Future BNCI WORKSHOP - Barcelona, June 15 - 2011 at Cosmo Caixa.In conjunction with Real Actions in Virtual Environments RAVE 2011 & BEAMING 2011
As part of our efforts to bring the community together to talk about the future of BNCI research we are organising a 1-day workshop on Sensors and Signal Processing in BNCI and barriers to the use of BNCI outside of the lab.
In this workshop we will explore themes related to this technology including:
- Signal Processing
- Data Fusion
- User acceptance
- User centric design
- Barriers and Opportunities
We shall also hold a roundtable dedicated to discussing the BCI roadmap for Europe.
This will be an opportunity to directly influence future funding opportunities in FP8 and beyond.
Felip Miralles, head of R&D&I Health at Barcelona Digital, is a Computer Science Engineer by the Politechnical University of Valencia (Spain) and holds a MSc. in Information Systems by the New Jersey Institute of Technology (USA). For more than 20 years, he has been involved in ICT projects on eHealth, biomechanics and related fields, and has managed and implemented applied research projects in the domains of software engineering, content management, machine learning, distributed architectures, sensor networks and virtual environments. Felip is also the coordinator of BrainAble, an FP7 project on "Autonomy and social inclusion through mixed reality Brain-Computer Interfaces: Connecting the disabled to their physical and social world". BrainAble is part of the BCI cluster.
Dr. Benjamin Blankertz received the Diploma degree in mathematics 1994 and the Ph.D. in mathematical logic in 1997, both from University of Muenster, Germany. He conducted studies in computational models for perception of music and computer-aided music analysis. Since 2000 he has been with the intelligent data analysis (IDA) group at Fraunhofer FIRST in Berlin and since 2007 he has a permanent position at the Technical University Berlin. He heads the Berlin Brain-Computer Interface (BBCI, www.bbci.de) project. He is a lecturer for the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience (BCCN) and principal investigator in the Bernstein Focus Neurotechnology. His scientific interests are in the fields of machine learning, analysis of biomedical data, and psychoacoustics.
There is no registration fee for this event.
