The course is designed for fMRI researchers who range from beginning to intermediate skill levels. It will provide those who are just getting started with fMRI a comprehensive set of tools and software to get started with your own studies, and those who are more advanced will benefit from custom code and supplements to standard analyses developed by the instructors. We cover Statistical Parametric Mapping (SPM8), independent component analyses (ICA) of fMRI data, mediation analysis of fMRI, and statistical non-parametric mapping (SnPM). We provide comprehensive coverage of all aspects of experimental design, image acquisition, image pre-processing, and analysis using the general linear model and ICA.
The course is unique in that it pairs interactive lectures with hands-on demonstrations and work-through sessions. Each student works on their own laptop. Software will be installed on each student's laptop during the beginning of the course, including Matlab (a trial version), SPM8, the Group ICA of fMRI Toolbox (GIFT), and related SPM toolboxes, including statistical non-parametric mapping (SnPM) and the multi-level mediation fMRI toolbox (M3). In addition, alongside the lectures, participants will be trained to analyze example fMRI data on their laptops using these tools. The course will be small and interactive, with many opportunities to work closely with the faculty. Registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis; we apologize in advance if we cannot accommodate all who wish to attend, but we will admit as many people as possible given the interactive nature of the course.
Sunday, January 10, 2016- Thursday, January 14, 2016
The meeting is open to everyone. It will take place in the small, picturesque village of Champéry, with scenic views on the Swiss Alps.
To combine science and ski, the program will feature invited talks and free communications/posters from 3-7 pm, with the rest of the day free for skiing, snowboarding, or hiking.
The four conference days (Monday through to Thursday) will be divided into four sessions with invited speakers. Invited talks will be followed by free communications by other participants and discussions.
All participants can submit abstracts for oral communications and/or poster sessions.
Lectures will take place in the new congress and sport center The Palladium in Champéry. The main hotel for the conference is the Hotel Suisse, located 300m away from the congress center. Addresses for other hotels can also be found on the travel page.
Champéry is a relatively small but excellent ski resort, with more than 100 ski lifts and 500 km of runs, connected to the domain of the Portes du Soleilwhich links 14 different resorts across the Swiss-French border. The cable-car to the ski slopes leaves 600m from the Hotel Suisse.

IWORDD: International Workshop On Reading and Developmental Dyslexia
Thursday, May 5, 201612:00 AM
- Saturday, May 7, 201612:00 AM
As part of its scientific activities, the Basque Center on Cognition, Brain and Language (www.bcbl.eu) with the UPV-EHU are pleased to announce the second edition of IWORDD: International Workshop On Reading and Developmental Dyslexia. Our aim with this workshop is to promote exchange of ideas between world-class dyslexia experts through talks and round tables, and facilitate transfer of knowledge between practitioners and scientists. 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. This will be complemented by talks and poster presentations selected from abstract submissions. Note that the language for these two days will be English. KEYNOTE SPEAKERS • Fumiko Hoeft - LENS, Psychiatry & Dyslexia Center, University of California San Francisco (UCSF), Haskins Laboratories & Faculty of Psychiatry, Keio University School of Medicine, Japan. • Frank Ramus - CNRS, Laboratoire de Sciences Cognitives et Psycholinguistique, Institute of Cognitive Studies & Ecole Normale Supérieure, France. • Sylviane Valdois - CNRS, Laboratoire de Psychologie et Neurocognition & Université Pierre Mendès-France, France. • Ken Pugh - Haskins Laboratories, University of Connecticut, Dept. of Linguistics, Yale University & Dept. of Diagnostic Radiology, Yale University School of Medicine, USA. • Nina Kraus - Auditory Neuroscience Lab, Communication Sciences, Neurobiology & Physiology, Otolaryngology, Northwestern University, USA. IMPORTANT DATES TO REMEMBER. IWORDD CONFERENCE Abstract deadline: January 20th,2016 Early registration deadline: March 1st, 2016 Conference dates: May 5 - 6, 2016 CONFERENCE PROGRAM. Part Two: IWORDD -- From Theory to Practice (May 7). The second part will promote the transfer of knowledge and interaction among researchers, parents, teachers and practitioners. IWORDD - From Theory to Practice will be centered around six keynotes by international experts tailored to a broad audience, followed by a round-table discussion. For this part, simultaneous interpretation in Spanish, English and Basque will be provided.
