University Hospital Basel, Switzerland
This comprehensive course on presurgical fMRI and DTI has a long tradition, is very practically oriented, conducted by renowned experts, and now held for the first time under patronage of the Organization for Human Brain Mapping (OHBM). The program has been designed to attract physicians, neuroscientists and other professionals working in the field. The number of participants is limited to ensure personal instruction, supervision and practical training. The course is accredited with 12 CME points.
Friday covers the full theoretical background relevant to the topic with lectures and interactive seminars. There is a late arrival option after lunch for those participants who are familiar with the neuroanatomical, neurophysiological and methodological background. The afternoon is dedicated to presurgical applications.
Saturday is dedicated to practical aspects and training. After detailed instructions, the participants are split into smaller groups, conduct actual measurements on our high-end 3T-imager (Siemens PRISMA) and evaluate clinical data sets under close expert supervision. You may bring your own cases.
Finally, we offer a course dinner for all participants where a reservation is required. We will assist you with travel and accommodation issues on request.

The ultimate goal is to understand the causes of dyslexia and improve detection protocols and remediation techniques. IWORDD will take place from Thursday May 5th to Saturday May 7th 2016 in Bilbao, Spain. The workshop is split into two parts, each of which should be registered for separately. In order to secure your place for this event, please REGISTER as soon as possible as the NUMBER OF PLACES IS LIMITED. CONFERENCE PROGRAM. Part One: IWORDD -- Theoretical Perspectives (May 5 and 6) For each of the two first days, the invited experts will discuss their perspectives on one hot theoretical issue of great interest for the current state of the field. More particularly, this edition of IWORDD will focus on featuring research investigating reading and its disorders using cutting-edge neuroimaging approaches. The invited speakers will address the issue of the neurogenetic bases of developmental dyslexia (May 5) and of the remediation of developmental dyslexia and the related brain changes (May 6). The following renowned speakers in the field will contribute to the high quality of IWORDD via a dynamic format centered around keynote lectures and round tables.

The Brain Connectivity Workshop (BCW) is a well-established and prestigious workshop series, which has been held annually in Europe, USA, Australia and Asia for the last 14 years (http://www.brain-connectivity-workshop.org/). BCW attracts every year participants working in cognitive, computational and clinical neurosciences. The discussions are centered on all themes around brain connectivity including structural and functional imaging, modeling, brain function and clinics. BCW is highly influential in the field due to the traditionally high quality of speakers and a long track record of innovation. For instance, both, the Connectome and The Virtual Brain have risen from the BCW community. The typical BCW format —a first educational day of lectures held by international authorities in their fields, followed by two days of short talks with ample time for discussion articulated in thematically focused sessions provides a unique forum for creativity, controversy and brainstorming. BCW 2016 will focus on four themes, perturbing the brain, mapping the brain, and the dynamic brain in function (cognition) and dysfunction (epilepsy). One of the traditional highlights will be the Rolf Kötter lecture, which celebrates the legacy of one of the pioneers of connectomics and founders of the BCW series. This year’s confirmed speakers include Karl Friston, Charles Schroeder, Vince Calhoun, Ivan Soltesz, Olaf Sporns, Sean Hill, Michael Breakspear, Claudius Gros, Randy McIntosh, Bill Stacey, Fabrice Bartolomei, Martin Apitius-Hofmann, Esther Krook Magnuson, Lionel Naccache, Michael Wibral, Marc Goodfellow, Stephan Van Gils, Jorge Martinez-Gonzalez, Pierre-Herve Luppi, Gregor Thut and Patrick Chauvel.
Pattern Recognition in Neuroimaging (PRNI) Workshop
Wednesday, June 22, 2016- Friday, June 24, 2016
Pattern recognition techniques have become an important tool for the analysis of data from various neuroimaging domains, e.g., MEG, EEG, structural MRI, functional MRI, diffusion MRI, functional connectivity analysis. Pattern recognition techniques are helping to elucidate normal and abnormal brain function in cognition and perception, or the anatomical and functional architecture of the brain. They are starting to be used as biomarkers for diagnosis and for personalized medicine and as a scientific tool to decipher neural mechanisms underlying human cognition. The International Workshop on Pattern Recognition in Neuroimaging (PRNI) aims to: (1) foster dialogue between developers and users of cutting-edge analysis techniques in order to find matches between analysis techniques and neuroscientific questions; (2) showcase recent methodological advances in pattern recognition algorithms for neuroimaging analysis; and (3) identify challenging neuroscientific questions in need of new analysis approaches. 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. This includes removing all information on the authors and their affiliations as well as citing own work in a passive voice. Non-anonymous submissions will be rejected without review. Each submission will be reviewed by a minimum of two reviewers. Manuscripts have to be submitted by March 18th, 2016, 11.59 pm (PST) via the submission website. Accepted submissions will be assigned either to one of the oral sessions or one of the poster sessions, depending on the reviewers' evaluation. All accepted submissions will be included in the workshop proceedings. Every accepted submission has to be presented at the workshop by one of the paper's authors

Campus Biotech / Chemin des Mines 9, 1202 Genève, Switzerland
Please join us in Geneva, Switzerland June 24-25, 2016, for the next annual Brain Stimulation and Imaging Meeting. This satellite meeting will be held before the Organization for Human Brain Mapping (OHBM) annual meeting.
BrainSTIM 2015 in Honolulu was one of the first ever meetings to focus on the combination of brain imaging and stimulation. This meeting had over 120 attendees, six keynote speakersand 17 speakers in four oral sessions derived from submitted abstracts. Based on the success of this initial meeting, BrainSTIM 2016 will combine keynote lectures by leaders in the fields of imaging and stimulation, talks selected from submitted abstracts, poster sessions and other opportunities to network and learn about this growing area of research. The meeting is meant to inform and educate everyone who may be interested in these topics, from novices to experts. The combination of brain stimulation and imaging may lead to better tests of causal hypotheses of brain function, a better understanding of the neural mechanisms of cognition and the mechanisms of brain stimulation, new methods to optimize brain stimulation and better treatments for brain and mental illness among other benefits.
Who: Keynote Speakers will be Leonardo Cohen, Alvaro Pascual-Leone, Michael Fox, Holly Lisanby (pending travel approval) and others. Additional speakers will be selected by committee from the pool of submitted abstracts. Abstracts not selected for oral presentations can be presented as posters. BrainSTIM 2015 is being organized jointly by Prof. Vincent Clark at the University of New Mexico and by Prof. Christoph Michel at l'Université de Genève.
