Program, registration, and further information:

A workshop on the topic “Beyond Brain Machine Interface: From Senses to Cognition” (, sponsored by Army Research Office and IEEE EMBS, will take place on June 20, 2010, just preceding the Neural Interfaces Conference (June 21-23, Long Beach, CA). The goal of the workshop is to push the frontiers of BMI, from sensory and motor interfaces to enhancing cognitive and physical performance. To achieve this vision, the Workshop will provide a state of the art review of the field, share experiences with current systems and experimental paradigms and then present ideas and initiatives for future activities in the field.

The workshop will be designed with a pioneering spirit to push the frontiers of BMI in humans. Distinguished leaders in the field will give reviews and keynote presentations. Active researchers and young scientists are invited to present their work and progress. Junior scientists, postdocs, and advanced graduate students are invited to apply for travel fellowships to participate and to display their posters by sending an email with an abstract and a CV to editortnsre at with subject “Beyond BMI Workshop”. The registration form and further information is available at “”.
