By Meryem Ayse Yucel.

We are happy to announce that the registration for the Educational Course preceding the fNIRS 2020 Conference is now open! The two-day course will be held at Boston University’s Kilachand Center over the weekend of October 10-11, 2020.

This course is intended for both beginner and advanced level fNIRS researchers with a variety of mini-courses designed by the experts in the field. The program will start with a 2-hour introductory lecture open to all registrants. The lecture will then be followed by mini-courses that cover a variety of exciting topics such as hands-on demonstration of existing and novel NIRS technologies, hands-on fNIRS data analysis using various toolboxes, standardization, challenges in the field and more! To learn more, please see the syllabi of the mini-courses here (https://fnirs2020.org/program/courses/mini-courses/) and our tentative schedule here (https://fnirs2020.org/program/schedule/ ).

We encourage you to go visit the website for more details! Please note that due to the limited capacity of each course, registrants will be asked to provide their order of preference among 23 courses during the registration process. The applicants will be assigned to their courses of preference on a first come, first served basis. While the schedule is subject to changes based on registrant preferences and space availability, depending on the number of applicants, we will make our best to repeat the high-demand courses in the final schedule. We are looking forward to seeing you all at fNIRS 2020!
