     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 has been extended to 14 April 2017, 11:59 pm EST. This is the 
final extension; the deadline will not be moved again. 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 14 April 
2017, 11:59 pm EST.
