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.
The 2022 edition of NICIS-Europe is titled « Networks, Neuroscience and Intensive Care ». It will be held on June the 30th and July the 1st, online.
NICIS-Europe 2022 builds on the success of previous editions, which were devoted to “Neuroscience of prognostication in the ICU” (2019), “The Neurosciences of critical illness and acute CNS infection” (2018); « Critical illness: Ageing, frailty and resilience » (2017), « Neuro-inflammation in Critical illness: From brain signalling to brain insult » (2016), « Neuroscience of repair, regeneration and recovery from critical illness » (2015), and « Neurobiology of stress » (2014). NICIS was a partner of EURO-NEURO congress in 2021.
The NICIS 2022 edition is to provide a didactical conferences on the theme of cellular and molecular networks of the brain. Additionally, it will address dysfunction of brain networks and body-brain networks in disorders of consciousness and critical illness.
NICIS 2022 speakers include thought leaders in cellular and molecular biology, , neurophysiology, neuroimaging and brain mapping, and advanced clinical trial design. The conference is designed for an interdisciplinary audience of clinicians and investigators working in neuroscience and intensive care medicine. This will be a unique opportunity to have an interactive and lively discussion between multiple content-experts with contrasting perspectives.
We would like to acknowledge support from the Société Française d’Anesthésie-Réanimation (SFAR), the Association des Neuro-Anesthésistes de langue Française (ANARLF), the International Society of International Symposium of Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine (ISICEM), the Société de Réanimation de Langue Française (SRLF) and the Institut Pasteur for their support or endorsement. Our special thanks go to the University of Versailles, the Paris-Descartes University, The Pierre Marie Curie University, Columbia University and Johns Hopkins University.
We look forward to welcoming you in June for NICIS-2022 !
