NVRI events


NVRI are proud to showcase their work at both national and international events and meetings.

Centre for Computational Brain Research Winter Course

Professor Michael Ibbotson was invited to present at the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology as part of their winter course on Brain Intelligence and Brain Research intensive program. Michael presented to over 350 undergraduate students studying engineering and wanting to better understand the interface with neuroscience and biology. The lecture delivered by Michael was titled ‘Early visual pathway’.

Venue: Chennai, India
Date: 2-10 January 2020

Brain Function CoE Annual Meeting

LEW Carty Lions Fellow, Molis Yunzab organised a one-day Early Career Researcher workshop to commence the annual meeting program that was then followed by the AGM, members dinner and Annual Science meeting. It was a busy three day program attended also by Ali Almasi and Tenille Ryan. Michael Ibbotson and Hamish Meffin joined once their commitments with NeuroEng were complete.

Venue: Adelaide, Australia
Date: 29 November – 1 December 2019

NeuroEng Annual Meeting

Research Fellow Hamish Meffin and Professor Michael Ibbotson represented the NVRI at the 12th Australasian Workshop on Computational Neuroscience and Neural Engineering, held at the University of Adelaide. Both gave oral presentations throughout the busy two day program on research from the NVRI laboratories. Michael was also an invited panel member as part of the closing program to discuss ‘The interface between wet and dry neurosciences’.

Venue: Adelaide, Australia
Date: 29 – 30 November 2019

Society for Neuroscience (SfN) Annual Meeting

PhD students Scott Sun and Jason Jung attended their first international conference to show case their NVRI research projects. Each presented a research poster at the largest neuroscience conference in the world that attracts around 30,000 scientists annually.

Venue: Chicago, USA
Date: 19-23 October 2019

International Engineering in Medicine Conference (EMBC)

NVRI Director, Michael Ibbotson and post-doctoral fellow Wei Tong attended the 41st annual EMBC meeting. Wei was invited to give an oral presentation, ‘The effects of phase durations on the spatial responses of ganglion cells to epi and sub retinal electrical stimulation’ to a very large international audience. The team also presented four research posters at the event.

Venue: Berlin, Germany
Date: 23-27 July 2019

Computational Neuroscience (CNS) Meeting

The NVRI was represented by Hamish Meffin, Ali Almasi and Molis Yunzab who all presented research at the CNS meeting. Hamish and Ali also facilitated a one day international workshop, ‘Integrative theories of cortical function’ as part of the conference proceedings.

Venue: Barcelona, Spain
