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.

This year 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 and our newly founded Bernstein Focus: Neurotechnology. The poster session following the tutorials will cross over into the BBCI barbecue, smoothing discussions with drinks and food.

The workshop is organized by the Berlin BCI group in cooperation with the Bernstein Focus: Neurotechnology Berlin and the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience Berlin. It is co-funded by PASCAL2 as a PASCAL2 core event.

We receive generous organizational support by the Humboldt University and the Berlin School of Mind and Brain.
