BSEC 2010: Annual ORNL Biomedical Science and Engineering Center Conference: Biomedical Research and Analysis in Neuroscience
Location: Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Oak Ridge, Tennessee
Dates: May 25-26, 2010
Optional Date: Pre-conference tour of ORNL: May 24, 2010
CALL FOR PAPERS
The Biomedical Science and Engineering Center (BSEC) at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) announces its annual conference. This year’s theme focuses on Biomedical Research and Analysis
in Neuroscience (BRAiN), with emphasis on interdisciplinary, cross-cutting
research and applications in the areas of brain injury and neuroregeneration.
The conference goals are to: 1) identify cross-cutting, interdisciplinary tools
and applications needed by medical and scientific neuroscience communities in
the areas of brain injury (military and civilian) and neuro-regeneration, and 2)
facilitate the dialogue and collaborations necessary to address neuroscience
topics of national interest.
Papers and Posters are invited for the following topics:
1. Neuroscience/Biomedical Informatics:
a) Data acquisition
b) Data integration
c) Data mining
d) Data accessibility
e) Multi-modal assessment
f) computational data management and integration
a) Predictive models, mechanistic models
b) Statistical models
c) 3D and 4D simulations and visualizations
d) Models of behavioral outcomes
3. Neuroscience Measurement and Imaging Science:
a) Imaging of the brain and neuro-anatomy
b) Image processing and integration
c) Diagnostic and detection devices
d) Surgical and optical tools
a) Sensory cortex
b) Retinal neuroscience (independent from the sensory cortex)
d) Other relevant topics
Papers can be submitted electronically, using the link https://www.ornl.gov/bsec_conferences/2010/abstract_registration.cfm. Papers will use the IEEE short form (4-page) format. Paper Submission
Deadline: February 28, 2010. Proceedings will
be published in IEEE Xplore. Instructions for authors of posters and papers, as
well as important dates, are provided on the conference website.
All papers will be considered for both the presentation and the poster sessions. Papers not selected for presentation, but deemed of good quality will be automatically accepted in the
poster session. In addition, authors may choose to submit a paper just for the
poster session. Students (graduate and undergraduate) may submit papers only to
the poster session.
Please see the attached flyer and the conference website https://www.ornl.gov/bsec_conferences/2010/ for details.
We look forward to seeing you there. Please forward this information to all colleagues and others who might be interested.
