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 2009-06-09.

Maximum final poster size is A0 (width x height: 841mm × 1189mm).
