BCI Foundation Award Ceremony

Wednesday, June 10

The International BCI Award, endowed with 6,000 USD, is one of the top accolades in BCI research. The BCI Award was created to recognize outstanding and innovative research in the field of Brain-Computer Interfaces. 12 projects are nominated before the winner is announced at the BCI Award Ceremony.

To submit your BCI project, please see the website

The brain-computer interface designers hackathon

Sunday, June 7 (8:00am) to Monday, June 8 (3:00 pm)

Hackathons are brainstorming and collaborative marathons designed to rapidly produce fully functional BCI prototypes and provide an environment for innovation and entrepreneurship.

The BCI hackathon brings developers, technologists, engineers, students, artists, and scientists together in teams of 5 participants each over 2 days to cram and build solutions that they can present and are designed to be a learning experience for everyone. By putting creative minds from multiple disciplines together for a short period of time, we have the opportunity to discover and uncover possibilities for using BCI-related hardware and software not readily thought of.

Anyone can participate who has interests in BMI, BCI, robotics, AR, VR, machine learning, computing, sensors, human-machine interface systems, control, signal processing, big data, haptics, rehabilitation, and similar areas. One does not have to be a BMI expert to participate on a team! Interdisciplinary teams with a combination of BMI and non-BMI skills are often successful in building solutions and producing working prototypes.
