IEEE Brain Discovery Neurotechnology Workshop
Workshop videos are now available here:
Explore the holistic integration of unobtrusive neurotechnology and medicine, focusing on minimally invasive regenerative strategies.
Advances in neurotechnology have the potential to ameliorate a wide range of neurological disorders and diseases, and to augment brain function in healthy individuals. Development and deployment of effective neurotechnologies will require an integrated approach that contextualizes brain function in the context of mind and body. They will also require close collaboration between the neuroengineering community, cognitive neuroscientists, and clinical practitioners. The goal of this symposium and workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners across academia, industry, and the clinical profession to discuss the current status of neurotechnology from both hardware and software perspectives, and their potential to address a wide range of disorders that affect brain, mind, and body.
This workshop is a satellite event to the 2022 Society for Neuroscience conference and will be held on the campus of UC San Diego. The program will consist of three symposia covering integrated neurotechnologies, signal processing and computational modeling, and clinical applications and impact. Each symposium will include a keynote speaker and several plenary speakers who will discuss their work in the context of larger issues in each of these topic areas. The program will also include panel sessions on entrepreneurship in neurotechnology, neurotechnology development, and on ethical implications of neurotechnology. Participation in the two-day workshop is free and open to the public.
Call for Participation: Deadline Extended to Monday, October 31
We invite participants of the 2022 IEEE Brain Discovery Neurotechnology Workshop – Brain, Mind, and Body Symposium (BMB 2022) to contribute interactive poster presentations and live demonstrations of unobtrusive neurotechnology and medicine. Use this form to submit an abstract describing your poster or demonstration for consideration in the program: https://forms.gle/d6XYGfJidYuqXm9ZA
The poster and demonstration sessions will be held during extended lunch breaks on November 10-11. Presenters are expected to let participants interact with the content in real time. Submissions with students as presenting authors will be considered for BMB 2022 Best Poster/Demo Awards with $500 prizes to the winning entries. Limited travel awards are also available to provide support for presenting students to attend the workshop.
The IEEE Brain Technical Community facilitates cross-disciplinary collaboration and coordination to advance research, standardization, and ethical development of technology intended to improve our understanding of the brain, treat disease, and improve the human condition. As an IEEE-wide effort, IEEE Brain unites engineering and computing expertise across IEEE Societies and Councils relevant to neuroscience and neuroengineering. IEEE Brain strives to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in membership, leadership roles, and events.
