Neural engineering is an emerging discipline to understand the organizational principles and underlying mechanisms of the biology of neural systems and to study the behavior dynamics and complexity of neural systems in nature. It coalesces the engineering including electronic and photonic technologies, computer science, physics, chemistry, and mathematics with the molecular, systems, cellular, cognitive and behavioral neuroscience.

To highlight this emerging discipline, the 1st International IEEE EMBS Conference on Neural Engineering was held on March 20-22, 2003 at the Capri Island, Italy with partial sponsorship of the NSF. More than 200 people attended the conference. Sixteen students and seven post-docs and young faculty were partially supported by the NSF. The conference was a scientifically, socially, culturally success.

The 2nd International IEEE EMBS Conference on Neural Engineering will be held in Washington D.C., USA from March 16 through March 19, 2005. The objective of this conference is to highlight the emerging field, Neural Engineering that unites engineering, physics, chemistry, mathematics, computer science with molecular, cellular, cognitive and behavioral neuroscience and encompasses such areas as replacing or restoring lost sensory and motor abilities, defining the organizing principles and underlying mechanisms of neural systems, neurorobotics, neuroelectronics, brain imaging and mapping, cognitive science and neuroscience.

Come and join us in Washington D.C.!
