Call for Participation: IEEE P2731, Standard for a Unified Terminology for Brain-Computer Interfaces

June 13, 2019

Visit the P2731 – Standard for a Unified Terminology for Brain-Computer Interfaces website

IEEE Standards Association (IEEE SA) invites your participation in the work group for IEEE P2731™, Standard for a Unified Terminology for Brain-Computer Interfaces.

Why Get Involved

A Brain-Computer Interface is usually formed by assembling several modules, some of them devoted to analyze brain signals, whereas some others responsible to translate the analyzed signals into commands toward the environment.

Presently, there is confusion in the description of Brain-Computer Interfaces because there are different visions relative to these modules. This confusion can cause misunderstandings or even make it impossible to compare different systems and its performances creating difficulty in determining which one is more appropriate for a certain application.

The standard will establish terminologies and definitions used in the description of Brain-Computer Interfaces.

Who Should Participate
