Break: 4:15 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.

Session 2: 4:30 p.m. - 5:15 p.m.



The breakout sessions will be structured around the Sense, Assess and Augment framework with 10 sessions dedicated to each element.

• Sense: Examines current and emerging technologies that provide information about physiological or biochemical measurements and indicators relating to brain health and performance
• Assess: Focuses on big data analytic approaches to extract meaningful information from the data gathered by sensing activities
• Augment: Showcases strategies, techniques and technology to optimize performance, health and readiness based on the “sense” and “assess” findings

Sessions will emphasize cutting-edge research, technological developments, emerging applications, and commercialization opportunities.
