Welcome to the 1st Brain-Computer Interface Un-Conference!

We invite you to join us for the 1st Brain-Computer Interface Un-Conference (BCI-UC) and explore new ways of disseminating research in our community!

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 (link will be posted here soon).
  • Registration is only required to apply for a presentation slot. Submitted abstracts are not reviewed by a program committee. Instead, 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.

In addition to the contributed talks, the 1st BCI Un-Conference features two keynotes presentations. There will be no conference proceedings.

Vote for your favorite talks!

Everybody is invited to become part of the program committee of the 1st BCI Un-Conference by registering for the conference (free of charge). When the voting systems opens on June 29th, all registered attendees receive a link to the submitted abstracts where they can up-vote every submission they would like to see presented at the conference. Voting ends on July 16th at midnight (CEST). The authors of the top-ranked abstracts will be invited to present their work at the conference.

Apply for a presentation slot!

If you would like to present your work at the 1st BCI Un-Conference, please submit an abstract:

  1. Register for the conference (free of charge) and upload the title and abstract of your presentation. There are no requirements regarding the length and content of your (text only) abstract -- just keep in mind that you would like to convince members of the BCI community to up-vote your submission. Because there will be no conference proceedings, your abstract can also focus on already published work. The organizers reserve the right to exclude submissions that are clearly outside the scope of the conference.
  2. When the voting system opens on June 29th all registered attendees receive a link where they can browse and up-vote abstracts. Abstracts can be submitted after June 29th, but may be at a disadvantage regarding the number of votes they can attract. Voting ends on July 16th at midnight (CEST).
  3. The authors of the nine top-voted abstracts will be invited to present their work at the un-conference via Crowdcast (15 minutes presentation + 5 minutes discussion). If multiple abstracts receive the same number of votes, the organizers reserve the right to break the tie.
