From June 28-30, 2017, BrainLinks-BrainTools is hosting a well-cast international conference at the Forum Merzhausen near Freiburg.
In seven sessions spread over two and a half days, the particpants can look into current research questions related to brain-machine-interfaces. The focus lies on the feasibility of bidirectional applications. Invited keynote speakers include leading experts such as John Donoghue (Brown University and Wyss Center Geneva) and György Buzsaki (New York University) among others. Cooperation partner ICAN (International Conference for Advanced Neurotechnology) from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor will give a guest session. A panel discussion promises stimulating exchange of different views on the topic "Probe-Tissue Interaction on Long-Term Perspectives" and during the conference dinner there is also opportunity for informal discussions.
The registration period ends on Friday, June 23. Prospective attendees may enroll on this website.
A tentative program can be found here.
