Special Session on "Muscle synergies: towards clinically oriented applications"

Venue: ICNR2016, Segovia, Spain October 18 - 21, 2016 (http://www.icnr2016.org )

Muscle synergies are becoming more and more attractive in the neurorehabilitation scenario, due to their ability to describe neuromuscular coordination in a compact and intuitive way. After fifteen years of research in the field of neuroscience, we are now observing an increasing number of applications in the fields of rehabilitation robotics, neuroprosthetics, neuromuscular modelling and clinical assessment. This special session wants to gather all these new ideas for translating the muscle synergy analysis into the future of rehabilitation practice.

Abstracts (2-page) focused on the application of muscle synergies in the following areas are welcome:

- Control of wearable robots, prostheses and neuroprostheses
- Simulation of movement
- Assessment of human performance and pathologic behaviour
- Biofeedback
- Biomechanical and Neurophysiological models
- Other rehabilitation approaches

All contributions will appear in the Conference Proceedings and published as a book by Springer Submission.
Authors of the best papers of ICNR2016 will be invited to submit a substantially extended version of their papers for their publication in a Special Issue of the International Journal of Neural Systems (Impact Factor: 6.507).

Submission should be done through the following Easychair link: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icnr2016.
Templates for the 2-page extended abstracts can be found at the ICNR2016 website, please go to "Contributions & Registration”>“Submission”.

- Manuscript submission deadline: April 1, 2016.
- Notification of manuscript acceptance: May 15, 2016.

The 2016 International Conference on Neurorehabilitation will bring together researchers and students from the fields of Clinical Rehabilitation, Applied Neurophysiology, and Biomedical Engineering to promote, feed and encourage this therapeutic global shift. Moreover, the conference will be held in parallel with the International Symposium on Wearable Robotics, which will bring together researchers and innovators from all around the world to discuss novel approaches, challenges and potential solutions in technologies for wearable robots, especially in the clinical field.
