2021 Virtual EEGLAB Workshop

Note: If you are an attendee, please refer to the link you have received by email which contains the latest program and links to the online event.

From June 14 to June 18, the 30th EEGLAB workshop will be held online in a virtual brain conference site on GatherTown. The first day will be free for all and will feature lectures and social events. The workshop will feature lectures on how to process data using EEGLAB, including scripting and the use of multiple plug-ins. Parallel sessions will discuss specific topics, particularly wearable EEG, deep learning and EEG, connectivity analysis, and EEG.


We are looking forward to meeting you online …

Below is a still-provisional program for the 2021 Virtual EEGLAB Workshop (suggestions/requests welcome). The workshop will be held online, with social networking possible in the GatherTown environment. All hours are shown in Pacific Daylight Savings Time (PDT), and, in parentheses, Central European Summer Time (CEST). The time has been arranged to accommodate North and South American as well as Western European and African time zone waking hours. ‘Night owl’ participants from elsewhere are welcome as well. A later event will be planned to better accommodate Asian time zones.

Note: has a free public sample site for learning how to get around, attend events, and meet people in - we highly recommend you try out their live walkthrough before the Workshop begins.

Time zone: All the times below are shown in California (Pacific Daylight) Time. Click on one of the time zone boxes below to select your time zone (we are in process of adding more zones).
