Join us for a day of talks and posters from internal and external speakers, covering varied themes in neurotechnology.

The event will take place in-person at Imperial College London, Royal School of Mines Building, South Kensington Campus. Talk sessions will also be broadcast via Microsoft Teams for those who cannot attend in-person.

We encourage Imperial College students to submit a poster to present at the lunchtime poster session.  A £200 prize will be awarded for the best poster, with a runner-up prize of £100. To submit a poster, you must register to allocate your place and give details of your poster by 10AM on Monday 4th July, and contact Kate Hobson with any questions.
