Welcome to the Brain-Computer Interface Un-Conference (BCI-UC) series!

The Brain-Computer Interface Un-Conference (BCI-UC) series has been established during the COVID-19 pandemic to explore new ways of disseminating research in our community. It is held once a year and differs in various ways from traditional conferences: 


  • Submitted abstracts are not reviewed by a pre-selected program committee but by the BCI community at large. Anybody can register for the conference and up-vote submissions. The author(s) of the top-ranked submissions are invited to present their work at the un-conference. Statistical models are employed to detect and correct fraudulent voting behavior.
  • The BCI-UC conference publishes no proceedings. As a result, submissions to the BCI-UC conference may describe already published work.
  • All presentations are streamed online free-of-charge and are accessible on the BCI-UC webpage after the event.


The BCI-UC does not intend to replace but complement traditional conferences in our field.
