The Australian chapter of the Organization of Human Brain Mapping (OHBM) was launched in 2018 to identify out collective strengths and integrate our innovative brain imaging research.

The meeting will be held across two days (Thursday 17th and Friday 18th October 2019) with a conference dinner held on Thursday night at the beautiful Merewether Surfhouse. An exciting workshop will also be held on Wednesday 16 October. The program has been coordinated to allow interstate arrivals and departures on the first and final day of the meeting.
