Technologies for Neural Engineering
Neural Engineering is an emerging core research area at the border of neurosciences and engineering. Recent technological developments have been used to improve patients’ quality of life for different pathologies. These development include for example Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCIs), providing a means of communication for severely paralysed people, or even neural implant, providing a new paradigm to address neurological diseases and rehabilitation. This special session aims at highlighting the novel engineering innovations for neural engineering and researches deepening knowledge of brain function.
Researchers are hereby invited to submit a full paper (5-6 pages) detailing their research, or a short paper (max 4 pages) describing their work-in-progress. All submitted papers will be subject to peer reviewing by at least two reviewers for technical merit, significance and relevance to the topics. Further information is available from the CEEC 2016 website http://www.ceec.uk. Submission implies the willingness of at least one author per paper to register, attend the conference and present the paper. Proceedings will be published on IEEE Xplore. Authors of selected articles will be invited to submit an extended version to a Special Issue of the Computers journal (http://www.mdpi.com/journal/computers/special_issues/ceec_2016).
This special session welcomes submission on (but not limited to) the following topics:
- Brain-Computer Interfaces
