Centre for Neuroimaging Techniques


EventsSeminar and Workshop Programme


The Centre organises regular events, including an annual series of monthly seminars:

WhatThe CNT normally holds monthly seminars and workshops.
WhoThe seminars will be given by distinguished speakers from within UCL and from other institutions.
How organisedThe workshops will be thematically organized, and will provide an opportunity for researchers within UCL working on closely related topics to exchange ideas and insights.
RefreshmentsRefreshments will be provided after the seminar, giving the opportunity for discussion with the speaker.
ExtraIn addition, an annual one-day March or July Workshop will be held, to which internationally-known external speakers will be invited, as well as presentations and posters from local contributors.

This Workshop will be held in suitable UCL premises, and is intended to allow maximal opportunity for development of collaborative projects.
When and whereSeminars: the monthly seminars normally take place on the first Thursday of each month at 16:00pm in the 4th Floor Seminar Room of the Functional Imaging Laboratory (FIL), 12 Queen Square.
 Workshops:the workshops take place at 16:00 also on Thursdays, in the 4th Floor Seminar Room of the Functional Imaging Laboratory (FIL), 12 Queen Square.
Who can attendAll welcome. Free admission, no need to register in advance.
