Dear Colleagues:

We cordially invite you to the 1st Brain-Computer Interface
Un-Conference (BCI-UC)!


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 this new way of disseminating research in
our community!
