The 12th International Newborn Brain Conference formally known as (International Conference on Brain Monitoring and Neuroprotection in the Newborn) is a conference with both an international audience and faculty. This conference provides a state of the art forum for the most current and important research and clinical practice in Newborn Brain Monitoring and Neuroprotection. The conference is run over a three day period with practical workshops taking place on the first day of the conference allowing for teaching and learning delivery of both current clinical practice in this area but also implementation of novel and emerging research driven practices. Given the high international standing of the faculty a single track conference format is used so that attendees can attend all presentations.
