IEEE EMB/CAS/SMC Workshop on Brain-Machine-Body Interfaces
The IEEE EMB/CAS/SMC Workshop on Brain-Machine-Body Interfaces will be held on Monday August 27, 2012, in San Diego, California, From the call for papers:
"Brain-machine interfaces (BMI), or brain-computer interfaces (BCI), extend the capacity of the human brain in directly communicating and interacting with the environment. BMI/BCI research has traditionally focused on harnessing this capability for applications of neural prostheses in restoring communication and mobility of the motor impaired. A larger range of clinical applications are now emerging that extend the BMI/BCI and neural prostheses paradigms to brain-machine-body interfaces, harnessing benefits of neuromodulation and sensory feedback in interfacing across the central and peripheral nervous systems, facilitating closed-loop and minimally-invasive remediation of neurological and motor disorders, and more generally encompassing mind-body in health and wellbeing.
This 3rd workshop in a series co-sponsored by the IEEE EMB, CAS, and SMC Societies highlights advances in brain-machine-body interface technology and its myriad applications promoting health and wellness that result from synergies between scientists, engineers, and clinical practitioners in this rapidly emerging field."
