CALL FOR PAPERS

Dear Colleague
We have the pleasure to invite you to participate in

BFAL 2017: International Conference on Brain Function Assessment in Learning

September 24-25, 2017
Patras, Greece

The conference will take place in the beautiful sea- side city of Patras in Greece.
It will be held under the auspices of the University of Patras, in its Conference and Cultural Center.

We invite submissions of conference papers by JUNE 20, 2017 at 11:59pm pacific time.

Scope of the Conference
===================================================================

The Institute of Intelligent Systems (IIS) inaugurates a new series of top-flight Thematic International Conferences. BFAL 2017: International Conference on “Brain Function Assessment in Learning opens this new series. The conference aspires to attract state of the art research on the theme of brain function assessment in learning and marks the direction towards a new and very promising field with an emphasis on new ways of investigation and ideas. It aims to regroup research in multidisciplinary domains such as Neuroscience, Computer Science, Medicine and Health, Education, Human Computer Interactions, Social Interaction, Artificial Intelligence and bring together specialists in a cross discipline approach to understand better how to use the brain capabilities to improve cognition and learning. The conference is expected to throw light on the multiple applications of Brain Function Assessment in Learning by exploring the multidisciplinary aspects which open the road to new considerations and hypothesis for complementary works.
The convergence of cognitive studies, tools of artificial intelligence, neuroscience approaches and health applications open a new era of multidisciplinary research tracks. The emergence of new assessment devices allows new ways of experimentation in laboratories, with light, non intrusive, and low cost material. Industrial representatives of relative technology will also be invited to present the new possibilities of their tools and equipment.
