track or video clip, please click Contact Us to send this by email.
Chaired by Prof Michael Trimble and Prof Thomas Herdegen, the Association is devoted to bringing together the community of professionals who are developing an expertise and understanding of Neurotechnology on a global basis. It offers a forum for researchers, clinicians and industry – both manufacturers and investors – to allow sharing of knowledge and cross-fertilization of ideas for the betterment of all involved.
The World Association of Neurotechnology was initiated by an inaugural congress. The inaugural congress presented 80 speakers contributing their opinion on 5 streams: Neuro-Research, Neuro-Plasticity, Neuro-Psychiatry, Neuro-Surgery and Neuro-Oncology. The International Scientific Advisory Committee comprised over 40 eminent professionals in this field including opinion leaders: Prof M Trimble, Prof T Herdegen, Prof H Shanka-Sharma, Prof T Spinks and Prof F Farassati, all of whom led a stream at the conference.
