Different approaches to Brain-Computer Interfaces have been developed,
each one with specific solutions that range from understanding and
explaining cognitive functions to communicating with real and virtual
environments by thought alone.
The Berlin BCI Workshop presents an overview, in-depth tutorials and
discussions on the latest research at all levels of interaction. The
research presented will cover invasive recording, with its high temporal and spatial resolution, semi-invasive ECoG, non-invasive EEG, with high temporal and low spatial resolution, non-invasive NIRS and fMRI measurement, with partially high spatial and low temporal resolution and potential combinations of the different methods.
The workshop programme includes one day full of tutorials on invasive
BCI, electro-physiology and non-invasive BCI. The two other workshop
days cover all aspects of invasive and non-invasive EEG, NIRS and
fMRI, plus informative results of the “TOBI: Tools for Brain-Computer
Interaction” project, aspects of Brain@Work (neurotechnology-based
man-machine interaction for industrial applications) and our newly
founded Bernstein Focus: Neurotechnology (Noninvasive Neurotechnologies
for Man-Machine Interactions). The poster session following the tutorials will cross over into the BBCI barbecue, smoothing discussions
with drinks and food.
Please send your posters (in PDF) or abstracts (max. 2 pages, PDF or
plain text) to the poster chair Michael Tangermann
, no later than 2009-06-01.
