The CoBCoM Winter School Workshop, running from November Monday 20th to Friday 24th, 2017 is targeted at graduate students, early career and senior researchers interested and working in structural and functional brain connectivities via multi imaging modalities including diffusion MRI, functional MRI, MEG, and EEG.

Held at the Antibes – Juan les Pins Conference Center, in the heart of the French Riviera, the Winter School Workshop will offer several tutorials and advanced lectures from leading researchers and experts on computational brain connectivity mapping. In addition, it will include sessions dedicated to poster presentations from participants.

Spanning five days, the workshop will begin with introductory talks and tutorials on structural and functional connectivity using dMRI, fMRI, EEG, and MEG. As we move through the week, more advanced topics will be covered, including

  • Advanced signal acquisition and modeling;
  • Whole-brain connectivity-based parcellation;
  • Riemannian and Finslerian geometry;
  • High order tensors and invariants;
  • Microstructure imaging;
  • Advanced fiber tractography;
  • Connectome analysis including topological and spatial features of brain networks;
  • Model-based neuroanatomy;
  • Computational topology for brain imaging;
  • Dynamic network analysis;
  • Clinical research;

Software like Dipy, ExploreDTI, Fibernavigator, OpenMEEG, Phantomas, and Scikit-learn will also illustrate parts of the lectures and additional advanced mathematical concepts and tools will be presented together with their applications to brain imaging.

This Winter School Workshop will be an exciting opportunity for graduate students to learn and exchange about the current trends in computational models of brain connectivity, building dynamic connectomes, and meet the invited experts and leading researchers spearheading the field.

Have a look at the program for more details and please note that a particular effort has been paid to welcome you to participate by offering an affordable registration package including admission to all seminars, all lunches and refreshments, and a wine reception and formal dinner.
