Online Conference

We are glad to invite you to participate in the conference on Neural Interfaces and Artificial Senses (NIAS). The conference will take place online, from Wednesday 22nd to Thursday 23rd of September.


Since 1958 when the first pacemaker was implanted in humans, bioelectronics devices have been increasingly used to interface with different types of tissue, monitor and interact with biological activity. During our continuous endeavors to better study sophisticated neuronal systems we have become more capable of diagnosing and treating various disorders. We are currently emerging in an era where bioelectronic devices are becoming smaller, less invasive and safer, which in turn is being paralleled with new therapies for a vast range of neurological and auto-immune diseases. This opens exciting possibilities for the future, from cutting-edge technology for brain-machine-interfaces with unprecedented functionality, artificial organs and augmented senses that can change the way we perceive the world, to a more human way of interactions with robots. 


With this multi-disciplinary event, we aim to dissolve the boundaries between neuroscience, biology, engineering, and materials science and promote an interdisciplinary way of thinking, that we believe is, and will be during the coming years, responsible for the major advancements in biomedical devices, neural interfaces, and artificial sensory systems. In this symposium, we will strive to bring scientists with expertise across various fields, from all around the globe to give an overview and answer exciting questions at the interface of living and artificial systems.

Topics
Topics to be covered by the conference:
  • Bioelectronic devices
  • Electroceuticals/Bioelectronic medicine
  • Neuronal interfaces and implantable electronics
  • Materials at the interface with biology
  • Neuronal mechanisms and clinical applications
  • Artificial visual, auditory, olfactory, gustatory and tactile sensory systems.
Prizes

How can I participate at the conference?

Registration

To register you should login with your nanoGe account and purchase your ticket at the 'Registration' tab.

Submit your work

Once you have registered you can submit your contribution in the ‘Abstract Submission’ tab. There are two types of Contributions:

  • Contributed Talk
  • ePoster

Following the publication of the program the Contributed Talk not accepted can be presented as an ePoster. Please read further information at the ‘Instructions for Authors’ tab.

Please check the submissions’ deadlines.

View the Conference

Login at nanoGe to see the ‘Virtual Room’ tab which is only available for registered users.

In this tab you can watch the Live Conference, view the pre-recorded content of our Authors and access the ePoster platform.

You can also access to all the contents of the conference for two weeks after the end of the sessions.
