Call For Papers

2015 International conference on Brain Informatics and Health (BIH)

Satellite symposium: Big Data Initiatives for Connectomics (30th Aug)



http://biomedic.doc.ic.ac.uk/bih-symposium/



Brain connectivity network analysis has the potential to improve understanding of neural processes and neurological diseases. Large-scale imaging projects such as the (developing) Human Connectome are collecting vast imaging databases of brain connectivity data for young adults, neonates and fetuses. Using these studies to build a common brain connectome within a population would allow us to identify abnormal connectivity patterns and link them with environmental, cognitive or genetic knowledge.



At the era of Big Data and High Performance Computing, large scientific datasets made available to the public must be accompanied by original and efficient methods to process them, store them reliably and make them available to the widest number of scientists. This requires the development of tools and methods that not only allow sensible analysis on the single subject level, but also allow robust group-wise analysis.



** TOPICS OF INTEREST **



This symposium is looking for abstracts relating to:



Network construction and evaluation:



Group-wise frameworks for cortical segmentation and network modelling
Large scale spatio/temporal models of the brain
Bayesian/causal modelling using big data
Comparisons of functional and structural connectivity.
Big data mining of high dimensional connectivity networks
Predictive modelling and inference using connectome databases.


Data storage & handling of large connectome datasets:

File formats
Efficient tools for sharing and processing.
Brain mapping and visualisation of high-dimensional connectivity data


** SUBMISSION GUIDELINES **



Authors should prepare short abstracts of no longer than 500 words (including references but excluding figure captions). Abstracts must include a complete author list and title (including all words critical for subject index). Do not bold or italicize your full title. Submission should be sent to (https://wi-lab.com/cyberchair/2015/bih15/scripts/submit.php?subarea=S7&undisplay_detail=1&wh=/cyberchair/2015/bih15/scripts/ws_submit.php).



A selection of the best abstracts will be presented as talks (15 minutes with 5 minutes questions). All remaining accepted abstracts would be presented as posters.



** IMPORTANT DATES **


Abstract submission deadline: June 21st

Notification of Acceptance: June 28st

Camera ready abstracts July 7th

Symposium 30th August
