[Comp-neuro] BBCI Winter School on Neurotechnology 2014

We are happy to announce the *BBCI Winter School on Neurotechnology 2014*
February 24-28, Berlin, Germany

Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCIs) and alternative applications of Neurotechnology based on sophisticated data analysis methods have become an active and flourishing field of research. Its attractivity and also its complexity is based on the fact that this area requires concerted expertise and effort of a number of different fields including neurophysiology, machine learning, electrical engineering and psychology.
With the aim of fostering interdisciplinary training and exchange, we organize the BBCI Winter School 2014 on selected topics in BCI and Neurotechnology from February 24th to 28th. It has educational tutorial lectures in the morning sessions (two tutorials of 2h each, held by internationally renowned researchers), and practical hands-on sessions in the afternoons. A poster session will provide the participants the opportunity to exchange ideas about their work.
In order to warrant an expedient atmosphere, the total number of participants is limited to 60. Furthermore, each practical session has its specific limit for participation. Upon application, preferences for the practical sessions can be specified after acceptance and we will do our best to provide a good match.
For application, please provide your CV and a short statement of motivation. Researchers interested to present their work (also preliminary) at the poster session are asked to submit a short abstract (1/2 - 1 page).
