We hereby invite contributions to this first public HIVE workshop* *(Barcelona,
June 11th 2010). Contributions must be of a high scientific level, and
typically would describe, attempt to understand, or engineer brain
stimulation phenomena as well as clinical applications. *The deadline for
submission of abstracts is May 1**st** 2010*.

Please visit HIVE2010 <http://www.hive-eu.org/hive2010/home> for more
information.

The HIVE <http://www.hive-eu.org/> project is an ongoing 4-year
multidisciplinary European project. The project is hosting an open workshop
to all participants working in this field in order to enhance discussion and
include presentations on the most current research. All researchers are
kindly asked to submit their latest research results to this workshop.

________________________________________________

The workshop is a dedicated satellite meeting to the international Human
Brain Mapping conference<http://www.humanbrainmapping.org/i4a/pages/index.cfm?pageid=1>and
will be held in Barcelona on Friday June 11th, 2010.

This 1-day event will be held at
CosmoCaixa<http://obrasocial.lacaixa.es/nuestroscentros/cosmocaixabarcelona/cosmocaixabarcelona_ca.html>and
Starlab <http://starlab.es/> in Barcelona on Friday June 11th 2010.

There will be 3 keynote speakers in addition to regular talks and posters:

   - Prof. Niels Birbaumer
   - Prof. Alvaro Pascual-Leone
   - Dr. Demetrios N. Velis, M.D.

Could computers someday interact directly with the human brain? The vision
of HIVE is that in the next 50 years we will witness the coming of age of
technologies for fluent brain-computer and computer-mediated brain-to-brain
interaction. While recent research has delivered important breakthroughs in
brain-to-computer transmission, little has been achieved in the other
direction––computer-controlled brain stimulation. The goal of the workshop
is to present research on a new generation of powerful and controllable
non-invasive brain stimulation technologies. State-of-the-art presentations
on current distribution and multi-scale neuron current interaction modeling
will be presented. Results from stimulation experiments using tDCS, TMS, EEG
and fMRI in different scenarios are given in overview and original
presentations. Discussions during the workshop will lead to the design of
multisite transcranial current stimulation technologies using real time EEG
monitoring and feedback.

Given the fundamental role of interaction in human experience, advances in
this area can deliver breakthrough information society technologies of great
value in addition to advancing the state-of-the-art in fundamental
neuroscience research, neurology diagnosis and therapy through this
workshop.
