The 12th Annual International Symposium: Systems Biology & the Brain will be held April 14-15, 2013 at the Institute for Systems Biology (Seattle, WA). Some of the world's most influential brain researchers are coming together for a two day dialogue on current research, advances and new technologies related to discovering and understanding the complexities of the brain. This year's event will have a special emphasis on the role of systems biology in generating a quantitative and predictive understanding of brain biology and complex neurological disorders.
The Nottingham Neural Engineering Workshop will be held in Nottingham, UK, from April 15 to April 26 2013. The workshop is being organized by Stephen Coombes (University of Nottingham).
Worskhop Abstract: Neural Engineering is an inherently new discipline that brings together engineering, physics, neuroscience and mathematics to design and develop brain-computer interface systems, cognitive computers and neural prosthetics. This two week workshop, primarily aimed at younger researchers, will bring together experts in these key areas to introduce and discuss concepts that underpin current research in Neural Engineering.
The 6th International IEEE EMBS Conference on Neural Engineering will be held in San Diego, CA, from November 5-8, 2013, prior to the annual Society for Neuroscience meeting. The conference will focus on emerging engineering innovations including sensorimotor neural engineering. The window for abstract and paper submissions will be March 1 through June 5, 2013.
The 18th International Conference on Rehabilitation Robotics (ICORR) will be held on the University of Washington campus in Seattle, WA, on June 24-26, 2013. This biannual international IEEE conference will highlight current research from the world's leading research labs and clinics in the field of rehabilitation robotics. For registration, paper submission and program information, please see the 2013 ICORR web site at:
"BRAINS: Broadening the Representation of Academic Investigators in NeuroSciences" is a national program to accelerate and improve the career advancement of neuroscience postdoctoral researchers and assistant professors from underrepresented groups. BRAINS is a new program created with funding from NINDS, and is now actively recruiting applicants for the first national symposium. Applications will be accepted July 1, 2012 through August 15, 2012.
On February 10, 2012, several hundred people turned out for a "Robot Flash Mob" on the campus of the University of Washington. The event was organized to recognize an 11-year-old boy named Alex who told theMake-a-Wish Foundationhe’d like to see robots in action helping humanity and even bringing about world p
CSNE personnel from the University of Washington (UW) recently traveled to San Diego State University (SDSU) where they had an opportunity to meet with students, tour research labs, and talk to industry liaisons. CSNE deputy director, Tom Daniel, gave a seminar which was well attended and led to several conversations about potential collaborations between the UW and SDSU. The chance to meet with students from SDSU and Southwestern College (SWC) proved to be the highlight of the trip for the UW staff.
