Pattern recognition challenges in neuroimaging

1st ICPR workshop on brain decoding:
Pattern recognition challenges in neuroimaging
In conjunction with the 20th International Conference on Pattern Recognition
August 22, 2010, Istanbul, Turkey

Many of the challenges facing brain decoding are also highly relevant to
the field of pattern recognition at large – classification of multivariate
time-series, dimensionality reduction, and causal modelling to name a few.

This workshop wants to bring together researchers in pattern recognition
and neuroimaging for fruitful exchanges of experiences and recent
developments in brain decoding, both on the methodological side and the
application side. The temporal and spatial proximity with the leading
pattern recognition conference ICPR is a great opportunity to learn about
newest scientific developments in order to expand brain decoding methodology.

The topics of interest include:
* Data representations for brain decoding
– Voxel and feature selection
– Linear and non-linear dimensionality reduction
– Sparse timecourse representations
* Classifiers for high-dimensional learning
– Regularisation schemes
– Subspace methods
– Interpretability and validation
* Applications of brain decoding
– Visual processing
– Man-machine interfaces
– Clinical applications
– Deception detection

Authors should prepare full 4-pages papers (double-column, IEEE style).
Manuscripts will be evaluated by 2 reviewers.

Proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Science Society in electronic
format. They will be permantently available on the IEEExplore and IEEE CS
Digital Library online repositories, and indexed in IEE INSPEC, EI
Compendex (Elsevier), and others.
