Room: Merrill Hall, Asilomar Conference Grounds

The National Science Foundation (NSF) Student Colloquium is a special session designed to provide students with background information that will assist in understanding of the rest of the BCI Meeting.  The NSF Student Colloquium is required for winners of the NSF Student Travel Support.  It is free for all who care to attend.

All NSF Travel Award Recipients must attend the Colloquium, but attendance is open to all students.  To confirm your attendance, please contact Melody Moore-Jackson at melody@cc.gatech.edu ASAP.

Eleventh BCI2000 Workshop

Monday, May 30th, 2016
8:00 (registration and welcome)
Program: 8:30-5:30
Room: Nautilus East
Registration fee: Waived due to grant funding.
Contact:  Theresa Vaughan

A registration form is available here.

The purpose of this one-day workshop is to familiarize researchers with the latest version of BCI2000 (V3.6) and to demonstrate its use in translational research through lectures and hands-on training. Attendees will learn about the principal concepts behind BCI2000 software, as well as recent and ongoing BCI2000-based translational research at the National Center for Adaptive Neurotechnologies and elsewhere. Those who will benefit from this workshop include engineers who want to learn about BCI2000 and individuals interested in basic and translational BCI research.

BCI2000 Workshop Faculty:

Jeremy Hill, Ph.D.
Disha Gupta, Ph.D.
Adam Wilson, Ph.D.
William Coon, Ph.D.

recoveriX and mindBEAGLE workshop: motor recovery neurotechnology and consciousness assessment and communication

Monday, May 30th, 2016, 8:00-18:00
Room: Evergreen

(Please Note: There are issues viewing the PDF of this document in Chrome.  If you cannot see both pages of the attachment, please use Firefox or IE)

Brain-computer interface systems can be used for many different applications. This workshop will show two high impact applications for (i) motor recovery of stroke patients and (ii) consciousness assessment and communication. Expert users will discuss the technology and validation studies in different international institutions. Attendees can test the technology during the workshop and learn to better use this neurotechnology in their future work. A workshop flyer if available here.

Note: There is no charge for this event. If you would like to register for this event, please email Christoph Guger at guger@gtec.at

Organizers: Christoph Guger, Brendan Allison

Speakers: Christoph Guger, Brendan Allison, Kyousuke Kamada, Jing Jin

The 2nd international OpenVIBE workshop 2016

Date: Monday, May 30th, 2016, 9:00 am-5:00 pm
Room: Kiln

OpenViBE is a software platform dedicated to designing, testing and using brain-computer interfaces (BCI). It can be used to acquire, filter, process, classify and visualize brain signals in real time. Five years after its first official release (the OpenViBE project started in 2006 and the first version of the software was released in 2009), OpenViBE now appears to be used by multiple people and laboratories all over the world and has become a major BCI platform. After the first international OpenViBE workshop in 2014, in Graz, as a satellite event of the International BCI conference, this second workshop will be a new opportunity for the OpenViBE community to meet, exchange and further collaborate. This workshop will consist of a mix of tutorials, scientific presentations and discussions between users, targeted at both beginners who want to discover OpenViBE or people already using OpenViBE who would like to learn more about the software and its numerous possibilities.

Neurophysiology, Neuroimaging and Brain Computer Interfaces in Autism Spectrum Disorders: Progress and Pitfalls

Date and Time: Friday, 3rd June 1:00 – 5:00 pm (Coffee available). You are welcome to join us from 1:00 pm for coffee,  introductions and  networking with speakers.
Room: Triton

The aim of this short workshop is to discuss and share, not only the progress being made in autism neuroengineering research but more importantly, the outstanding challenges that either stall or disrupt state-of-the-art research ideas, such as BCI, from being applied in this challenging disorder. The essence of the discussion is to share the lessons learnt from designing, setting up and running neurophysiology research experiments for people with autism, especially children or more-affected people. These valuable experiences are seldom published and researchers lose time and resources in retracing these steps, with little incremental progress. We would also like to reach out to the caregivers and therapists in ASD and connect them with the engineering and research community.  They have the deepest understanding in the practical nuances of managing behavior and enlisting skills aptly, especially in the more-affected people with autism.The workshop will include short scientific presentations from invited speakers, followed by themed interactive discussions with all participants. Anyone who is interested in or is pursuing neuroengineering research in autism might find the discussion interesting and helpful. We invite engineers, clinicians, researchers, therapists, caregivers, industrial equipment manufacturers, to participate and contribute to the discussions. There is no charge for this meeting but please register AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, as seating is limited. To register please email Disha Gupta atdig2015@med.cornell.edu. If you would like to present something interesting relevant to the topic, let us know.  You are welcome to bring lunch, if you’d like.

Organizers: Dr. Disha Gupta, Dr. Walid Soussou, Dr. Dennis Dixon

Speakers:  Dr. Disha Gupta, Dr. Walid Soussou, Dr. Dennis Dixon, Jewel Crasta, Eohan George.

Speakers: Dr. William Bosl, Dr. Dennis Dixon, Angela Persicke, Dr. Christoph Guger, Dr.Walid Soussou, Jewel Crasta, Eohan George, Dr. Disha Gupta

Cost: None, but please register as seating is limited. To register please email Disha Gupta at dig2015@med.cornell.edu. If you would like to present something interesting relevant to the topic, let us know.
