The deadline for abstract submission has been extended to May 4, 2010.

We hereby invite contributions to this first public Hyper Interaction
Viability Experiments 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

The HIVE 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 and will be held in Barcelona on Friday June 11th,

This 1-day event will be held at Barcelona's CosmoCaixa Science Museum and
Starlab, on Friday June 11, 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
