The International BCI Meeting brings together scientists, engineers, and clinicians involved in BCI research and clinical use to review the present state of the field, address key issues critical to further progress, and promote the education and participation of young researchers.

As announced before, the 8th International BCI Meeting will go virtual!  The 2021 Virtual BCI Meeting will adhere to the traditional format and will present research contributed by our members.  The program will feature keynote lectures from distinguished international guest speakers, member-submitted individual oral presentations grouped by themes, innovative workshops as well as posters and networking events.  Most presentations will be delivered live and will be recorded to support on-demand viewing until September 1st.  The virtual meeting itself will focus on creating an environment for fruitful, constructive and open exchanges.  As such we believe that this vBCI2021 meeting will, like its predecessors, contribute greatly to BCI research and development.
