The European Winter Conference on Brain Research (EWCBR) has a long and successful history. First organized in 1981 by Stylianos Nicolaïdis together with colleagues and friends, the conference was intended to be the European counterpart of the by then already popular winter conferences in North America. The concept of the conference is to combine excellent science focused on different topics of neuroscience with the pleasures of winter sport activities among friends and colleagues. As already the old Greek knew: “A sane spirit in a sane body”.

Since 2013, the EWCBR has teamed up with the European Brain and Behaviour Society (EBBS,, the oldest international neuroscience society of the world. The combined effort of both organizations is now even more ensuring an exciting and top-of-the-art program.

Given that sensory immersion interfaces are increasingly targeting the peripheral nervous system and the central nervous system directly, and the first such commercial interfaces have been available for a couple of years now, any attempt to work on increaing immersion and/or embodiment in a virtual environment is sure to cross paths with such neurological work sooner rather than later.
