Trainee Collaboration Projects

Announcing a trainee-centered initiative: Trainee Collaboration Projects

To carry out the BCI Society’s commitment to young investigators and to create a more involved and long-lived Society membership, we are launching a Trainee Collaboration Projects program to support students and postdocs from different laboratories and disciplines working cooperatively on BCI-related projects.  

Each BCI Society student and postdoc member can pitch a project by February 15, 2021. For example, “the implementation of a novel P300 speller based on a publicly-available dataset of EEG recordings”. From the proposals, the BCI Society will select a few projects. All BCI Society student and postdoc members will have the opportunity to join a proposed project, providing the missing skills for its success. The BCI Society will form the teams based on the needed skills, and assign each team a mentor, who will oversee the group effort and virtually meet with the team at least 4 times per year.

Teams will work throughout the year, and will have the chance to present their plans / results at the virtual Annual Meeting (vBCI) scheduled June 7 – 9, 2021. The mentor will guide the team to publish the findings of the project in a special issue of the BCI journal.

If you are not a current student and postdoc members but desire to propose or join a project, please see how to renew or join the BCI Society here. Membership in the BCI Society is open to all students and post docs from around the world involved in the many research and practical aspects of BCI research.
