MLCN 2018

MLCN aims to bring together top-notch researchers in machine learning and clinical neuroscience to discuss and hopefully bridge the existing gap in applied machine learning in clinical neuroimaging. This year, the main objective is to shed light on the opportunities and challenges in the structure-aware modeling of neuroimaging data in both encoding and decoding settings. We are looking forward to receiving original and high-quality contributions on both methodological developments and applications of machine learning in analyzing clinical neuroimaging data. Topics of interests include but are not limited to:

  •        Applications of spatio-temporal modeling in predictive clinical neuroscience
  •        Spatial penalization in decoding clinical neuroimaging data
  •        Spatial statistics in neuroimaging
  •        Learning with structured inputs and outputs in clinical neuroscience
  •        Multi-task learning in analyzing structured neuroimaging data
  •        Deep learning in analyzing structured neuroimaging data
  •        Model stability and interpretability in clinical neuroscience

Title:  Discrepancy of correspondence, tracking the changing and developing functional connectome Abstract: How can we capture the functional connectome if it is not tightly coupled to anatomical reference frames? Machine learning approaches allow for the tracking of changes in the connectome, the matching of network structures between healthy controls, and patients after a reorganization, or the … Continue reading Keynote 2: George Langs

Title:  MRI biomarkers extraction, teachings from an autism-prediction challenge Abstract: Can MRI be useful to extract practical biomarkers of brain pathology? We recently ran a blind challenge of prediction of Autism spectrum disorder diagnostic status. The 10 winning solutions scored on average 0.81 area under the ROC curve, which is a very good prediction score. This confirms our experience … Continue reading Keynote 3: Gaël Varoquaux

Title:  Machine learning in neuroimaging: A journey from mass-univariate methods to multi-variate imaging signatures of diseases, in search of precision diagnostics Abstract: In this talk, I will briefly provide a historical perspective of the past 20 years, in which we saw the transition from hypothesis-based to big-data-driven methods of analysis of brain images. This journey … Continue reading Keynote 1: Christos Davatzikos
