BIH'15 CALL FOR SATELLITE SYMPOSIUM/SPECIAL SESSION PROPOSALS

2015 International Conference on Brain Informatics and Health (BIH'15)

August 30 - September 2, 2015, London, UK

Homepage: http://braininformatics.london/

Proposal submission due: March 10, 2015
Notification of proposal acceptance: March 30, 2015

—————————————————

Brain research is rapidly advancing with the application of big data
technology to neuroscience as can be seen in major international
initiatives in the US, Europe and Asia. BIH'15 reflects that brain
informatics has emerged as a distinct field and crosses the
disciplines of neuroscience, cognitive science, computer science,
signal processing, and neuroimaging technologies as well as data
science. Following the success of past conferences in this series,
BIH'15 will take place at Imperial College London, in UK, gathers the
researchers from major international brain research projects, and
plans an industrial exhibition.

BIH'15 draws special attention to informatics for brain science, human
behavior and brain health. BIH'15 will address big data approaches to
both the brain and behaviour, with a strong emphasis on emerging
trends of big data analysis and management technology for BI, active
media technology in behavior learning, and real-world applications for
brain and mental health.

BIH'15 welcomes proposals to organize satellite symposiums (workshops)
and high-end special sessions on related topics.

*** Topics and Areas ***

Please find the topics and areas of interest of the 2015 International
Conference on Brain Informatics and Health (BIH'15)
at http://braininformatics.london/call-for-papers/topics/

*** AMT'15 Session ***

The advance of wearable sensor technology makes the monitoring of
human behavior and life style becomes feasible. This development gives
the active media technology a new dimension which is more closely
related to the healthcare and cognitive studies. Following the success
of past conferences in this series, AMT'15 will be jointly held with
BIH'15 as a special session.

Submission Process
++++++++++++++++++

Symposium/Special-Session organizers should submit their proposals (PDF)
directly to one of the Workshop Chairs via e-mail (see email addresses below).

Symposium/Special-Session proposals should include the following elements:

- Title of the symposium/special-session
- Names of the symposium/special-session organizers, affiliation,
mailing address, e-mail
- A description of the topics of the symposium/special-session
(approx. 250 words)
- Type of the symposium/special-session (to accept full-papers or abstracts)
- A description of how the symposium/special-session will contribute
to the field
- A short description on how the symposium/special-session will be advertised
so as to ensure a sufficiently wide range of authors and high quality papers
- A list of reviewers for the symposium/special-session contributions, and
a short outline of how the review process will be conducted.

Publication

The organizers of approved workshops/symposiums/special sessions are required to
announce the call for papers, assign papers to PC members for 
reviewing and decide upon the final program.

As for the main conference, there are 2 types of Paper Submissions and
Publication, which you can choose one of them:

TYPE-I (Full Paper Submissions):

Papers need to have up to 10 pages in LNCS format:
http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0.
All full length papers accepted (and all special sessions' full
length papers) will be published by Springer as a volume of
the series of LNCS/LNAI.

TYPE-II (Abstract Submissions):

Abstracts have a word limit of 500 words. Experimental research is
particularly welcome. Accepted abstract submissions will be included
in the conference program, and will be published as a single,
collective proceedings volume.

Title: Include in the title of the abstract all words critical for a
subject index. Write your title in sentence case (first letter is
capitalized; remaining letters are lower case). Do not bold or
italicize your full title.

Author: List all authors who contributed to the work discussed in the
abstract. The presenting author must be listed in the first author
slot of the list. Be prepared to submit contact information as well as
conflict of interest information for each author listed.

Abstract: Enter the body of the abstract and attach any applicable
graphic files or tables here. Do not re-enter the title, author,
support, or other information that is collected in other steps of the
submission form.

** Post-Conference Journal Publication ***

The BIH conferences have the formal ties with Brain Informatics
journal (Springer, http://www.springer.com/40708). Accepted papers
from the conference, including their Best Paper Award papers, will be
expended and revised for possible inclusion in the Brain Informatics
journal each year. It is fully sponsored and no any
article-processing fee charged for BIH authors.

Selected submissions will be considered for publication in special
issues of international journals after their papers are extended to a
full-length paper and pass a review process. More information can be 
found at http://braininformatics.london/publications/
