The 5th IEEE Biosignals and Biorobotics conference (ISSNIP) in 2014 will be held in Salvador, Brazil. The overall purpose and theme of this conference are to provide an opportunity for scientists from around the world, with special focus for scientists and clinicians from South America, to exchange notes and discuss research in signal processing, pattern recognition, electronics and computers for helping the disabled, the elderly, and people in special circumstances. It will allow electronic, biomedical and biosignal engineers the chance to interact with clinicians, rehabilitation engineers, rehabilitation nurses and paramedics.
This conference aims at opening discussions and awareness regarding the important area of sustainability and humanity of healthcare devices. While the world population is aging, and resources are being depleted, the scaling costs of health care are a subject of concern. There is also the belief that sustainability, both financial and environment is an important factor that has yet to become a focus of discussions. This conference will be a forum to discuss these issues pertaining to biosignals and biorobotics. Specifically, the papers related to the following research topics are invited:
- Bioelectric Signal Processing
- Bioelectric signals for human computer interface with emphasis on EEG and EMG based systems.
- Bioelectric signal analysis for human health
- Bioelectric signal for communication and command
- Techniques for classification and analysis of bioelectric signals.
- Recent developments in bioelectric signal analysis
- Biomedical Image Analysis.
- Development of new algorithms for machine based analysis.
- Transmission of medical images for remote diagnosis
- Improved reliability of medical image analysis
- Reduced cost of medical imaging
- Bio-robotics: Mobility devices
- Wearable robots
- Lower limb prosthesis
- Bioelectric signals for human movement
- Bio-robotics: Manipulation
- Upper limber prosthesis
- Robotic hands
- Robots for rehabilitation.
- Other manipulative devices
- Interface Devices
- Human machine interfaces
- Human computer interfaces
- Brain computer interfaces
- Humanity and sustainability related to healthcare devices
- Cost of the devices
- Infrastructure required for these devices.
- Issues of demographics in relations to healthcare devices.
