Nottingham Neural Engineering Workshop

Nottingham, UK – April 15-26 2013 – Stephen Coombes, University of Nottingham.

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.

This workshop is the first scientific event supported by NETT.  NETT – Neural Engineering Transformative Technologies – is a Marie Curie Initial Training Network comprising of 18 European universities, research institutes and private companies who together will host 17 PhD students and 3 postdoctoral researchers over the next 4 years [www.neural-engineering.eu].

Confirmed speakers:
Tomas Bellamy (University of Nottingham, UK) Romain Caze (Imperial College, UK) Fabrizio Conicella (Bioindustry Park Silvano Fumero S.p.A., Italy) Stephen Coombes (University of Nottingham, UK) Peter Dayan (University College London, UK) Wolfram Erlhagen (University of Minho, Portugal) Steve Furber (University of Manchester, UK) Jordi Garcia-Ojalvo (Polytechnic University of Catalonia, Spain) Michele Giugliano (University of Antwerp, Belgium) Axel Hutt (INRIA, France) Christopher James (University of Warwick, UK) Andrew Jackson (Newcastle University, UK) Bert Kappen (Radboud University Nijmegen, The Netherlands) Maria Lopez (BitBrain, Spain) Cristina Masoller (Polytechnic University of Catalonia, Spain) Rob Mason (University of Nottingham, UK) Tim Pearce (University of Leicester, UK) Rasmus Petersen (University of Manchester, UK) Rodrigo Quian Quiroga (University of Leicester, UK) Noah Russell (University of Nottingham, UK) Simon Schultz (Imperial College, UK) Alessandro Torcini (National Research Council, Italy) Sid Visser (University of Nottingham, UK).

The meeting will consist of invited speakers and existing members of NETT.  There is space to accommodate a further 30 participants and the schedule will allow for a number of poster presentations.

The deadline for application to attend by non NETT members is March 1 2013. The registration fee for non NETT members is 100.00 GBP.
