BCI Meets Robotics: Challenging Issues in Brain-Computer Interaction
and Shared Control
November, 19-20, 2007
KU Leuven, Belgium

Last years have witnessed advances in Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI),
but how far is this new field from controlling robotics devices?

The goal of the workshop is to introduce recent advances in
brain-computer interfaces on the one hand, and on shared control and
task recognition on the other. This workshop will give a new perspective
on how humans and robots cooperate to fulfill a challenging task. The
concept of adaptive shared autonomy will be introduced and its relevance
for BCI applications will be illustrated.

The presentations will consist of a series of invited talks and poster
presentations. Also, the European MAIA project will report their
achievements in non-invasive brain-controlled wheelchairs.

Posters will be selected depending on relevance to the workshop topic,
quality, and novelty.

Abstract Submission

Please send a one-page abstract (including figures and references, no less
than 200 words) to workshop at maia-project.org

Posters will be selected depending on relevance to the workshop topic, 
and novelty.
