About the workshop

The InBrain Workshop: Advanced Brain Imaging will be held in Ribeirão Preto, SP, Brazil, from February 13th to 15th, 2020.

The workshop aims to gather researchers, students (both at graduate and undergraduate levels) and clinical professionals working in quantitative magnetic resonance imaging in the brain, with interest in methods development and its clinical applications. The main goal of the event is to update the state of art in the related topics, facilitate the communication and collaboration of researchers and enhance the research level in the Brazilian scientific community.

The Workshop is an initiative of the InBrain Lab, which is a research group in the Department of Physics of the University of São Paulo in Ribeirão Preto. The InBrain Lab is mostly composed by Physicists and Medical Physicists in close collaboration with the Clinical Hospital of Ribeirão Preto. The InBrain Workshop is also endorsed by the International Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM), and will feature prominent speakers.

Abstract Submission

The organizing committee of the InBrain Workshop 2020 - Advanced Brain Imaging invites abstract submissions for poster and oral presentation at the workshop. Submissions must contain new, previously unpublished material. All abstracts must be submitted electronically via the InBrain Workshop Website.




Abstract Format

We recommend including the following sections: Introduction, Methods, Results, Discussion, Conclusions and References. A template is available in InBrain Workshop website. 350 words for the body of the abstract (references not included), up to 2 figures (100 words per figure captions) and up to 10 references. References must be cited in numerical order using superscript Arabic numerals (1, 2, 3…):


  1. A review was performed previously.1

  2. A review was performed previously 1,2

  3. A review was performed previously 1-4,8


At the end of the abstract, list references numerically in the order in which they were cited in the text: 


  1. Smith S, Spears D, Tokarz D, et al. Sensitive case analysis. Normal Neurol. 2024;61(7):10‐11.

  2. World Health Organization. Injury: A Leading Cause of the Global Burden of Disease, 2000. Geneva, Switzerland: World Health Organization; 2002.

Abstract Content Guidelines


  • Abstract content must not promote proprietary/commercial interests.

  • Scientific research must conform to generally accepted standards of experimental design, data collection and analysis.

  • Duplicate material is not allowed.

  • Previously submitted and rejected abstracts to another may be resubmitted.


Abstract Review Criteria


The following criteria will be considered during abstract review:


  • Innovation: advancement of knowledge, and/or improvement of capabilities.

  • Quality: The results should be substantive and not just implied. 

  • Impact: The method or data in the abstract should aim to advance or change the field in significant ways.

  • Bias: Evident bias in favor of a particular product or company is grounds for rejection. 

  • Duplication of content is grounds for rejection of all submitted abstracts.


Tips for authors
