The International BCI Award, endowed with 6,000 USD, is one of the top accolades in BCI research. The Award was created to recognize outstanding and innovative research in the field of Brain-Computer Interfaces. The BCI Award Foundation organizes the annual BCI Award and guarantees scientific objectivity by assigning an independent and international jury assembled with world-leading BCI experts who work with invasive and non-invasive BCI in both research and clinical environments to judge the submitted projects. The BCI Award Foundation is a non-profit organization founded in 2017 in Austria, chaired by Christoph Guger and Gerwin Schalk.

The submission deadline is 1st June 2019.
