1st International Workshop on Autism Research and Technology (IWART)

April, 2019. Tijuana, Mexico

Autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by impaired social interaction, verbal, non-verbal communication, restricted and repetitive behavior. Autism is related to various parts of the brain, such as the amygdala, hypothalamus and cerebral cortex. In these regions, the activity expressed at the level of signals is significant in processes such as communication and learning. IWART aims to gather researchers and research work concerned with the characterization of autism in order to update the state of the art and promote the creation of technology to support autism treatment from the perspectives of computer science and electronics. The destination of conference proceedings will be in Revista Aristas and in one of ECORFAN’s catalogue of Journals, for more details please go [here].
