Biennial BrainTech International Conference Opens In Tel Aviv Next Month
The 4th International Brain Technology Conference, BrainTech 2019, is set to take place in Tel Aviv next month, gathering top researchers, clinicians, investors, and industry executives focused on brain research and brain technologies for the biennial, two-day event.
The conference, titled “Minding the Future,” will take place March 4-5, 2019 at the InterContinental David hotel, and will focus on a number of key themes: neuro-wellness, digital brain health and therapeutics, brain and machine learning/AI, emerging therapies and recent developments in brain stimulation and neuromodulation, and clinicians’ roles in brain-tech innovation.
Speakers at the event will include Dr. Moran Cerf, a neuroscientist and business professor at the Kellogg School of Management and the neuroscience program at Northwestern University, Professor Michal Beeri, a world-recognized researcher of Alzheimer’s disease and the director of the Joseph Sagol Neuroscience Center at the Sheba Medical Center in Israel, Dr. David Ben Shimol, the head of health technologies research at Google, and Aziz Kaddan, the CEO of brain-tech startup Myndlift, among many others.
Alongside fireside chats, lectures, and panel discussions, Braintech 2019 will also feature a startup pavilion and innovative brain technology exhibition, a startup competition, and networking and collaboration opportunities.
The conference will have a dedicated app for a truly interactive experience, enabling participation in live sessions, scheduling one-on-one meetings with delegates, speakers and exhibitors, and receiving recommendations on people to meet based on mutual interests.
Over the course of the event, leading BrainTech 2019 partner Joy Ventures will curate several sessions dedicated to neuro-wellness, an emerging field focused on emotional wellbeing and resilience.
One of the sessions, “Neurowellness: Exploring Science, Technology, and the Consumer,” scheduled for the second day of the event, will explore the science behind emotional wellbeing, showcase the latest technologies in the field and discuss how these technologies will reach the individual consumer to enhance our lives.
Joy Ventures, a privately funded investment organization, promotes innovation in the neuro-wellness space by supporting entrepreneurs, scientific research, and an interdisciplinary community of thinkers dedicated to harnessing technology and science to create consumer products that help people lead happier lives.
The BrainTech conference was last held in 2017 when it hosted over 750 attendees from the brain-tech ecosystem.
