Brain Computer Interfaces journal has a new call for papers for a special issue. The issue will be focused on the Artistic Brain-Computer Interfaces: Advances at the interface of neuroscience, art, innovation and creativity.
Recent developments in brain imaging have substantially increased our knowledge of the neural basis of human action, not only in terms of motor control, but also in relation to cognitive and emotional behavior during the performance of complex tasks in dynamically changing environments. The advent of Mobile brain/body imaging (MoBI) further allows to cross the boundaries of traditional neurosciences and to explore the human brain during the creation and perception of art, including neural activity during dance, music performance, the brain dynamics evolving in classroom settings and new forms of creative processes leading to innovation.
This is a call for manuscripts in MoBI approaches and ongoing developments in recording and analysis of brain activity and body movements of actively behaving participants. Contributions can be included in well-established neuroscience research areas and new fields including the arts, creativity, medicine, education and others.
Deadline: November 30th 2017

UMH news: Professor José Maria Azorín, the new coordinator of the Bioengineering Group belongs to the Spanish Committe of Automation
The professor of the Department of Systems and Automation Engineering of Miguel Hernández University of Elche, and director of the Brain-Machine Interface Systems Lab, José Maria Azorín, was designated as the new coordinator of the Bioengineering Group of the Spanish Committe of Automation (SCA) at the Extraordinary General Assembly of SCA that was held at the Complutense University of Madrid.
The Spanish Committee of Automation is a non-profit organization that was founded in 1968 that aims to work as a forum and provide the framework for the development of automatization in our country. In addition, the Bioengineering Group of the Spanish Committe of Automation aims to unite the efforts of different groups and Spanish centers devoted to research and development in the field of bioengineering.
