Research Webinars and Educational Tutorials

By Clare Elwell.

We are setting up online activities to keep our community connected in the absence of face to face meetings.

Felix Scholkmann is chairing our new Research Webinar committee who are planning a regular series of research talks from a broad range of speakers to discuss recent findings and future directions for fNIRS. We are particularly looking forward to hearing from early career researchers in this programme.

The Educational Committee, chaired by Judit Gervain, are developing a syllabus of online Educational Tutorials covering a range of topics and aimed at those wishing to enhance their knowledge in particular technical and application aspects of the technology. To enable interactive content some of these sessions will have a limited number of attendees.

These events will initially be scheduled to take place at 3pm Central Europe (9am Eastern US, 10pm Japan) to try and accommodate different time zones as best we can. With the exception of the first events (which can be thought of as tasters) these events will only be open to SfNIRS members. Our intention is to record the content make it available on the members only section of our website.
