Thirty-third EEGLAB Workshop

Aspet France - 3-7 of July 2023 The 33rd EEGLAB Workshop will take place the Bois Perche about 2 hours by chartered bus from Toulouse. Participants will be expected to bring laptops with MATLAB installed so as to be able to participate in the practical sessions. The tutorial workshop will introduce and demonstrate the use of the EEGLAB software environment and EEGLAB-linked tools for performing advanced analysis of EEG and related data, with detailed method expositions and practical exercises. There will be a poster session for participants and an excursion.

Registration and cost

Space at the workshop is limited to about 40 to 50 participants. Participants will be accepted based on their academic background, motivation and submission for the poster session. Recent posters prepared for other conferences are welcome.

To reimburse travel expenses of Workshop faculty and facilities rental, costs for the workshop will be as follows:

Registration cost is 300 Euros for students and post-docs, 500 Euros for faculty and other professionals. These registration costs include conference space rental, all coffee breaks, and a short excursion. When registering, participants are also expected to pay for accommodation and all meals to the Bois Perche retreat center (a total of 470 euros). Because of a grant from the CNRS, registration (although not accommodation) is free for participants from French laboratories, while through a CRNS grant accommodations are also free for CNRS employees.


Warning: This workshop is not aimed for real beginners in EEG and MATLAB - such persons would be wasting much of their time. Some parts of the workshop are fairly technical. The main topics will be advanced methods for analyzing EEG and allied behavioral data, methods including spectral decomposition, independent component analysis, inverse source analysis, information flow, etc.. Some other parts of the workshop will require basic MATLAB scripting capabilities. Some basic web resources for learning MATLAB are discussed below. Beginners may also gain experience using MATLAB by applying the steps discussed in the EEGLAB wiki tutorial to the sample dataset which you can freely download.

MATLAB tutorial

IMPORTANT NOTE: A portion of the workshop will be dedicated to writing EEGLAB scripts – Not being able to understand MATLAB syntax will mean you will miss out on a large portion of the workshop.

If you are new to MATLAB or need a refresher, please consult the material on the Getting started with MATLAB page

MATLAB support

MathWorks is pleased to provide a special MATLAB license to workshop participants for use during the workshop. The EEGLAB team thanks Vijay Iyer, Neuroscience Community Liaison at MathWorks for arranging this support to the workshop from MathWorks . License information coming soon.

Workshop Program (with corresponding PDFs)

Material for workshop tutorials (including EEGLAB) will be made available on USB keys. Presented slides will be made available during the workshop. You only need to bring a laptop with MATLAB installed.
