Pre-Conference Workshops

The Pre-Conference Workshops will be held on Sunday, March 17, on the day of the Welcome Reception. We plan to start at 10 a.m., although some workshops may start a little later - we will let you know in time. There will be plenty of time to attend the workshop, change (if you wish), and stroll to the reception. Workshop capacity is limited and places are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Hyperscanning with mobile EEG workshop - Demonstration and data acquisition of multiple participants in social contexts (max. 25 participants)

Discover the world of hyperscanning with mobile EEG in this comprehensive workshop designed for individuals interested in advancing their knowledge of EEG technology. This session will provide a deep dive into the principles and applications of hyperscanning, a technique that enables simultaneous recording of brain activity from multiple participants in social settings. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage in hands-on activities, learning how to set up mobile EEG devices, design experiments, and acquire data in social cognition context.
Throughout the workshop, participants will explore the intricacies of analyzing inter-brain dynamics and understanding the neural underpinnings of social interactions. The session is tailored for researchers, students, and professionals keen on exploring the possibilities of EEG technology in studying collective brain processes. By the end of the workshop, attendees will be equipped with the skills and knowledge to conduct their own hyperscanning studies, opening new avenues for research in social neuroscience and beyond.

Participant requirements: No prior knowledge is necessary.

Technical and experimental design considerations for integrating fNIRS and EEG (max. 25 participants)

In the study of human brain function, simultaneaous multimodal measurements are becoming more and more common. In this context, fNIRS and EEG are getting a lot of interest. The two technologies provide complementary information and therefore together they offer a more comprehensive picture. In addition, both are non-invasive, as well as relatively affordable, and recent advancements have made it possible to develop devices that are fully wearable. The latter allows for a larger variety of experimental set-ups, including more naturalistic studies. For the same reason, this combination is very suitable for a wide range of populations.
During this workshop, we will bring attention to the potential of combined fNIRS-EEG research and will discuss key technological and methodological aspects that should be taken into consideration when designing experiments that integrate the two. We will present solutions for accurate synchronization of the two data streams, as well as placement of the sensors on the scalp. In a second part, we will also have an interactive demonstration and introduce 'Combined EEG-fNIRS optode holder', which allows positioning optodes and electrodes on the same location, while avoiding interference.


  • 10:00-10:30 Introduction to multimodel fNIRS-EEG measurements
  • 10:30-11:00 Technical and experimental design considerations
  • 11:00-11:30 Artinis fNIRS-EEG solution
  • 11:30-11:45 Break
  • 11:45-12:45 Demonstration set-up fNIRS and EEG using Artinis combined holders
  • 12:30-13:00 Q&A

Hands-on introduction to fNIRS (waiting list)

This workshop offers a condensed yet comprehensive exploration of Functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS) across three key sessions. Beginning with an insightful introduction to fNIRS, participants will gain a foundational understanding of the technology, its principles, and advantages. The second session delves into the NIRx technological spectrum for fNIRS research, covering device types and applications, preparing attendees for practical implementation. The third session focuses on hands-on experience, guiding participants through the recording and data collection process. This interactive session aims to bolster practical skills, ensuring participants are adept at setting up fNIRS equipment and addressing common challenges in reals-world scenarios.
Overall, this workshop delivers a succint yet impactful learning experience, tailored for both novices and researchers seeking to enhance their proficiency in fNIRS using NIRx products and solutions. Through a balance of theory and hands-on practice, attendees will leave with practical skills, theoretical insights, and a solid foundation to integrate fNIRS into their neuroimaging research program.

  • 10:00-11:00 Introduction to fNIRS and experimental design
  • 11:00-12:00 Introduction to NIRx products and solutions

Preregistration in Psychology - A Hands-On Workshop (waiting list)

This workshop is aimed at researchers who are relatively new to preregistration or who have unanswered questions during preregistering their studies and would like to clarify these uncertainties.The workshop will be divided into two parts:The first part will give a general introduction to preregistration and will illustrate why it is important that researchers preregister their studies, which will be supported by the latest findings from our own research. In the second part, participants will be guided through the preregistration process and will create their own preregistrations using the PRP-QUANT Template (https://doi.org/10.23668/psycharchives.4584). For this purpose, the template will first be presented in more detail. Participants will then have time to work on their own preregistrations. Afterward, participants will work in teams of two to receive peer feedback on their preregistrations.The workshop will conclude with a demonstration of the ZPID’s preregistration platform PreReg (https://prereg-psych.org/) where preregistrations can be published to complete the preregistration process.Lastly, we will discuss all further questions and open issues so that at the end of the workshop, participants will be empowered to complete their preregistrations on their own based on the input of the workshop and their peer’s feedback.    

Participant requirements: No prior knowledge is necessary. Since the participants will work on their own preregistrations in the workshop, everyone is encouraged to think about a specific project idea or research question beforehand (e.g., a project they are currently working on) that they would like to implement in their preregistration. Participants need to bring a laptop. 

Creating and publishing FAIR data - Hands-on workshop on using ZPID's data management services (max. 20 participants)

Transparency and openness in the research process are becoming increasingly important in all scientific fields - including psychology. Accordingly, researchers should not only make research results freely available, for example in the form of scientific articles (open access), but also provide research data, analysis scripts and study materials. However, the reusability of the data made available requires comprehensive research data management (RDM) on the part of the researchers. In particular, research data should be made available in accordance with the FAIR principles, meaning that research data should be Findable, Accessible, and usable (Interoperable and Reusable). In this workshop you will learn about the data management assistance system DataWiz, which you can use to plan, create and publish FAIR data objects. Specifically, you will 1) get a brief introduction to creating a data management plan and 2) learn how to document and organize your data using DataWiz. Finally, you will be familiarized with the data publication services of the Leibniz Institute for Psychology (ZPID).

Assignments for preparation: Voluntary reading assignment to prepare for the workshop: Have a look at the DataWiz User Guide: https://datawizkb.leibniz-psychology.org/index.php/project-start/
Please create an account for DataWiz if you do not already have one.

Pre-Requisites: There is no prior knowledge required on research data management or the implementation of the FAIR principles.
To participate in the hands-on sessions, please
1. bring your laptop with you
2. bring data from one of your own studies
