AFNI Bootcamp ad: BCBL, San Sebastian, España (May, 2020)

Dear Researcher,

The Basque Center on Cognition, Brain and Language (BCBL) is organizing the 1st Basque AFNI meeting. The event will be held in San Sebastián-Donostia, 10-16 May 2020.

This meeting aims to gather together scientists, researchers and clinicians who would like to learn the basic steps and latest advances in volume- and surface-based analysis of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and diffusion-weighted MRI (dwMRI) data analysis using AFNI and SUMA. This 6-day intensive workshop will comprise plenary lectures on preprocessing and data analysis of fMRI data, including the talks, tutorials and hands-on sessions that are usually part of the popular AFNI Bootcamp, as well as seminars on the basic and advanced principles of fMRI physics and experiment design. Keynote speakers include: Robert Cox (NIH), Gang Chen (NIH), Paul Taylor (NIH) and César Caballero-Gaudes (BCBL).

The meeting also aims to serve as a forum for exchange and sharing of experiences in the analysis of fMRI and dwMRI data, not necessarily using AFNI and SUMA software. Participants are encouraged to submit a brief abstract of their work (not mandatory for registration). A collection of abstracts will be selected for quick presentation in power-pitch format (max. 5 min).

In parallel with the lectures and hands-on sessions, participants will also have the opportunity to work hackathon-style on their own projects in dedicated rooms at the BCBL and to enjoy consultations with the invited speakers and other meeting participants. A dedicated session for individual consultations will also take place on Saturday, 16 May 2020.

The Organizing Committee
