ESAO-IFAO World Congress on Artificial Organs

6-9. September 2017, Vienna, Austria,

Prof Heinrich Schima is a main organiser of this event.

Inspired by the unique “Agent Unicorn” headpiece from Fashion-Technology-Artist Anouk Wipprecht (Read the interview with Anouk on our g.tec blog), this hackathon challenges young geeks to design and build a unique, playful and wearable headpiece which is able to measure useful EEG signals in real-time to create any sort of interaction. With the intended purpose in mind, the teams plan and produce their own fully functional headpiece. 3D printers are on-site, so the teams will be able to give their headpieces an individual design that fits on participants’ head.

The goal of this hackathon is to bring people of different professions together, such as engineers, programmers or graphic designers. As an interdisciplinary team, they learn from each other and merge well established hardware and software in order to create a new, innovative and exceptional idea. The participation only requires basic knowledge in Brain-Computer Interfaces, machine learning, programming, signal processing or designing.

44. ESAO-7. IFAO Congress on Artificial Organs in Vienna

September 6-9, Vienna, Austria

Special feature!! It is our great pleasure to announce the meeting of the young European Society for Artificial Organs. It will be held in Vienna on September 5-6/2017, immediately preceding the main ESAO event.
young ESAO September 5-6/2017, Vienna, Austria

ESAO shall bring together researchers, developers and clinical specialists, which are involved in the development and application of artificial and bio-artificial organs. Our societies are engaged traditionally in the research and application of cardiovascular implants, blood purification devices, biomaterials and in biological organ repair and replacement. Additionally we want to emphasize this year also the functional stimulation of nerves and muscles and the development of intelligent limb prostheses. The motto of our congress “Artificial Organs in the Orchestra of Life” shall highlight that the creation and use of such organs is not only limited to scientific and medical questions. The progress in this field includes more and more aspects of “Quality of Life”, psychological, regulatory and economical aspects, ethics and user-friendliness in the viewpoint of different cultures and societies.
