About this Event

Overarching Aim of the Meeting:

This meeting aims to explore how pediatric brain-computer interfaces (BCI) evolved in 2020 and provide a platform to discuss directions for peds BCI in 2021.

Meeting Specific Goals:

  • Connect the BCI-CAN network to new innovation drivers in pediatric BCI from around the world.
  • Develop a plan for ongoing funding streams and sustainment of the network.
  • Explore opportunities to collaborate, including research projects, equipment sharing/development, application sharing/development, and trainee engagement.

Identify pathways to connect and incorporate additional clinical expertise.

  • Refining approaches for clinical implementation, assessments, skill acquisition and motivation
  • Explore the benefits and challenges of BCI as an access option/device in the community
  • Clarify roads toward responsible data collection, sharing, and publishing

Key Details:

  • Meeting will take place on the Airmeet virtual platform, enabling social conversations at designated ‘virtual tables’. Tables are limited to 8 participants maximum.
  • Social sessions will include two simultaneous activities:
  1. Functional Connectivity: Meet the Centers. Each site in the BCI-CAN network will ‘host’ a table on Airmeet, where participants can rotate around to ‘join’ each table and talk with representatives from that site. Sites are encouraged to cycle host responsibility, so all team members get a chance to network with other sites.
  2. Quick Synapse: Network Speed Meet & Greet. Using the built-in ‘speed networking’ function of Airmeet, participants will be randomly paired together to chat for 5 minutes. Pre-defined starter questions will be provided to get conversation going!
  • Trainees are invited to participate in the Trainee Data Blitz! Please indicate in your registration your interest and supply a 2-3 sentence summary of your work to present.
