2022 INS Annual Meeting
Montreal, Canada + Virtual
November 2-4, 2022

Annual Meeting 2022

The 2022 INS Annual Meeting was a hybrid event with opportunities to participate online as well as in-person at the Institut de recherches cliniques de Montréal (IRCM) in Montreal, Canada. The program — built around the theme 'Bringing Neuroethics to Life Throughout Patient Care, Research, and Policy' — included sessions addressing prevention; diagnosis; emerging therapies, technologies, and research; and neurorecovery and end of life.



Recordings – Recordings of panels sessions and discussions will be available to all attendees and INS members a few weeks after the meeting. Research presentation sessions will not be available, but you can can access talks that were pre-recorded or associated slides on the research webpage.

Research – Posters, slides, and recorded talks are viewable on the research webpage. These will be available for a few more weeks — or only as long as allowed by the investigators.

Program – The theme, sessions, and networking activities developed by the Program Committee, led by co-chairs Eric Racine, Jayashree Dasgupta and Michael Young. The schedule provides a complete agenda of activities that took place on November 2-4, 2022.

Photos – We will have a selection of photos to share from staff, attendees, and our IRCM partners. If you have any photos to share, email them to Robert Beets <[email protected]>.

Gather – We had a virtual Gather space set up for all in-person attendees and virtual participants to connect remotely and engage in organic conversations with colleagues from around the world.

Promotion – Thanks to the members of our Ambassador Committee for promoting the meeting!
