[Comp-neuro] Call for Papers: Neurotechnix 2013: Special Session on Brain-computer Interfaces and Brain Stimulation for Neurorehabilitation

Dear colleagues,

we are pleased to announce the Special Session

Brain-computer Interfaces and Brain Stimulation for Neurorehabilitation
(BrainRehab 2013)

as part of the

Neurotechnix 2013
International Congress on Neurotechnology, Electronics and Informatics

held from 18-20th September 2013 in Vilamoura, Portugal.

Important dates:

Complete Paper/Extended Abstract Submission: June 17, 2013

Authors Notification: July 4, 2013

Final Submission and Registration: July 18, 2013


Scope of the session:

Brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) and brain stimulation are unique methods for neurorehabilitation because they allow a direct interaction with the patient's brain. BCIs enable biofeedback approaches for paralyzed patients, while brain stimulation techniques modulate the activity of neuronal circuits to support brain reorganization. However, towards their application as reliable treatment options, important challenges such as a deeper understanding of neural (re-)organization, the design of suitable feedback and stimulation paradigms, the adaptation to individual patients and the transfer from the laboratory to clinical settings need to be faced.

We invite neuroscientists, engineers and clinicians to submit abstracts and papers discussing recent developments and future trends in the fields of neurostimulation and BCIs with a focus on their application towards the rehabilitation of patients.

- Brain-computer interfaces
- Decoding of brain activity
- Neurofeedback
- Brain stimulation
- Closed-loop stimulation systems
- Chronic pain
- Stroke, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and other neurodegenerative diseases



All accepted Extended Abstracts will be published in the Book of Abstracts of the congress and on CD-ROM support, without ISBN. All accepted Complete Papers (full and short) will be published in the Congress Proceedings, under an ISBN reference, on paper and on CD-ROM support. All papers presented at the congress venue will also be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef. The Congress Proceedings will be submitted to appropriate indexes for indexation.
