Educational Courses Schedule

This year, preceding the meeting, we are planning an expanded educational workshop held on Saturday October 9, 2021 and Sunday October 10, 2021.

Classes will take place on the Boston University Campus near the main conference venue.

Educational course registration

Here is a tentative schedule of the educational program:

The schedule is subject to changes based on registrant preferences and space availability.

We will start Saturday morning with the fNIRS introduction that has been a traditional part of the SfNIRS pre-conference educational course, see tentative syllabus.

The regular lectures will be followed on Saturday afternoon and all day on Sunday by parallel sessions to provide mini-courses and hands-on demonstrations on more focused topics.

We are anticipating that 150-200 people will sign up for the educational workshop. Space will be limited, plan to register early.

While we will do our best to prioritize participant course preferences, because of limited capacity of several courses, we cannot warrant anyone assignment to specific mini-courses. We expect some courses will fill up quickly and assignment will be based on first come first served.
