We invite you to participate in the 15th International Conference on Brain Energy Metabolism (ICBEM), entitled "Brain Bioenergetics in Aging - Neurovascular and Neurometabolic Coupling and Fuels". The conference will be held at the Grand Hotel Union in Ljubljana, Slovenia, on September 17-21, 2024.

This conference brings together leading researchers, clinicians, young scientists, and students interested in brain energy metabolism. Lectures and discussions will cover latest developments in research related to neurometabolic and neurovascular coupling in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and normal brain, emerging in vivo imaging modalities for studying how brain bioenergetics relates to diverse brain functions, mechanisms of mitochondrial and metabolic resilience, astrocyte and microglial support, and alterations in injured and aging brains. We will also discuss the role of alternative fuels and transport of fuels to support cognition and how these processes may fail, and emerging therapies for Alzheimer's disease.

These meetings provide a forum for lively, interactive and informative discussions that often lead to new collaborations. More than one-third of the meeting time is devoted to discussion which continues after the talks and poster sessions and often during free time. Student and fellow participation is strongly encouraged, and travel awards for a limited number of young scientists will be available. The conference is open to all interested scientists with registration on a first-come basis until reaching a limit of 118 conferees. Registration covers most meals and meeting expenses, including a farewell dinner. 

Inquiries can be made via the conference email: icbem@brainenergymetabolism.org.
