MEG North America Workshop

From MEG Core
Jump to navigation Jump to search


The MEG community worldwide is a small one, with around 150 MEG laboratories. While there is a bi-annual conference, BioMag, there is no associated professional society, and no dedicated journal. Although there are smaller professional groups for clinical MEG, there is no broader group encompassing the entirety of MEG research. The MEG North America workshop was initiated in 2016 to provide an opportunity for North American research and clinical MEG labs to gather in the hopes of fostering collaboration.

Upcoming Meetings

The workshop alternates with the biannual BioMag meeting, therefore the next MEG North America Workshop will be in 2023. Stay tuned for a formal announcement!
