32nd International Conference of Alzheimer's Disease International
Wednesday, April 26, 2017- Saturday, April 29, 2017- All Day
Kyoto International Conference Center (ICC)
The annual conference of Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI) is taking place in Kyoto, Japan 26 – 29 April 2017 and hosted by Alzheimer’s Association Japan. The conference is one of the world’s largest conferences on Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, featuring a range of international keynote speakers and a high standard of scientific and non-scientific content. The conference is taking place at the Kyoto International Conference Center (ICC) which continues to be a leader in Japanese conventions and a base for disseminating information and values from Kyoto to the wider world. Japan is easily accessible from the UK and continental Europe with over one hundred direct flights every week to four of Japan's 22 International Airports. Although Kyoto does not have its own airport, travellers can get to the city via Kansai International Airport and Osaka International Airport
The Brain Forum brings together world leaders in science, technology, healthcare and business to advance our understanding of how the brain works and to accelerate the application of that understanding to human needs. Key themes include: Complexity of the mind Brain technologies and innovations Brain development and human performance Brain disorders
Neuroimaging in Parkinson’s Disease and Related Disorders Symposium
Friday, June 9, 2017- Saturday, June 10, 2017
University of Calgary, Alberta, Canada
This course features an internationally renowned faculty of researchers, scientists and clinicians who will present on advances in neuroimaging techniques to understand the pathophysiology of Parkinson’s disease (PD) and related movement disorders. During two exciting days, the course will cover different imaging techniques such as: positron emission tomography (PET), single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
Monday, June 19, 2017- Friday, June 23, 2017- All Day
War Memorial Gym, University of British Columbia, Vancouver
We are pleased to announce the2017 FSL Course, to be held at the War Memorial Gym, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada (19-23 June). This is the week before theOHBM conferencein Vancouver.
This intensive 5-day course covers both the theory and practice of functional and structural brain image analysis. Background concepts and the practicalities of analyses are taught in detailed lectures; these are interleaved with hands-on practical sessions where attendees learn how to carry out analysis for themselves on real data, with one computer provided for every two attendees (with attendees to work in pairs). After completing the course, attendees should be able to analyse their own FMRI and MRI data sets.
2017 Human Connectome Project Course: Exploring the Human Connectome
Monday, June 19, 2017- Friday, June 23, 2017
Djavad Mowafaghian Centre for Brain Health, University of British Columbia, Vancouver
This 5-day intensive course will provide training in the acquisition, analysis and visualization of freely-available data from the Human Connectome Project using methods and informatics tools developed by the WU-Minn-Oxford HCP consortium. Participants will learn how to acquire, analyze, visualize, and interpret data from four major MR modalities (structural MR, resting-state fMRI, diffusion imaging, task-evoked fMRI) plus magnetoencephalography (MEG) and extensive behavioral data. Lectures and labs will provide grounding in neurobiological as well as methodological issues involved in interpreting multimodal data, and will span the range from single-voxel/vertex to brain network analysis approaches.
The course is open to graduate students, postdocs, faculty, and industry participants. The course is aimed at both new and current users of HCP data, methods, and tools, and will cover both basic and advanced topics. Prior experience in human neuroimaging or in computational analysis of brain networks is desirable, preferably including familiarity with FSL and Freesurfer software.
7th International Workshop on Pattern Recognition in Neuroimagining
Wednesday, June 21, 2017- Friday, June 23, 2017- All Day
New College Residences at the University of Toronto, Canada
Pattern recognition techniques have become an important tool for neuroimaging data analysis, helping to elucidate normal and abnormal brain function and identify biomarkers for diagnosis and personalized medicine. The International Workshop on Pattern Recognition in Neuroimaging (PRNI) aims to: (1) foster dialogue between developers and users of cutting-edge analysis techniques; (2) showcase recent methodological advances in pattern recognition algorithms for neuroimaging analysis; and (3) identify challenging neuroscientific questions in need of new analysis approaches.
Thursday, June 22, 2017- Saturday, June 24, 2017- All Day
Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada.
The 2017 OHBM Hackathon is an official satellite event of the 23rd Annual Meeting of the Organization of Human Brain Mapping (OHBM) that is organized by the OHBM "Open Science" Special Interest Group. The goal of the hackathon is to bring together researchers with disparate backgrounds from the OHBM community to collaborate on open science projects in neuroimaging.
The goal of this training workshop is to introduce new users to the software and to provide more in-depth training in its use to those who may already have some experience with BrainSuite. We will provide overviews of the different stages of processing and will have several experienced users on-hand to assist you in learning to use the software.
Saturday, September 2, 2017- Tuesday, September 5, 2017- All Day
The ECNP Congress is Europe's largest meeting on applied and translational neuroscience. Annually it brings together between 4,000 and 6,000 psychiatrists, neuroscientists, neurologists and psychologists from around the world to discuss the latest developments in the science and treatment of disorders of the brain. Spanning the spectrum of human mood, behaviour, cognition and emotion – from basic science to clinical care – the ECNP Congress is Europe's premier showcase for new research, treatments and technologies in applied brain science.
