Message from the President



Alexandre C. Amaral, M.D.

President of the event and President
of the Brazilian Society of Neuromodulation.


It is with great pleasure that we invite everyone to participate in the Interim Meeting 2018- Working Toward the Future, which will be held from in August 8 to 11th, 2018, at the Windsor Barra hotel, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This is the first time that an International Neuromodulation such as this is hosted throughout Latin America.

The Brazilian Society of Neuromodulation (SBNM), in conjunction with the International Neuromodulation Society (INS) carries out our first official event Interim Meeting 2018-Working Toward the Future, bringing the most important world leaders, acting in research and practice of the most various branches where the neuromodulation is applied.

We have speakers from Latin America, Europe, Asia and the United States, which will lead to discussions about the state of the art in Neuromodulation.

The Scientific Committee is composed of members of the highest national and international relevance, with the ultimate goal of joining colleagues who are either trying to start, already starting or in an advanced level in the use of the methods of neuromodulation.

Focused on promoting Neuromodulation as a weapon capable of improving the quality of life of human beings, we struggled to assemble a large and comprehensive event without forgetting non-invasive neuromodulation techniques.

We look forward to meeting you in Rio de Janeiro, the “Wondeful City”, to carry on a new page in the history of neuromodulation in Latin America.

Be welcome!!
