Date: September 11, 2021
Workshop of the 3rd Neuroergonomics Conference (NEC’21)
Time: 14:00 – 18:00 CET
Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI) are innovative Human-Computer Interaction Systems for recovery, monitoring, evaluation and communication and enhancement. OpenViBE is a free and open-source software platform dedicated to designing, testing and using BCI in real-time. 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 platform for real-time BCI as well as for real-time neuroscience in general, including for neuroergonomics. Based on the success of the previous workshops done in Europe (BCI conference 2014, Graz, Austria), USA (BCI meeting 2016, Pacific grove, CA), and Asia (IEEE SMC 2018, Miyazaki, Japan), this fourth workshop will be a new opportunity for the OpenViBE community to meet, exchange and further collaborate. It will also be a perfect opportunity to enable people from the Neuroergonomics community not yet familiar with OpenViBE to discover and learn about OpenViBE. 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 evolutions. For this specific workshop, we will notably show how OpenViBE can be used for Neuroergonomics research & applications, e.g., for clinical BCI design, BCI connection to Augmented and Virtual Realities (AR/VR) or mental state (workload, attention) induction and estimation.
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.
To practice, you will also need EEG data, so please download these files: EEG data GDF files.
