*NIPS 2011 Satellite Meeting on*


*Dec 11, 2011. Carmen de la Victoria, Granada*

*One-day workshop funded by CEI BIOTIC GENIL*

 *The workshop Causal Graphs: Linking Brain Structure to Function will take
place in Granada, one day before the start of NIPS
This one-day workshop will be held on Dec 11 at the Carmen de la
Victoria<http://carmendelavictoria.ugr.es/?lang=en>in the Albaycin,
the old center of Granada, Spain. Due to space limitations,
attendance will be limited to only 70 participants.

*The workshop will discuss recent investigations combining causality
measures and network analysis methods in Neuroscience. The main goal is to
create cross-talk and encourage a dialogue between these research fields,
discussing potential incompatibilities, advantages and disadvantages of one
approach over the other to address important nonscientific questions. *

* *

*This is an open call for researchers who would like to present their latest
results in two possible formats: 20-min talk or poster presentation.
Applicants are invited to submit an abstract of max 250 words describing the
main motivation, methods and outcomes of their research. Applications should
be sent to causal.graphs at gmail.com and should also indicate Name,
Institution and Email addresses of all co-authors. Applications with a
direct Neuroscience background connecting methods to data are strongly

* *

*Possible topics include: Network Analysis Methods, Causality, Information
Theory, Computational Neuroimaging, Neural Connectivity. *


*Submission deadline (both talks and posters) October 15th, 2011*

*Acceptance decisions mailed out on October 20th, 2011*
