All submitted papers will pass through a plagiat control and blind peer review process with at least 2 international reviewers.

On the basis of reviewers' opinion and voting result from the conference attendance we will qualify the Best paper for the prize that will be awarded as a part of the final event at the DS-BE conference.

Accepted papers will be published in the ISSN registered conference proceedings. Presented papers will be submitted for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library (and exclusively not presented papers with the justified reason for not being able to be presented).
Authors of the best scientific papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their work to the Scalable Computing: Practice and Experience (ISSN 1895-1767) Journal.

Opatija, with its 170-year-old tourism tradition, is the leading seaside resort of the Eastern Adriatic and one of the most famous tourist destinations on the Mediterranean. With its aristocratic architecture and style, Opatija has been attracting artists, kings, politicians, scientists, sportsmen, as well as business people, bankers and managers for more than 170 years.

The tourist offer in Opatija includes a vast number of hotels, excellent restaurants, entertainment venues, art festivals, superb modern and classical music concerts, beaches and swimming pools – this city satisfies all wishes and demands.

Opatija, the Queen of the Adriatic, is also one of the most prominent congress cities in the Mediterranean, particularly important for its ICT conventions, one of which is MIPRO, which has been held in Opatija since 1979, and has attracted more than a thousand participants from over forty countries. These conventions promote Opatija as one of the most desirable technological, business, educational and scientific centers in South-eastern Europe and the European Union in general.

    Insights into Multivariate Decoding for Estimating the Temporal Dynamics of Representations Encoded in the Brain

    Elaine Åstrand, a world recognized researcher in her field, will give an invited talk about multivariate decoding for estimating the temporal dynamics of representations encoded in the brain.
    Multivariate pattern classification analysis (i.e. decoding) is a promising tool enabling the extraction of rich spatial information from ElectroEncephaloGram (EEG) activity with high temporal resolution. Multivariate decoding challenges traditional univariate analyses in that it enables the joint analysis of multiple features in relation to the discriminability between two states. For neurofeedback applications, such as for example Motor Imagery (MI) based BCI rehabilitation after stroke, obtaining the highest classification accuracy is not the ultimate goal, but instead, promoting clinically relevant modulations of the brain activity is crucial.

    More about invited speaker 

    Dr. Åstrand is an Assistant Professor in Neurotechnology at Mälardalen University in Sweden. She has a MS in Biotechnology and received her Ph.D. in Neuroscience from the Institute of Cognitive Sciences in Lyon, France. Her research is in applied neuroscience and focuses on how information can be extracted in real time from brain activity and how the extracted information can be provided as feedback in a closed-loop neurofeedback system. She is the recipient of the 2015 Société des Neurosciences Ph.D. award.
