ICNR 2012: Deadline Extension

ICNR 2012
2012 International Conference on Neurorehabilitation
Converging Clinical and Engineering Research
November 14-16, 2012, Toledo, Spain
Pre-conference workshops: November 13, 2012
Post-conference workshops: November 17, 2012

Dear colleague,

It is our great pleasure to invite you to the “2012 Conference on Neurorehabilitation. Converging Clinical and Engineering Research (ICNR2012)” that will take place in Toledo, Spain, from November 14 to 16. The ICNR2012 is endorsed by the International Federation for Medical and Biological Engineering (IFMBE) and IEEE EMBS and will bring together international keynote speakers, researchers and students from the fields of Clinical Rehabilitation, Applied Neurophysiology and Biomedical Engineering.

At this time, we would like to inform you that submission deadline for regular contributions has been extended to July 15. Extended abstract (2 pages) contributions are welcome. All contributions will be peer reviewed. Accepted contributions will appear in Conference Proceedings. Selected papers will be invited to Special Issues in Referred Journals: Journal on Neuroengineering and rehabilitation (JNER) and Journal of accessibility and design for all (JACCES).

We would also like to inform you that there will be an ICNR2012 Paper Competition for undergraduate and graduate students. All contributions will be peer-reviewed. Selected finalists will be asked to prepare a Poster as well as orally present their work in a Student Competition special session. The winner will be awarded with a free inscription to the 2013 Summer School on Neurorehabilitation, where he/she will have the opportunity to get in contact with world-class scientists, and to experience exciting hands-on courses on the most recent technologies (for more information about Summer School please visit the website of 2012 edition: www.ssnr2012.org).
If you are a graduate or undergraduate student willing to participate, you should:

– Submit your Extended Abstract, following to regular procedure described in “Submission Guideline” Section, by July 15.

– During the submission process, please tick the “Student Paper Competition” check box.

NOTE: If you wish to apply but you have already submitted your paper, you can re-enter your EasyChair submission by July 15, and tick the “Student Paper Competition” check box.
