After the positive responses to the last event, first time held as a conference, we decided to keep the style and expand the event also with satellite events, since we want to provide a platform for scientific exchange within the Brain-Computer Interface research community. Here, researchers can present their own work either in the form of a talk or as a poster. For this purpose, we encouraged participants to submit papers, which were peer-reviewed and are published in this ebook. The BCI conferences held in Graz, Austria, may be considered to be a European initiative in the field of EEG-based Brain-Computer Interfaces that contributes to a stronger orientation towards scientific cooperation.
We are lucky that outstanding experts in the field, Dr. Scott Makeig (Swartz Center for Computational Neuroscience, Institute for Neural Computation, University of California San Diego), Prof. Nick Ramsey (UMC Utrecht, Rudolf Magnus Institute, Department of Neurology and Neurosurgery), and Manfred Halver (FFG – Austrian Research Promotion Agency, European and International Programmes) were able to accept our invitation to present keynote addresses at the conference.
We gratefully acknowledge the support of the Graz University of Technology for providing the facilities and thank the staff of the Institute of Knowledge Discovery, BCI Lab, for their dedicated assistance.
