    Last fifteen days to apply!!!

    2016 School and Symposium in Advanced Neurorehabilitation (SSNR2016)
    Baiona, Spain
    June 6-10


    Dear colleagues,

    On behalf of all the organizers it is our pleasure to invite you to the 2016 School and Symposium in Advanced Neurorehabilitation (SSNR2016) that will take place in Baiona (Spain) from June 6-10, 2016.

    SSNR2016 will provide in depth education on advanced procedures for neurorehabilitation of motor dysfunction, covering -at the basic and advanced levels- practical applications based on innovative neuroprosthetic systems, robotic interfaces and other combinational approaches. This year the Summer School of Neurorehabilitation and the Demove Symposium meet in an intense week to offer you exceptional opportunities to increase your skills and knowledge in the astonishing field of Neural Engineering and Rehabilitation.

    We are looking forward to welcoming you in Baiona (Spain) on June 2016!
