ABOUT THIS EVENT

NICIS-America is a two-day conference that brings together scientific investigators, entrepreneurs, partners from industry, and clinicians who share the goal of translating discoveries in neuroscience into effective patient-centered treatments. Speakers include thought leaders in neurology, neuroscience, intensive care, neurophysiologic monitoring, neuroimaging, brain mapping, statistical modeling, predictive analytics, advanced clinical trial design, knowledge transfer, and technology development. The 2018 conference will include cutting-edge research on Coma and Consciousness in Medicine. The conference speakers include thought leaders in molecular biology and genetics, proteomics, neurophysiologic monitoring and analysis, brain mapping, molecular imaging, statistical modeling, machine learning, predictive analytics, and advanced clinical trial design. The conference is designed for an interdisciplinary and multiprofessional audience of people working in neurological injury, critical care and stroke. This includes basic and translational scientists, neuroscientists, intensivists, neurointensivists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, physiatrists, neuroanesthesiologists, neuroradiologists, psychiatrists, and neuropsychologists.

THE VISION

The Neuroscience in Intensive Care International Symposium in America (NICIS-America) builds on a highly successful conference and networking event held annually in Paris since 2010 (www.nicis.fr). The vision of NICIS is to provide a forum that will promote transformative advances in the care and science of patients with critical neurological illness and injury.

Speakers include leading investigators in neurology, neuroscience, intensive care, neurophysiologic monitoring, neuroimaging, brain mapping, statistical modeling, predictive analytics, and clinical trial design.

THIS YEAR'S THEME

This year's symposium is devoted to the theme of Coma and Consciousness in Medicine. Consciousness is an emergent property seen in complex systems. The study of human consciousness cuts across disciplines and endeavors to include clinical medicine, psychology and the cognitive neurosciences, ethics, literature and philosophy. Changes in the level of consciousness are observed across the health spectrum, in physiological phenomena such as sleep, during sedation and anesthesia, and in pathological states such as seizures, traumatic brain injury, stroke, and severe physiological or metabolic imbalances affecting neuronal function.
