June 23 – 25, 2014
You are invited to join us in Dallas, Texas for the Neural Interfaces Conference!
The Neural Interfaces Conference Steering Committee in collaboration with the Texas Biomedical Device Center and the Bioengineering Department at the University of Texas at Dallas are leading the organization of the 41st Neural Interfaces Conference (NIC). This conference has a long history of working on key problems for advancing neural prosthetics and interface technology. It began as an annual “NIH Neural Prosthesis Workshop” in 1970 as a contractors meeting, and has since grown to become the leading conference for the neural interfaces research community.
The conference provides a forum for presentation and discussion of state-of-the-art developments in areas that include neural stimulation, neural plasticity, functional electrical stimulation, deep brain stimulation, auditory prosthesis, cortical prosthesis, peripheral nerve interfaces, biomaterials, microelectrode array technology, brain computer/machine interfaces and other related areas.
The NIC is arranged as a set of plenary sessions where each session has driving questions. The research community defined the sessions and has reached out to find the best scientists, clinicians, or engineers to answer the questions in each session. In addition, program managers in federal government driving the BRAIN Initiative and related programs as well as industry leaders will be joining us at the NIC, creating excellent opportunities for sharing new ideas and networking.
Attendance is anticipated by a diverse group of scientists, engineers, and clinicians, representing the basic and applied science aspects of neural interfaces. The integration of the Neural Prosthesis community and the Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) Consortium during this conference is expected to facilitate the sharing of knowledge and experience among groups involved in various stages of neural interface development.
Partial support for this conference is provided by the National Institutes of Health and The University of Texas at Dallas.
