It is a great pleasure to welcome you to the 2008 Annual Meeting of the Society of Applied Neuroscience - From Basic Neuroscience to Outcome - to be held together with the EC COST Action B27 from 7th to 11th May 2008. We feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to hold this Meeting in the beautiful city of Seville in Spain.
Seville is the largest town in Southern Spain and the city of Carmen, Don Juan and Figaro. The Hotel Hesperia Sevilla, one of Seville's classics, located close to one of the city’s main shopping areas and 5 minutes from the beautiful historic centre of the Andalusian capital will be the conference venue.
The Scientific Programme promises to be an exciting one. Some highlights include plenary addresses by leading scientists such as Dr. Andrew Papanicolau on magnetoencephalography in dyslexia and amnesia, Dr. George Northoff on fMRI and psychiatric conditions, as weel as Dr. Roy John on QEEG applications. The meeting will cover a wide amount of applied neuroscience fields. These include neurofeedback, peripheral biofeedback, brain-computer interfaces, neuro-rehabilitation, and neuronal reorganisation through behavioural methods, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), and real-time self-regulation procedures using fMRI and MEG. For detailed information on the Programme please check the dedicated conference website .
The Society of Applied Neuroscience will meet in Seville from 7th to 11th May, 2008.
Spring is the high season in Seville, the famous orange trees which line the streets are in full bloom, and the air is heavy with their scent.
A range of hotel accommodation prices has been added including student accommodation, while the discounted hotel venue rate is highly recommended.
Conference details are available on the conference website.
This is the time to send in your suggestions about symposia, workshops, and roundtable discussions. What issues would you like discussed at the conference?
The Scientific Committee welcomes abstract submissions for Oral and Poster presentations. This meeting will be held in association with EC COST Action B27 (Electrical Neuronal Oscillation & Cognition).
The closing date for abstract submission is February 15th, 2008. All applicants will be notified of acceptance two weeks following the submission date.
All submissions should be made electronically.
Authors should provide permission for abstract publication and specify the presentation format (oral or poster) at the time of submission. The final format will reflect the decision of the scientific committee and the demands of the program.

At least one of the authors listed on the abstract must be registered for the congress. Registration is required before abstract submission. Only abstracts submitted before April 15th 2008 will be published in the proceedings of the congress.
Speakers must give the presentation (MS Power Point file) to the technical staff one hour prior to his/her scheduled session.
Invited speakers include to date: Niels Birbaumer (BCI), Arne Dietrich (creativity/ and hypofrontality & exercise), Wolfgang Klimesch (oscillations), Juri Kropotov (ADHD), Gert Pfurtscheller (BCI), Ari Rothenberger (ADHD), Eric Vermetten (PTSD).
According to legend, Sevilla was founded by Hercules and its origins are linked with the Tartessian civilisation. It lies on the banks of the Guadalquivir, is the largest town in Southern Spain and the city of Carmen, Don Juan and Figaro. The University of Seville is steeped in history and is one of the most important cultural centres in Spain, dating back to the 15th century when the Catholic Kings recovered the area from the Moors. It was originally the Colegio de Santa María de Jesús, created by Arcediano Maese Rodrigo Fernández de Santaella and was confirmed as a practising university in 1555 by the papal bull of Pope Julius II.
