The Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) accredits the OHBM. Since our accreditation is important to us, we plan activities that meet the ACCME’s expectations for our practice of continuing medical education.

Transportation Guide:


The transfer time from the Airport to the hotel is approximately 20 – 25 minutes. The fee from the airport to the Sheraton will vary based on traffic (as the rates are metered), but are typically around $45-50. On Tuesday the 19th, there is a taxi flat rate from the Hotel to the airport. When you approach the taxi at the Hotel (the doorman will call one over for you), make sure to ask for the “flat rate” to the airport. This rate is $40.00 regardless of how long it takes with traffic. This is a great option if you just need to get to the airport quickly. Be sure to tell them you want the flat rate right when you get in. Depending on traffic, it should take about 20-25 minutes to get there by taxi.


Link Light Rail

The cost is $2.75 each way. It takes approximately 45 minutes to from the airport to downtown on this train. A train leaves every 10 minutes. The train will drop you off in the tunnel under Nordstom (located on 5th & Pine). It is only a two block walk to the Sheraton Hotel from the tunnel.


Downtown Airporter

This is a shared shuttle service, operated by “Shuttle Express” from the airport to downtown Hotels. The cost is $18 per person. A shuttle leaves the Hotel every 30 minutes. Once it gets into the downtown area, it makes stops at multiple hotels. It takes about 45 minutes or so to get there.


Shuttle Express

Downtown Airporter (DTA) and Scheduled Service - $18 per person, $5 roundtrip discount – Kids 17 and under ride free, one for each paying adult. Serves the major downtown hotels.

Bellevue Scheduled Hotel Service offers $19 per person one-way fare between SeaTac Airport and these select Bellevue Hotels: Coast Hotel, Hilton, Hyatt Regency, Westin, Sheraton, Red Lion, Silver Cloud, Residence Inn, Courtyard by Marriott, and the Meydenbauer Center. Kids 17 and under ride free, one for each paying adult.

Event Overview
Welcome message:

We are please to invite you to the 19th Annual Meeting of the Organization for Human Brain Mapping to be held June 16-20, 2013 at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle, WA, USA.

OHBM draws attendance between 2500-3000 attendees each year. Membership in the organization is growing and the meeting continues to be one of the most significant neuroimaging conferences for those in the field. The OHBM meeting boasts a combination of exciting scientific programs and social events, all tailored to the city the meeting is being held.

Unique, innovative and full of surprises, Seattle is a diverse city with a laid-back approach to life. To experience Seattle is to experience the quiet confidence and balanced urban and natural lifestyles. Seattle is a world-class metropolis with a fast-paced city life within wild, beautiful natural surroundings.

Thematology / Presented Topics:

The Annual Meeting will have an extensive program of local and international speakers, covering a wide range of topics and issues, specifically addressing the field of human functional neuroimaging and its movement into the scientific mainstream. The focus will be to gather scientists and medical professionals using modern, functional, brain mapping techniques such as PET, SPECT, fMRI, EEG, MEG, optical imaging and neuroanatomical tools for assessment of the functioning of the human brain. It will include the applications of these techniques to study brain implementation of sensory and motor systems, vision, attention, memory and language in normal and pathological states.

Courses / Workshops within the event

2013 FSL & FreeSurfer Course
June 10-14, 2013
Redmond Marriott Hotel, Redmond WA, USA

We are pleased to announce the 2013 FSL & FreeSurfer Course, to be held in Redmond, Washington, USA (June 10-14). It will run immediately before the HBM conference, which will be in Seattle, Washington, USA. The intensive course covers both the theory and practice of functional and structural brain image analysis. Background concepts and the practicalities of analyses are taught in detailed lectures; these are interleaved with hands-on practical sessions where attendees learn how to carry out analysis for themselves on real data, with one computer provided for every two attendees (with attendees to work in pairs). After completing the course, attendees should be able to analyse their own FMRI and MRI data sets.


Brain Connectivity Workshop (BCW)
June 12 - 14, 2013
University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada

Brain Connectivity Workshop (BCW) has been going for 12 years now ( and is the major forum to discuss the broad and complex issues relating to brain connectivity. A unique character of the workshop is the format that emphasizes discussion over extensive presentations. Following the tradition of this workshop series, each of the invited speakers in the main workshop are requested to limit their presentation to 15 minutes and subsequently lead a thirty minute discussion focused on that topic. This format has been successful since the meeting's inception, and has always resulted in extensive and invigorating debate.

As an essential part of BCW’2013, the one day educational course will also occur: Seven leading experts in this field will deliver introductory lectures on different topics related to Brain Connectivity. In previous years, most of the registrants of the main workshop also attend and contribute to questions in the educational course.
This year we will focus on connectivity in attention, awareness and consciousness. Brain function is dependent on the interactions between specialized regions of cortex that process information within local and global networks. Investigations of connections between neuronal structures and measurements of brain activity in vivo have given rise to concepts that have been useful for understanding brain mechanisms and plasticity. These concepts are just now being extended to attention and awareness, with the understanding that many overt behavioral effects may be better actualized at the level of brain network dynamics.


Brainstorm training course: Introduction to MEG and EEG analysis
June 21, 2013, 8am to 6pm
University of Washington

Brainstorm is a collaborative, open-source application dedicated to MEG and EEG data visualization and processing. This course includes an introduction to the analysis methods and intensive hands-on practice. Attendees bring their own laptops and go through most software features in a step-by-step, interactive way, with the assistance of Brainstorm experts.

Pattern Recognition in NeuroImaging (PRNI 2013)
June 22-24, 2013
University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA, USA

This 3rd international workshop focuses on multivariate statistical image analysis and machine learning methods for analyzing brain images, and their applications in studies aiming to understand complex functional and structural imaging patterns of the brain in normal and diseased populations.
