Dear EEGLAB users and software developers,

[[appologies for multiple postings]]

Let me draw your attention to the following call for papers. Please  
distribute this call for papers to anyone you think may be interested  
in submitting, and to relevant email discusison lists.

Academic Software Applications for Electromagnetic Brain Mapping Using  
Call for Papers

The field of Magnetoencephalography (MEG) and Electroencephalography  
(EEG) source imaging is maturing rapidly. This scientific growth is  
accompanied by a variety of complementary and/or concurrent software  
solutions from the academic world.

The objective of this CIN Special Issue is to help the neuroimaging  
obtain an overview of state-of-the-art academic software applications  
for MEG/EEG data analysis, how they differ and interact, and of  
upcoming methodological trends and technical developments; the topics  
to be covered include, but are not limited to, academic software  
solutions for:

MEG and EEG data acquisition
Data preprocessing, that is, filtering, artifact detection, rejection  
or correction, trial sorting, averaging
Segmentation and geometrical modeling of head tissues
Computational electromagnetics for MEG/EEG forward modeling
MEG/EEG source analysis
Statistical appraisal and inference: confidence intervals on measures  
and hypothesis testing
Identification and evaluation of evoked, induced event-related brain  
responses and ongoing brain activity
Time-frequency decompositions, advanced spectral analysis, time series  
Estimation of functional and effective connectivity
Authors should provide detailed information regarding their software  
toolbox or application by addressing the following topics: open source  
software (yes/no), i/o file formats available, operating system,  
Matlab required (yes/no), interoperability with other software, and so  

Further, the software needs to be available for download free of  
charge at the time of manuscript submission, with sufficient  
documentation provided online to be able to reproduce the data  
analysis featured in the manuscript.

Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal's  
Author Guidelines, which are located athttp://www.hindawi.com/journals/cin/guidelines.html 
. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their  
complete manuscript through the journal Manuscript Tracking System at http://mts.hindawi.com/ 
  according to the following timetable:

Manuscript Due	September 1, 2010
First Round of Reviews	December 1, 2010
Publication Date	March 1, 2011
