We are happy to announce that the next conference on “Criticality in Neural Systems 2022: Collective Behavior, Synchronization, and Complexity” will take place at the Porter Neuroscience Research Center (National Institute of Health, Bethesda, MD, USA) from Nov. 7 – 9th, 2022. 

Keeping line with previous editions of the Brain Criticality conferences series, this conference will present the latest experimental and theoretical advancements in the study of critical phenomena in brain activity and their functional relevance. While preserving emphasis on criticality, this edition will feature as well communications about general collective behavior and dynamic complexity in the brain (and other biological systems). More info here >

The conference will be held in a hybrid format, both in presence at NIH Bethesda (more about the venue here) and via Zoom. Presentations by the invited speakers, with ample time for discussions, including with online participants, will be complemented by a poster session (in presence and online) and by a selection of contributed spotlight presentations.

A detailed program schedule will follow shortly. Here a list of our confirmed speakers.
