Special Sessions

Special sessions are very small and specialized events to be held during the conference as a set of oral and poster presentations that are highly specialized in some particular theme or consisting of the works of some particular international project. The goal of special sessions (minimum 4 papers; maximum 9) is to provide a focused discussion on innovative topics. All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book, under an ISBN reference, and on digital support. All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef and every paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). The proceedings are submitted for indexation by The DBLP Computer Science Bibliography, Conference Proceedings Citation Index, The Institution of Engineering and Technology, Engineering Index (EI) and SCOPUS.

Nowadays, among the leading causes of the disability and high mortality are the deaseses of the central nervous system that are accomponied by the cognitive, sensor, motor and autonomic disorders.
The most common approach for treatment of such deases is the neoruprotection therapy, which promotes normalisation and strengtening of the physiological activities of the brain tissues. However, in this case pharmocological treatment methods are not always in conformity with the contemprorary requirements of the efficacy and safety of health care in the developed countries. This nonconformity have stimulated the development of new technologies for neuroprotection, based on application of the physical fields for formation of the neuromodulation proceses in the brain structures.
The goal of the special session is to present results of the latest achievements in the development of the systems for neuro-electrostimulation, the approach that implements the posibilities of the neuroplasicity.
