Call for Papers: IEEE BRC2012


The 3rd IEEE BRC (ISSNIP) in 2012 will be held in the Amazonian city of Manaus, Brazil. The overall purpose and theme of this conference is to provide an opportunity for scientists from around the world, with special focus for scientists from South America, to exchange notes and discuss research in signal processing, pattern recognition, electronics and computers for helping the disabled, the elderly, and people in special circumstances. It will provide electronic, biomedical and biosignal engineers the chance to interact with clinicians, rehabilitation engineers, rehabilitation nurses and paramedics.

This conference also aims to open a new and important area of sustainability and humanity in the associated research. While the world population is aging, and resources are being depleted, the escaling costs of health care are a subject of concern. There is also the belief that sustainability, both financial and environment is an important factor that has yet to become a focus of discussions. This conference will be a forum to discuss these issues pertaining to biosignals and biorobotics. Specifically, the papers related to the following research topics are invited:
