International Conference of Cognitive Neuroscience 2020


ICON 2022 stands with Ukraine. As per the policy of University of Helsinki and Aalto University, researchers affiliated with Russian or Belarusian research institutes are not allowed to participate in ICON 2022. Researchers with primary affiliation in Ukrainian research institutes are provided free registration. Contact organizers for further information. See rules for symposium and poster presentations regarding the situation from Instructions tab. The conference will be onsite and we are hoping to provide an ICON experience as lively and interactive as it has always been. Given the ongoing pandemic, the talks will also be streamed. We will also organize a possibility to present parts of the symposium talks virtually and posters as short blitz talks, if necessary. Due to the limited resources were are not able to provide a full interactive virtual participation and the main emphasis will be on the live conference. Already paid registration fees and abstract submissions are valid also for the new dates. Registration and abstract submission for posters is open. We hope to see many of you soon!


ICON brings together researchers from diverse backgrounds, joined by their interest in studying the human brain, mind, and behavior. ICON provides a platform for the dissemination and exchange of top-level scientific findings, methods, and ideas across various areas of cognitive neuroscience, including all topics such as language, attention, decision making, and many more, with relevance both for healthy brain functioning and for neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders. Core technologies for this audience include both brain imaging (EEG, MEG, MRI) and stimulation (TMS, TACS, TDCS) approaches, together with psychometrics and cognitive testing. Join us to ICON 2022 to enjoy the excellence of science, to visit the beautiful city of Helsinki located by the Baltic sea and to experience the nightless summer nights of Finland.
