The 9th International IEEE EMBS Conference on Neural Engineering will be held at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square Hotel, San Francisco, CA – USA on March 20-23, 2019.

The conference program will feature preconference workshops, plenary talks, invited talks, and poster presentations.

All one (1) page abstracts and four (4) page papers will be peer reviewed. Accepted one (1) page abstract and full-length four (4) page papers will appear in the Conference Proceedings.  Only four(4) page papers will be published in IEEE Xplore.

Members of the Neuroscience, Engineering and Bioethics Communities are encouraged to attend this highly multidisciplinary meeting. The conference will highlight emerging neurotechnologies for the restoration and enhancement of impaired sensory, motor, and cognitive functions, novel engineering tools for elucidating brain function, and discussions on the ethics of neurotechnology use and adoption by impaired and healthy individuals.


The conference program will feature preconference workshops highlighting some of the most topical subjects in NER. Members of the Neuroscience, Engineering and Bioethics Communities will be attending this highly multidisciplinary meeting.
