Call For Papers

Deep learning algorithms, with their capacity to identify non-linear patterns and relationships within vast datasets, have revolutionized our ability to decipher the complexities of the human brain and are thus being increasingly used in contemporary neuroscience research. Indeed, the intricate nature of neural processes calls for the use of advanced analytical tools, and deep learning provides a novel framework for extracting meaningful insights from neuroscientific data. Moreover, this trend has recently encouraged the adoption of Graph Neural Networks (GNNs) to analyze and understand how the pattern of connectivity in biological neural systems might account for human brain function and behavior. Indeed, the brain graph is a natural fit for GNN models, since they can preserve graph topological properties while learning to perform a given task.
This workshop aims to explore the integration of deep learning techniques with neuro-heuristic approaches for the advanced analysis of brain data, with a particular focus on discussing how deep learning can be used to enhance our understanding of the brain as a complex self-organizing system, how its topological properties drive the interplay between sensory processing, sensorimotor integration, and cognition, and how these properties are affected by brain diseases.
The primary goal will be to encourage discussion about the potential and the limitations of novel application of deep learning techniques in the analysis of brain data and explore the transformative impact of deep learning for tackling challenging questions in neuroscience research.
All accepted papers will be published in the Springer LNCS series. Read all the details in the call for papers on the workshop website:
