In the light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the organising committee for the 12th International Newborn Brain Conference has reluctantly decided to cancel the event on the 17th to the 19th of September 2020 in Kildare, Ireland.

While this is a great disappointment to us all, and we were really looking forward to this exciting event, we had no choice in the circumstances. We want to take this opportunity to thank you for your support for this conference and look forward to seeing you in Florida for the next Newborn Brain Conference in Spring 2022.

Thank you for your understanding and please stay safe.

On behalf of the organising committee


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.
