Dear colleagues,

we are pleased to announce the Special Session

Brain-computer Interfaces and Brain Stimulation for Neurorehabilitation
(BrainRehab 2013)
http://www.neurotechnix.org/BrainRehab.aspx

as part of the

Neurotechnix 2013
International Congress on Neurotechnology, Electronics and Informatics
http://www.neurotechnix.org/Home.aspx

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.

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

--------------------------------------------------

*Publication:*

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.
