Deadline extension

Due to several requests we decided to extend the deadline for submissions
to NAT'17 by 7 days.

New deadline is 20th of March, 2017, 23.59 (Berlin time, GMT+1).

Please feel free to submit a 1-page abstract (+additional figure
+references) of your novel work, your work in progress, a description of
your recent work or a proposal for a live demo.

Looking forward to see you in Berlin in July!

Feedback to authors
8th April

Early-bird registration
21st April 2017

19-21st July


Submissions to the main conference, including Research Track,
Work-In-Progress Track, and Demo Sessions should be made through
<http://www.neuroadaptive.org/> conference/2017/.

Submissions should be in the form of 1-page abstracts. A template will
be made available on the website.

All submissions will be blind reviewed by the Program Committee on the
basis of technical quality, relevance to conference topics of
interest, originality, significance, and clarity. Author names and
affiliations must not appear in the submissions, and bibliographic
references must be adjusted to preserve author anonymity.

All accepted abstracts will be published in the conference proceedings
(probably through ELSEVIER). A selection of authors will be invited
after the conference to submit full bookchapters about their research.

Detailed information:


Neuroadaptive technology utilises real-time measures of
neurophysiological activity within closed loop Human- Computer
Interaction to enable intelligent software
adaptation.Neurophysiological measures are used to create a
representation of transient psychological states. Real-time monitoring
of these states, in combination with information concerning the
situational context of the user, enables neuroadaptive technology to
adapt to the person in ways that are both timely and personalised.

The goal of neuroadaptive technology is to extend communication
bandwidth between people and computers by monitoring and modelling
processes within the brain and central nervous system. The adaptation
of software to the psychological state of the user closes the loop by
actively promoting desirable psychological states or mitigating
negative ones. For example, neuroadaptive technology may purposefully
initiate software adaptation designed to reduce workload or fatigue or
stimulate positive emotions to aid productivity. In this way,
neuroadaptive technology creates novel modes of interaction where the
intentions of the user are inferred by using the brain and body as a

>From a longitudinal perspective, sustained and repeated use of
neuroadaptive technology can evolve the user representation into a
detailed model of user preferences and responses. This development
will enhance the process of system personalization to reach a level of
intelligent software adaptation constructed around the desires of the
individual across a range of situational and psychological contexts.

The potential of neuroadaptive technology to significantly impact on
current modes of human-computer interaction raises a number of human
factors issues pertaining to machine autonomy and human-machine
cooperation.The reliance of this technology on neurophysiological data
also begs a number of ethical and societal questions related to
privacy, consent and ownership of personal data.

The closed control loop at the heart of neuroadaptive technology
encapsulates multidisciplinary methods, from neuroscientific measures
to engineering wearable sensors, it encompasses the development of
machine learning techniques, the design/evaluation of the
neuroadaptive interface and assessment of societal impact.

This is a multidisciplinary conference with strong engagement with:
applied neurosciences, mathematics, electronic engineering, robotics,
computer science and human factors psychology.

The format of the conference is 5 Keynotes, up to 3 parallel sessions
for oral presentations, poster presentations and demonstrations of
Neuroadaptive Technology.
