The 5th International Meeting on Cerebral Haemodynamic Regulation (CARNet)

13 July 2015

Chilworth Manor Hotel, Southampton

This conference is organised by the Cerebral Autoregulation Research Network (CARNet, an international multidisciplinary network including now over 100 scientists worldwide, in collaboration with the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM).

Co-sponsored by IPEM's Physiological Measurement Special Interest Group

Conference presentations on Monday 13 & Tuesday 14 July 2015 (registration fees apply)
Working meetings on Wednesday 15 July 2015 (registration free of charge)

This conference will cover the broad range of regulatory physiological mechanisms that maintain brain bloodflow at appropriate levels in health and disease, and will include physiology, clinical applications and the engineering, physics and mathematical modelling that underpins mechanisms and measurements.

Cerebral blood flow is driven by blood pressure, arterial carbon dioxide levels, neuronal activation and cerebral metabolism, intracranial pressure, vasomotion, activity of the sympathetic nervous system, posture and other determinants. While cerebral autoregulation usually refers primarily to the physiological mechanisms that maintain blood flow during changes in blood pressure, the meeting will encompasses the wider field of cerebral haemodynamic regulation, including areas such as CO2 reactivity, neurovascular coupling and intracranial pressure control.

If you are arriving by train, we recommend Southampton Airport Parkway station, as it is closer to the hotel than Southampton Central. A taxi should be around £10. If you are arriving by coach, the stop at the University of Southampton (Highfield Interchange) is closer than the central coach station. There are no taxis waiting there, but you can call/book one via (most coaches have on-board internet) – should again be around £10.


Monday 13th July: There will be a conference dinner on the evening of Monday 13th July at Chilworth Manor Hotel. The cost is £47.50 for a 3 course meal including wine and coffee. To book a place at the dinner, please email the IPEM conference team indicating any special dietary requirements, and the IPEM finance department will send you an invoice for the total amount due.

Tuesday 14th July: a dinner will be held at the nearby Hilton Hotel on Tuesday evening at a cost of £35 for two courses; if you wish to attend please let us know as soon as possible by email to; you will then be able to pay for this via credit card at the registration desk on Monday morning.
