June 25th - June 29th (This is a Thursday to Monday meeting pattern)

The OHBM Annual Meeting is the place to learn about the latest international research across modalities in human brain mapping. It is an opportunity for you to have one-on-one discussions with experts in the field and connect with your peers from all over the world. At the educational sessions, junior and senior scientists of various backgrounds teach about the most current and ground-breaking developments in the field, including machine learning techniques, high resolution imaging and most recently also open science methods. The meeting is held every June at stunning locations alternating between North America, Europe and the Asia-Pacific region. The 2020 meeting will be held at the beautiful Palais des congress de Montreal.

Montréal is a beautiful city renowned for its international flavor and inspiring diversity. Located on an island in the St. Lawrence River, it is home to approximately 1.6 million residents and the largest bilingual workforce in Canada. It is the largest French-speaking city outside France and a perfect blend of European energy and North American efficiency. One of the world’s top convention cities and a certified destination for sustainable events, there’s something for everyone here. You’ll find a friendly population, world-famous gastronomy, and an atmosphere of celebration! We look forward to welcoming you to OHBM 2020 in Montreal - check out the promotional video
