The ISMRM submission deadlines are behind us! From all the Benelux organizing committee members, we would like to sincerely thank you for all your submissions and we can’t wait to hear more about them at the upcoming meeting at Autoworld Brussels on the 24th March 2023. Now, we have some news we would like to share with you.

As it is already a small tradition, we will again have our ISMRM Benelux challenge. This year, however, you are invited to participate in two different categories: The Best MRI Comic and The Best Lay Summary. In each category, the prize will be a travel grant of €750 for the ISMRM global annual meeting in Toronto. The runner-uppers will receive a free dinner ticket for the ISMRM Benelux meeting. The deadline for submission to both challenges is the 2nd January 2023 23:59 CET. Further details and guidelines about the challenges can be found here on our website. So, make sure to channel your creativity and we will be very much looking forward to receiving your submissions!

On a related note, the challenge submissions will need to be assessed independently. As a result, we would like to invite you to become a challenge reviewer. The reviewers will receive the challenge submissions by the 9th January 2023 and will be given until 1st February 2023 to provide their assessment. To sign up for the challenge reviewer position, please fill in the following registration form.
