The 3rd International OpenViBE workshop (2018)

Location: Miyazaki, Japan

Date: October 7, 2018

Workshop of the IEEE International Conference on Systems, Man and Cybernetics (IEEE SMC 2018)

Time 09:00 – 12:00

SuAM-R06-W02 : Third International OpenViBE Workshop

Room: 4F R06 (4F Crystal)

Session Chairs: Fabien Lotte, Laurent Bougrain, and Sebastien Rimbert

Brain-Machine Interfaces (BMI) are innovative Human-Machine Systems for recovery, monitoring, communication and enhancement. OpenViBE is a free and open-source software platform dedicated to designing, testing and using BMI. It can be used to acquire, filter, process, classify and visualize brain signals in real time. OpenViBE is used by multiple people and laboratories all over the world and has become a major BMI platform. Based on the success of two previous workshops done in Europe (BCI conference 2014, Graz, Austria) and USA (BCI meeting 2016, Pacific grove, CA), this third workshop will be a new opportunity for the OpenViBE community to meet, exchange and further collaborate, this time in Asia. This workshop will consist of a mix of tutorials, scientific presentations and discussions between users, targeted at both beginners who want to discover OpenViBE or people already using OpenViBE who would like to learn more about the software and its numerous possibilities. This workshop should be very relevant for IEEE SMC, and in particular for the BMI workshop within this conference, as numerous BMI workshop participants may be using the software or could be interested in using it for their research and development works.

Note to participants: To better benefit from the workshop and the step-by-step tutorial, please come with your laptop and OpenViBE installed on it (see this link), so you can practice during the workshop.
