Dear Colleagues:

I am writing to invite you to attend RTXI-2015, May 7-8, 2015 in Atlanta, Georgia. This two-day meeting focuses on the application of real-time computing methods to scientific and clinical applications in neuroscience and other application areas.  While targeting users of our RTXI software (http://www.rtxi.org), participation by anyone working in the topic areas is welcome. 

For those of you who recall the “GTReal” meeting in 2005 and "BUReal" meeting in 2006, this is a successor to that meeting. What has changed in 10 years?  In short, our ability to sense and measure with newer modalities, and applications moving from the scale of intracellular studies (e.g., dynamic clamp) to multichannel scientific and clinical applications with closed loop devices.   

Invited speakers:

Chuck Dorval, University of Utah: Closed-loop neuromodulation - exposing pitfall and promises of preclinical trials via RTXI
Scott Stanslinski, Medtronic: Challenges in clinical neuromodulation: transitioning from open-loop to active-sensing and closed-loop methods
Flavio Frolich, University of North Carolina: Rational design of non-invasive (feedback) brain stimulation
Astrid Prinz, Emory University: Synaptic feedback strategies that minimize neuronal oscillator variability
Dieter Jaeger, Emory University: Real-time interactions with the mouse motor thalamus in vitro and in vivo

Topics include:

- Dynamic clamp and similar methods
- Closed-loop neural stimulation
- Cardiac dynamics and control
- Applications to neurological disease (Parkinson's, epilepsy, etc.)
- Open-source software development 

The meeting is in small setting (max. 200 attendees) with a single talk track, workshops for those new and experienced using RTXI, and posters.  Registration is $75 for students and $125 for all others, and includes breakfast and lunch on both days.  Fee waivers are also available. The venue is the Georgia Academy of Medicine, located 2 blocks south of the Midtown MARTA station.

See http://rtxi.org/conference for more information about the meeting, invited speakers, and registration information.

Supported by NIH via the RTXI project and the Neural Engineering Center at Georgia Tech.
