[MLNI2011] Call for participation to the “Machine Learning for NeuroImaging Workshop”

This is to announce the “Machine Learning for Neuroimaging” Workshop that will be held on Nov. 8 and 9, 2011 in Marseille, France.

The main goal of this workshop is to bring together people from the machine learning community and people from the neuroimaging community that are keen to discuss their expertises. Potential outcomes to this workshop are for instance: the formal/machine learning setting of common problems in neuroimaging, the identification of new problems that can be readily tackled using machine learning techniques, the creation of new collaborations. It is also expected that discussions will build around important challenges of machine learning posed by neuroimaging data such as feature selection in presence of few data, transfer learning, structured prediction…
