TCNRE is a standing IEEE EMBS technical committee which provides technical expertise in major areas within the Neural and Rehabilitation Engineering (NRE) field. It contributes to a public debate on important issues in the NRE field via special conferences, workshops, symposia and special issues in related journals. In particular, it advises the Conference and Publications leadership of EMBS regarding NRE interests and promotes these interests by interacting with:
(a) the Technical Program Chair of the Annual Engineering in Medicine and Biology Conference in the organization of NE technical sessions for the Conference, and
(b) the Editorial Board of EMBS publications (e.g., TBME, TNSRE) in the organization of special issues on NE topics.
Other TCNRE activities include the organization of special conferences and workshops on NRE, as well as interaction with other societies (e.g., The Society for Neuroscience) on matters of mutual interest.
