Description
===========

Different approaches to Brain-Computer Interfaces have been developed,
each one with specific solutions that range from understanding and
explaining cognitive functions over communicating with real and
virtual environments by thought alone to real-time monitoring of
cognitive states.

The Advances in Neurotechnology Workshop presents an overview,
in-depth tutorials and discussions on the latest research at all
levels of Neurotechnology and BCI research. What is presented will
cover invasive recording, semi-invasive ECoG, non-invasive EEG,
non-invasive NIRS and fMRI measurement and potential combinations of
the different methods. Additional focus will be devoted to advances in
data analysis.

The poster session following the tutorials will cross over into the
an open discussion space, smoothing discussions snacks.

Following the workshop there will be a summerschool on selected 
topics in BCI and neurotechnology from September 20th to 28th.
It has educational tutorials in the morning session (two tutorials 
of 2h each, held by internationally renowned researchers), and 
practical hand-ons sessions in the afternoon. The practical sessions
are partly multi-track and will allow researchers in BCI/neurotechnology
to complement their expertise in the interdisciplinary field.
