Call for papers

Brain-Machine Interfaces (BMI) systems offer the possibility of a new generation of multidisciplinary technologies that allow users to directly control devices via the nervous system. Successful realization of such approaches requires seamless interaction of the human and the machine, involving not only the decoding of the (neural) control signals but also efficient means to provide information back to the user (e.g. haptics). Furthermore the use of shared control principles, allowing the cooperation between the adaptive intelligent systems and the user greatly improves the system performance. The goal of this workshop is to facilitate the interaction and intellectual exchange between all researchers, developers and consumers of this technology.

Special sessions

Like previous years, the workshop will be composed of multiple special sessions, as listed below.

Manuscripts should be submitted through the SMC submission system. Please pay attention to clearly indicate which session your paper is intended for.  Papers submitted to a Special Session should NOT be submitted in duplication to any other regular or special session. We would appreciate if you contact the organizers for arrangement of submission in the first instance and ease organisational issues.

All submitted papers will undergo the same review process (three completed reviews per paper). The technical reviewers will be members of the SMC Program Committee and qualified peer-reviewers to be nominated by the organisers. Accepted papers will be published  in the proceedings of the SMC 2015 conference and indexed in IEEExplore.


The workshop is co-organized by the IEEE SMC TC on Brain Machine Intterface systems and the IEEE SMC TC on Shared Control.
