Fifth Biennial Conference on
Resting State and Brain Connectivity

21-23 September 2016, Vienna, Austria

Following the successful previous conferences in Boston/Cambridge (Mass., USA), Magdeburg (Germany), and Milwaukee (Wisc., USA), the Fifth Biennial Conference on Resting State and Brain Connectivity will take place in Vienna (Austria) on September 21 to 23, 2016.

The Biennial Conference on Resting State and Brain Connectivity has, since its inception in 2008, been the leading conference on resting state functional connectivity MRI. Previous speakers included Peter Bandettini, Christian Beckmann, Bharat Biswal, Karl Friston, Thomas Insel, Helen Mayberg, Bruce Rosen, Kamil Ugurbil, David Van Essen, and Karl Zilles.

It is the major forum for scientific discourse and interaction on human brain connectivity. Its format offers attendees and particularly young academics great opportunities to present and discuss their own work, and to keep up to date with latest developments.

The conference is preceded by an educational workshop on 19-20 September providing the background to state of the art resting state and brain connectivity research. For the third time we now offer this intensive pre-conference workshop for those aiming to maximize their individual outcome for the main conference.

The venue of the meeting will be the University of Vienna. With a long-standing tradition of over 650 years, the University of Vienna is one of the oldest universities in Europe. It is located along the Wiener Ringstrasse, which surrounds the historical city center. For many years Austria’s capital has been the world’s most liveable city and has been ranked among the most popular student cities in the world.
