International Summer School on Neural Engineering(ISSNE)

April 28th June 4th, 2017, Shanghai, China

 

 

Introduction and Aims:

 

Echoing the booming techniques and applications in neural engineering, we propose to organize an international summer school on neural engineering (ISSNE) in Shanghai, China, sponsored by IEEE EMBS and hosted by Shanghai EMBS chapter. This summer school will be hosted bienniallyin coordination with other summer schools sponsored by EMBS, e.g.international summer school on medical devices and biosensors, international summer school on biomedical imaging, international summer school on biomedical signal processing, and international summer school on bio-complexity. By introducing ISSNE, EMBS summer schoolswill cover more complete research areas in biomedical engineering, and be more geographically balanced.

 

The proposed ISSNE will provide a platform to have leading scientists and experts in neural engineering to give lectures and organize workshops to the graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and junior faculty members who will be the next generation leading researchers in neural engineering community. ISSNE provides a unique opportunity to interact with top international scientists and to network among themselves.

 

ISSNE is going to be co-sponsored by the IEEE EMBS, Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) and Ministry of Education of China. A standing steering committee will be directing the curriculum, syllabus, course evaluation, student admission, and faculty selection.  This committee will consist of leading neural engineering scientists and engineers from Johns Hopkins University, University of Minnesota, Northwestern University, Politechnico di Milano,Tsinghua University and Shanghai Jiao Tong University.

 

Every ISSNE will focus on one or several topics in neural engineering each year within one-week intense Lectures, Seminars and Discussions. The Lectures will provide the trainingtutorial courses on the fundamental theories and techniques in neural engineering, and the Seminars will present cutting edge studies in neural engineering by those leading experts, while the Discussions sessions will bring the students and the faculty to round-table meetingswith face-to-face interaction of brainstorming events.

 

The ISSNE will use the unique platforms as its teaching support, i.e. the huge clinical hospital system of Shanghai Jiao Tong University. With twelve top-ranked affiliated general and specialized hospitals, and the largest outpatient number and hospital admission number in China, SJTU has its uniqueness in bench-to-bed clinic-driven research and teaching. Students in ISSNE will have face-to-face meeting and discussions with the experts from the departments of neurology, radiology and neuroimaging centers, and get the opportunities of onsite trainingon translational neural engineering in these affiliated divisions.

Program (Draft)

Topics:

Notes: Each half day has one lecture or two seminasessions.

Lectures: The first two days of the school will include four lectures, with 4 hours of 45mineach; Each lecture will cover both a comprehensive start-of-art technique review and grand challenges in a specific area in neuroimaging or brain & neural interface.

Seminars: Following lectures are two days of seminars of 2 hr each (including presentation and discussion). The seminar talk will present the most cutting edge research in neuroimaging, brain and neural interface.

Posters: All students will be encouraged to present a poster in the school; the school will have two poster evenings. The students themselves will participate the scoring of the poster presentation, and the best posters will be awarded
