ICHR Chicago satellite
International Consortium on Hallucination Research – North American Satellite
University of Illinois, Chicago
25-27 September 2016

Registration is now open for the 2016 Chicago satellite meeting of the International Consortium on Hallucination Research, which will take place at the University of Illinois Medical Campus, from 25 September to 28 September 2016. Hosted by Sarah Keedy (University of Chicago), Cherise Rosen (University of Illinois at Chicago), and Nev Jones (Felton Institute), this inaugural North American gathering of the interdisciplinary ICHR will feature leading researchers, clinicians, and thinkers from Europe, the United Kingdom, Australia, and the US, with parallel research and clinical tracks.

Historically, researchers and clinicians from the US have been minimally represented in the ICHR and one goal of this satellite meeting is to forge stronger links between European, British, Australian and North American researchers and clinicians, and to encourage and support interdisciplinary, translation domain-focused research and practice in the US.
