The OHBM Annual Meeting is a cutting edge, must-see and be-seen event for professionals who want to keep abreast of industry changes, new technologies and fresh ideas. The meeting boasts a combination of exciting scientific programs and social events, all tailored to the city the meeting is being held.
Membership in the organization is growing and the meeting continues to be one of the most significant neuroimaging conferences for those in the field.
Why should you attend? See what some of our 2015 attendees had to say about their experience:
- I discovered two new clinical ways to assess patient disability and that is worth its weight in gold.
- I was a beginning neuroimager last year, which was the first year I attended OHBM. Since that first meeting I have learned a number of techniques and trends in the field that I apply regularly to my research.
- Learning about the updates to LONI pipeline especially is a game changer for us. Without that poster session we would not have known how far that project has come in the last 2 years and we might still be trying to duplicate their efforts!
- Seeing other people's work in the same area as you're in, makes you look differently at your own work: method-wise and theory-wise. It's fun to see and hear other people's perspective on things. Besides information concerning my own research, it's fun to learn new things on completely different topics.
- I connected with many people who are working on the same types of technical issues (e.g., registration to template when there's a cavity or other brain abnormality; MS lesion segmentation) and that was by far the most helpful.
Situated along the banks of Lake Geneva at the foot of the Alps, Geneva is the second largest city in Switzerland behind Zurich and the most international city in Europe with over 40% of its population coming from outside Switzerland. The main industries are banking, inter- and non-governmental administration, technology, and tourism. Geneva prides itself as being one of the most beautiful and cultured cities in the world, combining the splendors of nature with a rich palette of historic and architectural offerings. As well, the city is a major gateway to the Alps for outdoor enthusiasts year round.
Geneva has a rich history that dates back more than 4000 years and continues to influence the development of the city today. Evidence of Geneva’s past is preserved throughout the city in its many museums, monuments and architectural treasures.
