The Organization for Human Brain Mapping (OHBM) is excited to launch an engaging and interactive new approach to the virtual 2021 OHBM Annual Meeting and Educational Courses! The 27th Annual Meeting and Educational Courses of OHBM 2021 will take place over two separate one-week periods beginning on Sunday, May 30th – Friday, June 4th with the Educational Courses and followed by the Annual Meeting to be held Monday, June 21st – Friday, June 25th. You won’t want to miss what is sure to be a memorable and “unconventional convention” full of cutting edge science, education, and networking like you’ve never experienced it before, all put in motion for the human brain mapping community.
We will continue to update the website as we finalize details for OHBM 2021. If you have questions in the meantime, please contact the OHBM Executive Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
"Sixth time attending and OHBM 2017 was by far the best one yet! Thanks for the great conversations everyone, can’t wait ’til next year!"

Q: Why was the decision made to cancel the 2021 Annual Meeting in Seoul, Korea and offer the meeting in a new virtual format?
A: The health and safety of our meeting participants, faculty members, volunteers, industry partners, vendors and staff is our priority. For weeks, we closely monitored updates from the World Health Organization (WHO) on the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and have worked with all stakeholders involved exploring the possible options. Unfortunately, due to escalating international travel and public gathering restrictions, a physical meeting of our international colleagues and partners in Korea was no longer possible. OHBM remains devoted to bringing together the brain mapping community to learn the latest from one another, and to advance research. With this in mind, OHBM decided to bring the world meeting to each of you in the form of a virtual experience – the 27th Annual Meeting and Educational Courses of the Organization for Human Brain Mapping.
Q: Who is considered a Student Member?
A: A student member is a full-time student working towards a graduate degree (MS, PhD, or MD degree) or an individual who is no more than four years out after completing such a degree.
Q: Who is eligible for Developing Country Reduced Registration rate?
A: OHBM provides an opportunity for current members who reside and work in countries ranking low income and lower income on The World Bank's country income classification list to apply for reduced registration rates (a 50% discount on the General Annual Meeting and Educational Courses registration fees) for OHBM 2021. Please Submit Your Application here.
Q: Can I attend the Educational Courses without having to register for the full Annual Meeting?
A: Typically registration for the Annual Meeting is a requirement in order to register for Educational Courses. For this year, attendees are able to register for the Educational Courses without registering for the Annual Meeting as they were offered as two separate events with separate log in credentials required to participate.
Q: Does OHBM have a Code of Conduct?
A: Yes, please visit the OHBM website or click here to review the OHBM Code of Conduct.
