2017 School and Symposium on Advanced Neurorehabilitation (SSNR2017)

Baiona, Spain
September 17-22


Dear colleagues,

On behalf of all the organizers it is our pleasure to invite you to the 2017 School and Symposium in Advanced Neurorehabilitation (SSNR2017) that will take place in Baiona (Spain) from September 17-22, 2017.

SSNR2017 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 September 2017!



After the early registration deadline, there are still vacant positions. The registration is on-going until May, 15th. The admission to the School will be decided upon a selection made by the Steering Committee. Again, early registrations will be given priority. Selected participants will be notified by June 1, 2017 and the registrations must be completed before July 1, 2017.
Application: June 15, 2017
Notification: June 15, 2017
Payment: July 1, 2017
Fee (School + Symposium + Half-board accommodation + Welcome Reception + Gala dinner + Social program): 1090€


It is mandatory to provide a title and abstract in the Application Form. Authors will present their work (poster or oral presentations depending on the decision of the scientific committee) during the last two days. After the selection process of the SSNR2017, participants will be given the possibility to send full contributions (2-page abstracts) that will be included into the Proceedings.
