Neurorehabilitation has been identified as a grand challenge for the coming decades, mainly due to the fast growing population with neurological disorders (e.g., stroke, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s, etc.). Efficient, quantitative, and automated rehabilitation services are in urgent need to release the increasing demands for long-term medical treatments and healthcare and to compensate the lack of manpower in rehabilitation professionals. Neural engineering is an active research area, where engineering technologies, such as robots, imaging, artificial intelligence, telecommunication, and sensors, have contributed to diagnosis, treatment, and long-term evaluation in rehabilitation processes. Advances in neural engineering techniques, from the fundamental research in laboratories to clinical trials, will definitely promote the automated and personalized rehabilitation in the future.
This special issue aims at compiling the latest researches and advances in neural engineering with an ultimate application in rehabilitation. We invite authors to submit original research and review articles that explore the related mechanisms and/or technologies.
Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:
- Brain computer interfaces
- Neural sensors
- Neural prosthetics and robotics for rehabilitation
- Neumuscular electrical stimulation
- Neural signal processing in rehabilitation
- Quantification of rehabilitation effectiveness
- Neural imaging for rehabilitation
- Neural tissue engineering
Manuscript Due: Friday, 24 February 2017
Authors can submit their manuscripts through the Manuscript Tracking System at

The 1st UK-China HCI and Digital Health Forum has been successfully closed 48 days before. We are still receiving some inquiries about the next plan, the presentation and even the photos. This is why we set up the gallery for all potential inquiries and interests.
It might be bit of late to express our gratitude to all speakers, audience, volunteers, contributors and event partners now. However, we are highly likely to have a second chance to say in 2017. A potential forum is under planning at the moment. HCI will still be the theme. We are going to think about more broad applied areas and more business opportunities this time.
All documents, which are PDF files, are categorised into three themes: technologies, marketing and business cases. Especially, the business cases show an extremely booming EEG products market in China. It is very interesting the main force in this business is based in the city of Hangzhou, the hosting city for G20 2017 and the HQ of Alibaba.

Regarding many enquires on registering our workshop, you need to visit the British HCI 2016 conference website and open the register webpage.
To attend our forum(workshop) in Bournemouth University, you will tick the option of “Workshops (one day)” and pay the registration fee (the figure left). The registration fee is £100 which includes a lunch and refreshment. Also it is a one-off payment, you can choose to attend any workshop on 12th July.
For our forum, we offer a special offer for your registration. More details please refer to our forum agenda HCI_digitalhealth_agenda_V6.
* The first 5 registrants, who must submit to the JediMind Competition or article by the deadline of midnight at 10th July, will received £50 discount for the registration fee.
For our workshop, we estimate that 15 people are likely to attend this workshop in Bournemouth University. The audience come from three areas: R&D, industry and investment. Meanwhile we have a live streaming conference in China. All talks will be broadcasted mutually in Bournemouth and China. Our partners Newford Research Institute of Advanced Technology (NRIAT) and China-UK Innovation and Entrepreneurship Forum are responsible for running China sessions in Wenzhou and Hangzhou, the city hosting G20 2016, respectively. We expect the number of online audience will reach to 100.
