LONI Pipeline Training Workshop (OHBM 2009)

Mon, Jun 8, 2009

June 17, 2009, 4-6 PM, San Francisco Marriott

The LONI Pipeline provides a graphical framework for development, maintenance and dissemination of neuroimaging data-analysis protocols. The Pipeline environment offers a scalable infrastructure for graphical integration of diverse, complex and heterogeneous tools for neuroimaging and brain mapping research. This course will provide the necessary training to employ any of the available Pipeline library of modules and workflows. Attendees will also learn how to design new pipeline workflows by using existent modules or by introducing new module descriptors. All LONI tools, including the Pipeline, are freely distributed on the web (http://www.loni.usc.edu/Software/). Specific neuroimaging workflows (e.g., tissue segmentation, cortical surface processing, etc.) will be demonstrated hands-on during the workshop.

Neuroimaging Solutions: A Hands-on Training Course for Data Processing, Analysis & Interpretation using the LONI Pipeline
Part 1: Introduction to the LONI Pipeline What is the LONI Pipeline? How does the Pipeline work? How to construct basic module-descriptions and pipeline-workflows? Pipeline optimization, environment variables, variable transformations, etc. Part 2: Neuroimaging Solutions – automated and robust neuroimaging pipelines for Data management, DB connections Skull-stripping and tissue classification Automated Brain-Volume parsing Cortical surface extraction Volume-based (VBM) and Tensor-based (TBM) morphometry

Pipeline Features

Pipeline Features: Data, Executable and Workflow Provenance: enables tracking data, workflow and execution history of all processes. Intelligence: facilitates the automated construction of elaborate, functional and valid workflows. Scripting: Pipeline workflows may be exported as makefiles or a bash scripts for external execution. Remote File Browser: enables browsing & selection of files at remote servers Server Status: provides information about the status of the connected Pipeline server(s). Job Execution Monitor: Provide status information of job execution Libraries: Server (remote) and Personal (client) Libraries of modules and workflows Data Interfaces: Provide diverse functions for data, database and remote server data retrieval. Heterogeneous Tool Integration: Enables the integration of data, tools and services from multiple sites, platforms and formats. Server Failover: Pipeline server provides a failover functionality to support smooth job completion despite accidental server loss.
