Date: May 25, 2017


NER’17 is now inviting proposals for one-day or half-day pre-conference workshops. The pre-conference workshops will be held on May 25, from 8:00am-17:00pm.

Workshops will be focused on current and future trends in technologies and applications in neural engineering. A workshop may be delivered by a group of leading researchers and pioneers in their respective areas in a half day or full-day format with a nominal fee charged to each registrant. A website will be made available to Workshop registrant to download any material provided by the Workshop organizer(s). Workshop organizer(s) may provide any additional material such as handouts to participants during the Workshop. Speakers in workshops are not required to submit papers. Proposals may cover either of the following topics:

  • Neuroimaging
  • Brain-Computer and Brain-Machine Interfaces
  • Neural Computation and Modeling
  • Neuro-Nanotechnology
  • Neural Prostheses
  • Neuro-Robotics
  • Cognitive Neural Engineering
  • Neuromodulation
  • Brain Stimulation and Neuromodulation
  • Neurophotonics

Please fill the relevant Word template for the proposal online (click here to submit) by Nov 1, 2016. The organization committee of the conference will review and make a decision. Questions may be directed to the Conference Organizing Committee (Chair: ShanbaoTong,

Notes:In general, there will be no funding available from the conference budget to cover travel expenses for speakers that are invited to participate in the conference. Thus, we encourage you to seek funding for such expenses, if needed, from either federal agencies or private sponsors.
