Educational Workshop

List of minicourses

Subject to course demand, course delivery may be repeated over the two days of the workshop. Workshop attendees will be able to select multiple courses during the workshop. The timetable will be available closer to the event and will be built to maximize allocation and minimize attendees’ conflicts with their preferred minicourses.

Registration closes on 7 July 2024. Registration is based on first come, first served.

Below is the list of all minicourses available for the Educational Workshop.

Most Toolbox mini-courses require you to bring your own laptop with Matlab installed. Matlab is a proprietary software, and licenses will not be provided. If you do not have a copy of MATLAB, please download and install a free trial version prior to the course

In addition, some minicourses require specific software packages. Links to download these free software will be provided on each course webpage. Make sure to have all the required software installed on your computer before the meeting. If needed, we will provide help with installation on Saturday morning in parallel with the general introduction to the fNIRS course. Software will not be installed during minicourses.
