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

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.

University of Geneva, Biotechnology Campus
A BrainMap/Mango workshop will be held at the University of Geneva, Biotechnology Campus the two days immediately preceding the OHBM conference. The BrainMap® database (brainmap.org) and its software tools (Scribe, Sleuth and GingerALE) collectively form a widely used, comprehensive environment for coordinate-based meta-analysis and modeling of functional and structural neuroimaging results. Mango® is a software package for visualization, analysis, and data-driven interpretation (anatomical and behavioral) of primary and meta-analytic neuroimaging data. This workshop teaches the theoretical foundations of coordinate-based meta-analysis – both functional and structural -- and its practical implementation using the BrainMap/Mango suite of tools. Lectures alternate with practical sessions in which attendees perform meta-analyses on example data (provided) or on their own datasets. The number of attendees is strictly limited.

EEG monitoring with dry electrodes: the achievements of the ANDREA European project and future perspectives
Saturday, June 25, 2016- All Day
Geneva, Switzerland, Palexpo
Multichannel Electroencephalography (EEG) is widely used in clinical neurophysiology and neuroscientific research. EEG caps with 32 to 256 wet Silver/Silver-Chloride (Ag/AgCl) electrodes represent an often-used standard in the field. Reproducible electrode-skin contact for these electrodes is ensured by electrolyte gel or paste. Thus, these electrodes require specific mechanisms to apply and hold the gel at the electrode positions in the caps and require skilled personnel and a lengthy procedure to apply the EEG cap. Dry electrodes allow more degrees of freedom in the design and fabrication of EEG caps and can be self-applied without preparation.
This workshop, promoted by the partners of the ANDREA project (www.andreaproject.eu), is meant to inform and educate everyone who may be interested in these topics, from novices to experts. In particular, we will discuss novel multi-channel EEG caps with dry electrodes, and the most recent results obtained in this field within the ANDREA European project. Partners in the project and external experts will present the most recent advancements in sensors, caps and electronics, as well as data processing and artifact reduction algorithms. We will also give space for validation and application studies, for a demonstration of the novel ANDREA dry EEG system, and for discussing future perspective developments and applications.
