1st Brain-Computer Interface Un-Conference (BCI-UC)

We cordially invite you to the 1st entirely virtual Brain-Computer Interface Un-Conference (BCI-UC) on July 23rd, 2020. Apart from keynotes of: Mariska J Vansteensel (UMC Utrecht) & Christian Herff (Maastricht University) scientists are invited to apply for a presentation slot.

The 1st BCI-UC is an entirely virtual event that takes place on July 23rd 2020 from 3 pm to 9:30 pm (CEST).

It differs in various ways from traditional conferences in our field:

  • All presentations are publicly streamed via Crowdcast.
  • Anybody can apply for a presentation slot by submitting an abstract. All registered attendees can up-vote their favorite abstracts. In this way, the whole community decides which presentations they would like to see presented at the conference.
  •  Voting commences on Monday, June 29th at 8 am (CEST) and ends on Thursday, July 16th at 12 midnight (CEST). The authors of the top-rated abstracts are invited to present their work at the conference.
  •  Registration (free of charge) is required for submitting an abstract and to up-vote submissions.


In addition to the contributed talks, the 1st BCI Un-Conference features two keynotes presentations:

1.      Mariska J Vansteensel (UMC Utrecht Brain Center): Towards the Daily Life Implementation of ECoG-BCIs

2.      Christian Herff (Maastricht University): Decoding Speech from Invasive EEG


Please join us in exploring new ways of disseminating research in our community!
