BIH'15 CALL FOR SATELLITE SYMPOSIUM/SPECIAL SESSION PROPOSALS

2015 International Conference on Brain Informatics and Health (BIH'15)

August 30 - September 2, 2015, London, UK

Homepage: http://braininformatics.london

Proposal submission due: March 10, 2015
Notification of proposal acceptance: March 30, 2015

---------------------------------------------------

Brain research is rapidly advancing with the application of big data
technology to neuroscience as can be seen in major international
initiatives in the US, Europe and Asia. BIH'15 reflects that brain
informatics has emerged as a distinct field and crosses the
disciplines of neuroscience, cognitive science, computer science,
signal processing, and neuroimaging technologies as well as data
science. Following the success of past conferences in this series,
BIH'15 will take place at Imperial College London, in UK, gathers the
researchers from major international brain research projects, and
plans an industrial exhibition.

BIH'15 draws special attention to informatics for brain science, human
behavior and brain health. BIH'15 will address big data approaches to
both the brain and behaviour, with a strong emphasis on emerging
trends of big data analysis and management technology for BI, active

TUTORIALS

**************

The tutorials are intended to provide a comprehensive introduction to established or emerging research topics of interest for the machine learning and the data mining community. These topics include related research fields or applications. The ideal tutorial should attract a wide audience. It should be broad enough to provide a basic introduction to the chosen research area, but it should also cover the most important topics in depth.

We welcome half day workshop proposals.

 

Proposal Deadline: March 2, 2015

Proposal Acceptance Notification: March 23, 2015

Web Page: http://www.ecmlpkdd2015.org/submission/call-for-tutorials



WORKSHOPS

****************

The workshops will be on relevant and current topics in Machine Learning and Data Mining. The scope of the proposal should be consistent with the conference themes as described in the ECMLPKDD 2015 Call for Papers (http://www.ecmlpkdd2015.org/submission).

Interdisciplinary workshops that bring together researchers and practitioners from different communities are especially welcome. We encourage workshops that bridge the gap between theoretical advances and important and/or innovative applications of machine learning and data mining.

We welcome both full and half day workshop proposals.

 

Proposal Deadline: March 2, 2015
