Special Thematic Session at BIC-TA 2010 on

Computational models of functional and dysfunctional brain circuitry

8th  - 10th September, Liverpool, UK


A Special Thematic Session will be held at the BIC-TA Conference 2010 on
the area of modelling functional aspects of the brain with a view to
developing a better understanding of the healthy and the dysfunctional

We would like to invite all interested authors to make full length paper
submission to the session. Submission details are available at the
conference website - http://www.hope.ac.uk/bicta2010


Background and Scope:

Apart from knowledge discovery, computational models are contributing
towards developing a better understanding of the functional, structural
and dynamical aspects of different areas of the brain. This knowledge
may have significant benefits for medical science. Furthermore,
computational models are being used extensively to help develop and
improve new bio-inspired technologies, information processing tools,
control algorithms and brain-machine interfaces. Topics of interest are,
but not limited to:

*	Psychological and neurological disorders
*	Cortical dynamics 
*	Brain rhythms 
*	Perceptual processing 
*	Cognitive and emotional processing
*	Motor circuitry
*	Models to inform new technologies such as brain-machine
interfaces, robot control



The proceedings of BIC-TA 2010 will be published by the IEEE and indexed
by EI and IEEEXplore. Selected papers will be published in a special
issue of the journal (SCI and Math Review indexed) "Natural Computing":
a Springer publication.


Important Dates:

*	Paper submissions due:  Monday 10th May 2010 Extended to 23rd
May 2010
*	Notification of acceptance: Saturday 10th July 2010
*	Revised manuscripts due: Friday 30th July 2010
*	Conference: 8th - 10th September 2010



Keynote Speakers:

*         Prof. Steve Furber, University of Manchester, UK

*         Others to be announced soon. Please see the conference webpage
