Please continue to register and submit extracts for Biomag 2020.

The welfare of delegates, students and staff is our primary concern. Rest assured, we’re closely monitoring the advice from FCO, WHO, PHE and local government in relation to Covid-19, and we hope to confirm plans for the conference by mid-April.

  • If travel restrictions due to Covid-19 prevent you from attending, your delegate place will be refunded in full, up to 7 days before the start date.
  • If the Chair of Biomag 2020 or the University of Birmingham cancel or postpone the event, you will be offered a full refund, or re-registration for the new dates.

Remote participation is also under discussion, to allow as many delegates as possible to join Biomag 2020 online.

The BIOMAG meeting is a biennial international conference with a focus on biomagnetism. The topic of biomagnetism includes the measurement of magnetic signals from the human body, such as brain activity, as well as the development of new magnetic sensors. The biomagnetism community is highly productive and generates thousands of high-profile publications a year on cognitive neuroscience, clinical neuroscience and cardiology, as well as the development of software tools and new sensor technology.

The United Kingdom (UK) has a strong community on biomagnetism with a focus on magnetoencephalography (MEG). There are 10 MEG sites in the United Kingdom, two in Birmingham alone. Seminal work on biomagnetism was done at Aston University in the centre of Birmingham. The UK biomagnetism community is vibrant and collaborative, making the UK an ideal setting for hosting the BIOMAG2020 meeting.

Birmingham is the second largest city in the UK, with a rich cultural life. The city is located in the heart of England, providing excellent opportunities to visit the wider area. The meeting itself will be hosted on the campus of the University of Birmingham. This historic red-brick university has excellent conference facilities, and allows for the meeting to be held in an academic setting.

Sincerely,

Prof. Ole Jensen Centre for Human Brain Health, University of Birmingham and Chair BIOMAG2020

Dr. Matthew J. Brookes Associate Professor, School of Physics & Astronomy, University of Nottingham and Co-Chair BIOMAG 2020
