The Alpine brain Imaging meeting (ABIM) is an international scientific meeting for neuroscientists, clinicians, neuropsychologists, computational scientists and all imaging passionate.
It hosts over 150 people from all over the world each year and features 7 renewed invited speakers, 15 selected speakers, and over 70 posters.
Topics span cognitive and sensory functions, brain diseases, language, new methods and more!
Mornings are free to allow winter activities on the marvelous Swiss Alps.
Intense scientific afternoons then follow!
Lots of social and convivial networking events are planned (aperos, social dinner, games and singing).

Once again, we have put together an exciting scientific program featuring:
