                              PRNI 2017
      7th International Workshop on Pattern Recognition in Neuroimaging
                   to be held 21-23 June 2017
           at the University of Toronto, Toronto, Canada

Pattern recognition techniques are an important tool for neuroimaging 
data analysis. These techniques are helping to elucidate normal and 
abnormal brain function, cognition and perception, anatomical and 
functional brain architecture, biomarkers for diagnosis and 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 (two 
column IEEE style) for double-blind review. The manuscript submission 
deadline is 27 March 2017, 11:59 pm EST. Accepted manuscripts will be 
assigned either to an oral or poster sessions; all accepted manuscripts 
will be included in the workshop proceedings. Similarly to previous 
years, in addition to full length papers PRNI will also accept short 
abstracts (500 words excluding the title, abstract, tables, figure and 
data legends, and references) for poster presentation.

Finally, this year PRNI has an open call for tutorial proposals. A 
tutorial can take a form of 2h, 4h or whole day event aimed at 
demonstrating a computational technique, software tool, or specific 
concept. Tutorial proposals featuring hands on demonstrations and 
promoting diversity (e.g. gender, background, institution) will be 
preferred. PRNI will cover conference registration fees for up to two 
tutors per accepted program. The submission deadline is also 27 March 
2017, 11:59 pm EST.
