FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS

4th International Workshop on Pattern Recognition in NeuroImaging (PRNI
2014)

June 4-6 2014, Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems, Tübingen,
Germany

Website: http://www.prni.org

Multivariate analysis of neuroimaging data has gained ground very
rapidly in the community over the past few years, leading to impressive
results in cognitive and clinical neuroscience. Pattern recognition and
machine learning conferences regularly feature a neuroimaging workshop,
while neuroscientific meetings dedicate sessions to new approaches to
neural data analysis. Thus, a rich two-way flow has been established
between disciplines. It is the goal of the 4th International Workshop on
Pattern Recognition in NeuroImaging to continue facilitating exchange of
ideas between scientific communities, with a particular interest in new
approaches to the interpretation of neural data driven by new
developments in pattern recognition and machine learning.

TOPICS OF INTEREST

PRNI welcomes original papers on multivariate analysis of neuroimaging
data, using invasive and non-invasive imaging modalities, including but
not limited to the following topics:

* Learning from neuroimaging data
- Classification algorithms for brain-state decoding
- Optimisation and regularisation
- Bayesian analysis of neuroimaging data
- Connectivity and causal inference
- Combination of different data modalities
- Efficient algorithms for large-scale data analysis

* Interpretability of models and results
- High-dimensional data visualisation
- Multivariate and multiple hypothesis testing
- Summarisation/presentation of inference results

* Applications
- Disease diagnosis and prognosis
- Real-time decoding of brain states
- Analysis of resting-state and task-based data

KEYNOTE SPEAKERS

John-Dylan Haynes
Klaus-Robert Müller
Russ Poldrack

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Authors should prepare full papers with a maximum length of 4 pages
(double-column, IEEE style, PDF) for review. Reviews will be
double-blind, i.e. submissions have to be anonymized.

PROCEEDINGS

Proceedings will be published by Conference Publishing Services in
electronic format. They will be submitted for inclusion in IEEExplore
and IEEE CS Digital Library online repositories, and submitted for
indexing in IET INSPEC, EI Compendex (Elsevier), Thomson ISI, and others.

BEST STUDENT PAPER AWARD

A small number of papers will be selected for the Best Student Paper
Award. To be eligible the paper’s first author must be a student, and
the student must agree to present the paper at the workshop. Awardees
will receive a travel allowance.

IMPORTANT DATES

Paper submission deadline: 7th of March, 2014
Acceptance notification: 4th of April, 2014
Workshop: June 4-6, 2014

VENUE

The workshop will be held on the campus of the Max Planck Institute in
Tübingen, Germany. Tübingen is a picturesque medieval university town,
and can easily be reached by public transportation from Stuttgart
airport (STR). Accommodation is available on or close to campus. A
pre-conference barbecue will be held on June 3, 2014.
