I’m writing you to inform about an event that I am co-organizing in October in Verona (Italy) and that may be of interest to you or someone in your group. After the 1st successful edition of last year, we are pleased to announce that we will be running the second edition of the School on Brain Connectomics from 9th to 13th October.
Connectomics is one of the hottest inter-disciplinary topics today: it links computer science and engineering with life sciences and medicine. Connection networks grow over functional (fMRI, ASL, EEG, MEG) and structural (diffusion weighted MRI) data and the integration of the two in both static and dynamic conditions would shed light on the way our brain actually works. The goal of the School on Brain Connectomics is to gather the knowledge in the different fields that are touched by these topics providing the students a comprehensive view of this research area as well as awareness about the cutting-edge methodological, experimental and clinical aspects that are involved. Connectomics bridges signal and image processing with applied mathematics, graph theory and machine learning. This year we are happy to host 14 international speakers that are leading scientists in the respective fields.
