BCI Meeting Logo

June 3-7, 2013
Asilomar Conference Center, Pacific Grove, California

National Science Foundation (NSF) Student Colloquium

Monday June 3, 1:30 - 6:00 pm  ·  Fred Farr Forum

BCI research requires collaborations between workers in many different disciplines. As a result, students enter the field with a variety of backgrounds and have only a partial understanding of the field. Consequently, a special colloquium will be held prior to the main meeting for students that are currently enrolled in a graduate program or engaged in postdoctoral studies. The colloquium will feature four presentations that will give an overview of the field and provide preparation for the specialized sessions that are the focus of the main meeting. After completing the colloquium, students will be generally familiar with all aspects of BCI research.

Tutorials will consist of four 1-hour lectures including an introductory lecture by Dr. Jonathan Wolpaw who will present a broad overview. The remaining lectures focus on the essential components of BCI: hardware and software, signal processing, applications, and user groups. Students will receive assignments prior to the tutorial and submit questions-to-the-experts, who will join together in a final panel to address and discuss these questions.

1:30 - 2:30Introductory lecture - Jonathan Wolpaw (Wadsworth Center)
