IPEG 2008, Rouffach

 

WELCOME TO THE 15TH IPEG MEETING ROUFFACH , FRANCE

On behalf of the International Pharmaco-EEG Society (IPEG), I am pleased to invite you to the 15th biennial IPEG congress, which will take place in Rouffach, France on September 24-27, 2008.

The IPEG society is largely involved in promoting the use of electroencephalography (EEG) and related techniques in drug research from animal to clinic. Since the first EEG publications in the beginning of the 20th century, EEG discipline has known a continuous evolution. The most recent innovations of EEG are its use in multi-modal approaches to improve our knowledge of brain activity.
The aim of the present IPEG meeting is to discuss the latest researches and issues regarding the use of EEG and EEG-related techniques in neurology, psychiatry, anesthesia and analgesia in a drug development perspective. Since interdisciplinary and international exchange can lead to a fruitful emergence of new ideas, experts and professionals from different countries and different disciplines across academia and industry will participate in this meeting.
As previous IPEG congresses, the IPEG symposia will start with training courses designed to provide basic and advanced information on the different aspects of electroencephalography (EEG) / magnetoencephalography (MEG) research: principles, recording procedures, experimental designs, data analysis and interpretation, with applications in different fields of neuropsychopharmacology.
We encourage all researchers, physicians and other professionals working with EEG to contribute to the success of the meeting by submitting abstracts for oral or poster presentations.

Rouffach is an ancient charming and quiet city located in Alsace, close to the German border in the north-east of France. Alsace is famous for its wines, storks and old preserved half-timbering houses; Rouffach is located on the Wine Route, 18 kilometers from Colmar, and has a stork reintroduction center. Autumn is a particular pleasant season to enjoy the lovely colors of the vineyard.
The venue of the meeting is the Hospital of Rouffach, which accommodates us with all the facilities necessary for training courses, symposia and poster sessions. The hospital was built in the beginning of the 20th century and is nestled in a beautiful park.
A number of transport facilities will be available between Basel/Mulhouse airport and Rouffach. You will find more details on the “accommodation” page of the website.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Hospital of Rouffach in September 2008. We hope that you will benefit greatly from the scientific program, exchange information and ideas with new acquaintances and enjoy your stay in Alsace.
