The brain receives and processes information simultaneously coming from
diverse sources. The neurons, being the basic information processing units,
interconnect to each other to form hierarchical and/or parallel pathways.
Technologies related to neural systems engineering have been employed to
study these pathways along with processing and modelling of neuronal data
for disease diagnosis and brain decoding purposes.

Combining both experimental and computational approaches in recent years,
thanks to the advancements in neurotechniques, scientists can access large
amount of neuronal data and apply computationally intelligent and
nature-inspired machine learning techniques including deep learning and
reinforcement learning on those data to suggest next generation
experimental design aiming to decipher brain’s information processing
capabilities and diagnose its diseases.


Developing data-intensive and intelligent tools, as well as sophisticated
neurotechniques, to process and analyse the neuronal big data is one of the
biggest challenges posed to today’s multidisciplinary brain science
community. To share recent progress in decoding neuronal information
processing, both in healthy and diseased brain, this special session aims
to provide a forum for scientists from diverse disciplines including –
computer, electrical, biomedical, and neuro engineering – who are looking
for more relevant information in interpreting brain functions and
diagnosing diseases using expert and computationally intelligent systems.

This special session expects to attract papers on recent research progress
in the area of intelligent computational tools and techniques in acquiring
and processing neuronal big data. The focus areas include, but not limited
to, the following:

Ø Neural systems engineering and technology to study neural pathways;

Ø Processing and modelling of neuronal data for disease diagnosis and brain

Ø Bio-inspired methods for network analysis and pattern recognition in
neural data;

Ø Novel machine learning techniques for neuronal big data analysis;

Ø Application of deep and reinforcement learning to neuronal big data

Ø Computationally intelligent techniques for neuroscience applications;

Ø Neuroinformatics (including cloud computing and real-time systems);

Ø Cognitive science applications (learning, workload, decision making,
etc.) and data analytics;

Ø Computational and imaging methods for human brain connectome; and

Ø Information analysis in human brain machine interface (invasive,
