6th International Workshop on Pattern Recognition in Neuroimaging will take place in Trento, at FBK Scientific and Technological Hub, from 22nd to 24th June 2016. 

Pattern recognition techniques have become an important tool for the analysis of data from various neuroimaging domains, e.g., MEG, EEG, structural MRI, functional MRI, diffusion MRI, functional connectivity analysis. Pattern recognition techniques are helping to elucidate normal and abnormal brain function in cognition and perception, or the anatomical and functional architecture of the brain. They are starting to be used as biomarkers for diagnosis and for 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.
