g.tec's BCI WORKSHOP TOUR - France

About the Workshops

BCI research is one of the most fascinating fields in neuroscience. Mental tasks or focused attention lead to changes in the brain's activity patterns which can be measured, analyzed and classified. The transformation of such changes into a control signal allows users to communicate or control external devices just by thinking. BCIs are an amazing technology, helping patients who have lost the ability to interact with their environment. This workshop introduces the major methodological approaches, technical issues, application examples, opportunities and limitations, current trends and much more.
This workshop is intended for people interested in learning the new skill of BCI communication and for people who are interested in combining BCI technology with their field of expertise. The workshop contains material about human computer interaction,  biosignal analysis in off-line and real-time mode, rehabilitation, biomedical and electrical engineering, computer sciences and Virtual Reality. A hands-on workshop will introduce the hard- and software used for research and development, allowing attendees to try a BCI and communicate just by thinking. Participants can perform live experiments such as P300-spelling, motor imagery BCI for rehabilitation and SSVEP control.

Alexander Lechner and Robert Prueckl from g.tec Guger Technologies OG are working on EEG, ECoG and spike based BCI projects within g.tec. They will give a theoretical overview about BCIs and will also held the practical sessions. They are involved in EC projects like Vere, Renachip, ALIAS, BrainAble, Decoder and Better and will also talk about these projects.

g.tec will visit 5 universities in France. At every venue, a Brain-Computer Interface workshop will be held. Each workshop includes a theoretical session as well as hands-on training with the g.tec equipment. As a special unique feature, a local BCI specialist from each region will tell the attendees more about his / her research.

Attendance is free of charge, but registration is required because space is limited. Please contact Alexander Lechner ()
