Neuromodulation is a rapidly-growing field, encompassing the application of
targeted electrical/chemical/biological stimuli to the nervous system in
order to improve function and quality of life. At present, an increasing
number of implantable and non-invasive techniques are being proposed and
made available to the clinicians, to stimulate CNS plasticity and foster
recovery from motor, neurological and psychiatric disorders. Advancing in
the field of neuromodulation represents challenges to build accurate
neurophysiological models, understanding mechanisms of neuromodulation at
cellular and systems levels, defining optimal engineering methodologies,
and developing clinical application to treat patients. This session
provides an opportunity for researchers/engineers/clinicians to present and
discuss novel neurorehabilitation paradigms based on neuromodulation
targeted at the spinal and/or supraspinal level.
Top quality papers at NEUROMOD will be eligible for inclusion in the
post-congress IOP journal of best papers or even for the best-paper award
to be presented at the main congress, NEUROTECHNIX.

This special session/symposium is part of the International Congress on
Neurotechnology, Electronics and Informatics (NEUROTECHNIX -
http://www.neurotechnix.org/), which is sponsored by the Institute for
Systems and Technologies of Information and Control and Communication
(INSTICC) and held in Cooperation with the Associacao Portuguesa de EEG e
Neurofisiologia ClÌnica (APEEGNC), Neurotech Network, International Neural
Network Society (INNS), Nansen Neuroscience Network, World Federation for
NeuroRehabilitation (WFNR), Sociedade Portuguesa de Neurologia (SPN),
International Neuromodulation Society (INS), International Federation of
Clinical Neurophysiology (IFCN) and International Brain Research
Organization (IBRO).

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 and every
paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier).
The Congress Proceedings will be submitted to appropriate indexes for
indexation. A short list of presented papers will be selected so that
revised and extended versions of these papers may be published by IOP
Publishing on Journal of Neural Engineering.

With this workshop we would like to bring together different researchers
already active in the development of new neuromodulation techniques and
protocols, with the goal of identifying the optimal developments and
assessment strategies to be targeted in future studies and applications.

Should you have any question or suggestions please don't hesitate to
