Special Session on Learning and Cognitive Modeling to Assistive Technologies

Brain–Computer Interface (BCI) is a direct communication pathway between the brain and an external device without the intervention of the normal output channels. The device can be a computer, wheelchair, robot, an assistive or an alternative communication device. EEG is extensively used in BCI to record the brain activity due to its non-invasiveness, portability, ease of use, cost, and high temporal resolution. Sub-vocalization is the mental rehearsal of the word without making any audible sound and without moving any speech articulators. Motor imagery (MI) is a mental rehearsal of movement without any body movement. Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) uses MI in the neurological rehabilitation.

The special session organisers invites original and novel ideas on Brain Computer Interface . Authors should submit their papers online using EDAS. Unregistered authors should first create an account on EDAS to log on. Further guidelines for submission are posted at: http://icacci-conference.org/web/call-for-papers

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Assistive Technology
  • Neuroscience
  • Signal Processing/Machine Learning
  • Sensor engineering
  • Psychology (clinical/experimental)
  • Single Neuron/local field potentials
  • Tissue Interfaces
  • ECoG
  • Neuroprosthetics/Robotics
  • Stroke Rehab
  • fMRI analysis
  • Source modeling of EEG Data
  • Neuro feedback techniques

All papers that conform to submission guidelines will be peer reviewed and evaluated based on originality, technical and/or research content/depth, correctness, relevance to conference, contributions, and readability. The manuscripts should be submitted in PDF format. Acceptance of papers will be communicated to authors by email. At least one full paying author of each accepted paper must register for the conference before the indicated deadline. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.
