Networks, Neuroscience, and Intensive Care.
This year’s theme will bring together fundamental thinkers of network theory, scientists working on modeling the span from large scale connectome models to molecular networks, as well as translational researchers investigating the relationship between the brain, heart, and lung. This work is discussed as it relates to and provides direction for our understanding of acute critical illness.
The vision of Neurosciences in Intensive Care International Symposium (NICIS) is to accelerate transformative advances in the care and science of patients with critical illness and neurological injury.
Participants are clinicians and scientists who have a common aspiration to translate discoveries in the neurosciences into better patient-centered outcomes.
NICIS has occurred annually in Paris in June since 2014 (due to the COVID-19 pandemic there was no conferences in 2020 and 2021). Additionally, two NICIS conferences were held in Washington DC in March 2017 and 2018.
We would like to acknowledge support from the Société Française d’Anesthésie-Réanimation (SFAR), the Association des Neuro-Anesthésistes de langue Française (ANARLF), the Société de Réanimation de Langue Française (SRLF) and the Institut Pasteur for their support or endorsement. Our special thanks go to University of Versailles-Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, University of Paris, Sorbonne University, Columbia University and Johns Hopkins University.
We are excited to bring back NICIS as a virtual conference in 2022.
