Brain stimulation and Brain computer or robot interfaces: clinical, scientific and social challenges, 24-29 September 2011, Island of Porquerolles (FR)

Organized in the framework of the ESF Conference Scheme,  the “Entre-Sciences Conferences on Brain, Technology & Cognition” provide a framework for multidisciplinary exchanges in order to give a broad perspective of studies on cognitive sciences. Calls for proposal are announced on the ESF website two years before each conference. Proposals are evaluated on the basis of International Peer Review and are selected according to their scientific quality, cross-disciplinary nature and international dimension.

The conference series gives the opportunity to young researchers to meet leading scientists in a multi-disciplinary framework, and create new synergistic contacts throughout Europe and the rest of the world. Participants are invited to stay during all the conference period (5 days) and are hosted at the same venue. Invited lectures, short talks, round tables and poster sessions are organized. Free time is given to informal discussions, relaxation, group excursions.
