**********************************

Dr. Frank Zanow gave a talk entitled “The future of pervasive neuromonitoring“ (about 5 participants) on 17.06.2019 at a Workshop hold in Hongkong, China.

**********************************

Prof. Gunnar Naulaers gave a talk entitled “Neonatal brain monitoring: past – present – future” (about 40 participants) at the Neonatal brain monitoring workshop in Leuven, Belgium on 27.05.2019.

**********************************

In the framework of the 3-annual exhibit “Mile of Technology” / “Lange Nacht der Technik” at the Technische Universität Ilmenau on 11.05.2019, live demonstrations on various bio signal acquisition technologies including electroencephalography were performed by project fellows of the INFANS project, using dry electrode technology, visual stimulation as well as online artefact rejection and source reconstruction. The future requirements, advantages and potential new applications of novel dry biosignal electrodes for the use within the INFANS project have been demonstrated and discussed showing several prototypes of previous projects. Impacts on current and future research were highlighted in relation to other ongoing projects at the Institute of Biomedical Engineering and Informatics (BMTI). The event was open to a broad public audience of more than 15 000 visitors,  including families, school and university students, scientists, media representatives and journalists. To summarize, the feedback on the research and education at the BMTI as well as in the frame of the INFANS project was very positive.
