Since 2002, the Foundation has co-sponsored the Neural Hydrodynamics Symposium, a conference for researchers and clinicians. The Symposium focuses on the causes, diagnosis and management of disorders caused by altered or elevated intracranial pressure including chronic intracranial hypertension (idiopathic and secondary), Chiari malformation, syringomyelia and hydrocephalus. The meeting also serves as a forum where scientists from different disciplines can present current research and exchange ideas for future research.

IHRF also sponsors a conference for patients, with an emphasis on patient education and current research. Read highlights from the 2008 IHRF Patient Conference, published in the journal Cerebrospinal Fluid Research.
