ACMEGS successfully concluded its 13th Annual Meeting and the 8th Clinical MEG Course last month. The Course and Meeting were held in Las Vegas, February 5-7, 2019.
As has become typical, the meeting was well-attended, including both a number of familiar and a few new faces.
The format of this year's Clinical MEG Course was extended to include an additional half day and a total of 11.75 AMA PRA Category 1 credits™. The extended scope of the course addressed quality measures for MEG recordings and MEG normal variants and artifacts. The new course format will be continued and enriched for 2020.
The Meeting was attended by a large number of national MEG experts, and as well as guest from Marseille, France. The highlights were talks from Catherine Liégeois-Chauvel (Marseille), Andy Papanicolaou (Houston), and Yoshio Okada (Boston). Most of the 2019 presentations are available on the ACMEGS website.
The newly-created ACMEGS Legacy Awards were presented for the first time this year, honoring clinicians and scientists who significantly influenced and shaped the field of clinical MEG. The first recipients of the award were Prof. David Cohen and to Prof. John Ebersole.
The ACMEGS Board of Directors thanks all attendees of the meeting for coming to Las Vegas, and we look forward to see you next year again.
We extend our gratitude to all speakers of the MEG Course and the Meeting for their time and contributions. We hope you all will consider attending the 2020 ACMEGS Meeting and Course in New Orleans, February 4-6, 2020.
