EMG Decomposition Symposium 2007

 Decomp 2007

2007 Decomposition Symposium  

As part of the larger role of the EMGLAB project, a small international symposium on EMG decomposition was held at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI; Worcester, Massachusetts, USA) from 31 May 2007 through 2 June 2007. This symposium gathered 22 engineering-oriented researchers to focus on the development of techniques and applications related to EMG decomposition. The symposium was comprised of a mix of presentations of ongoing work, as well as guided discussions and open discussions of how various aspects of work in the field might be better shared. Issues in physiologic decomposition and decomposition in the clinical environment were discussed. The technical program of the meeting, including electronic files of several of the presentations, is posted (here). The list of symposium attendees is also available (here). Many of these attendees have been actively contributing data, software or other items to the EMGLAB web site/project.

The symposium was conducted as part of the EMGLAB project, which is sponsored by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) via a grant to Kevin McGill of the Veteran's Administration Palo Alto Health Care System. The symposium was co-hosted by Kevin McGill (VA Palo Alto/Stanford) and Ted Clancy (WPI).
