IBMISPS is a non-profit association organization for the purpose of encouraging basic and clinical scientists who are interested or active in areas of Brain Mapping, BM, and Intra-operative Surgical Planning, ISP, to share their findings with other physicians and scientists across the disciplines (i.e. neurosurgeons, radiologists, neurologists, biotechnologists, anthropologists and neuroscientists).

The association is also intended for the purpose of promoting the public welfare through the advancement of Intra-operative Surgical Planning and Brain Mapping, by a commitment to excellence in education, and by dedication to research and scientific discovery.

The mission of the association will be achieved through a multi-disciplinary collaboration of government agencies, patient advocacy groups, educational institutions and the private sector brought together in order to address issues and problems related to Brain Mapping and Intra-operative Planning, and to implement new technologies to benefit patient care.
