Event Manager (Brain Products)…
In the current climate so many great events and conferences are sadly being cancelled or rearranged. Rather than providing a list that will be quickly out of date, we would instead like to use this space to share with you some of the alternative resources we are planning for you. We still want to meet you, provide support and educational resources and of course answer your questions or demonstrate our solutions for your research.
ISMRM may be postponed to August, but we still have some exciting product developments and solutions to share with you. By the time you read this we will have already held our series of webinars and 1-2-1 sessions to discuss our latest and upcoming product releases for EEG-fMRI researchers. However, you can still watch the teaser videos on our YouTube Channel and the webinar recordings on our Webinar Channel. Further details are also provided in the follwing articles of this Press Release issue:
- Exciting news for our EEG-fMRI customers: Update of MRI sequence conditions
- Coming soon: R-Net MR – a sponge-based electrode system for simultaneous EEG-fMRI
- Coming soon: Carbon Wire Loops for the BrainCap MR
- Changes to the standard BrainCap MR
- Setting up BrainVision Recorder for simultaneous EEG-fMRI
Of course, we still will be at the rearranged ISMRM itself currently scheduled to be in Paris (France) on August 8 – 13, 2020.
BrainVision Analyzer 2 Workshop (Munich | Germany)
Our BrainVision Analyzer 2 workshop in Munich, Germany (scheduled for May 25 – 27, 2020) unfortunately needed to be cancelled.
Still, we know how many researchers out there are interested to learn more and have questions about data analysis techniques. Therefore, we will host a series of free, topic focused, Q&A sessions (May 25 – 28, 2020) to go some way towards replacing the workshop. The sessions will be focused on a series of prepared topics from our webinar channel, these are:
- EEG data preprocessing
- Dealing with ocular artifacts
- Creating ERPs and visualizations of results
- Analysis of spectral power and phase in the time-frequency domain
Full instructions on what to expect and how to join, can be found on our dedicated event page.
Registration will re-open on April 27, 2020.
NeuroIS Retreat 2020
Virtual Event | June 2 – 4, 2020 in Vienna (Austria)
Originally planned to be in Vienna, Austria, the NeuroIS retreat will now be a virtual event. We are excited to still be able to take part and colleagues from our strategic product management team will join the online conference to present some of our solutions and integrations for BCI (Brain Computer Interface) and HCI (Human Computer Interaction) research and answer any questions you may have. We look forward to meeting you still!
MoBI Conference and the MoBI Award 2020 Winner Presentation
The MoBI conference scheduled for June in San Diego, CA (USA) unfortunately had to be rearranged for 2021 and we will be there.
However, we still want to recognize the awesome researchers who submitted to and won our biannual MoBI award. We are looking into the best options for hosting presentations of the winning researchers. Follow us on our Social Media Channels (Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook) as well as on www.brainproducts.com or www.mobi-award.com for updates as soon as we have them.
Future Brain Products Academy hands-on Workshops
BCI Workshop | Berlin (Germany) | 19 – 21 October
We remain hopeful that the situation will have improved enough to allow us to proceed with our BCI workshop in the vibrant city of Berlin later this year. This Brain Products Academy workshop will provide scientists, entrepreneurs and industry professionals with the knowledge needed to dive into this fascinating area of research. Over three days, leaders from academia and industry will present and share their knowledge of BCI research with you.
BrainVision Analyzer 2 Workshops | UK & Singapore | Fall 2020
We also hope to be able to provide further Analyzer 2 workshops later in the year in the UK and Singapore, keep an eye on our workshop page here for any further updates.
EEG-fMRI Workshop | Singapore | Fall 2020
Also in Singapore, we plan to host a workshop focused on combined EEG/fMRI, Our Introduction to simultaneous EEG-fMRI workshop will lead you through the topics essential to setting up an EEG-fMRI study. We will cover the technical background, safety, installing the system, and handling scanner related artifacts in the EEG data. The workshop is designed for researchers who are new to this topic and those who already have some experience with EEG-fMRI and would like to consolidate their existing knowledge.
