National & International Workshops

The National and International Workshops provide a forum in which all the laboratories can engage in organized, informed discussion of ethical issues in research, methods of communication within laboratories and departments, and techniques for preventing problems and resolving them constructively as they arise. The workshops are held annually.

Annual Anatomy/Human Brain Atlas Symposium
Each year, since its original meeting in Paris in 1995, we have run an annual symposium at the Organization for Human Brain Mapping meeting on the topics of computational anatomy and neuroanatomy, brain atlases and spatial normalization and databases.

Human Brain Mapping Course
Presented in conjunction with the annual meeting of the American Academy of Neurology, the Human Brain Mapping Course at The American Academy of Neurology Annual Meeting has been given annually for the last five years with John Mazziotta, MD, Ph.D., as course director. The goal of this course is to familiarize clinical neurologists and trainees as well as research oriented clinicians who are interested in functional imaging brain research. It provides an opportunity to learn about the most current methodologies, data analysis approaches and organizational schemes for structural and functional data about the human brain.

Biennial Cold Spring Harbor Course on Neuroimaging and Human Brain Mapping
We have held this course twice in alternate years as a week-long offering aimed primarily at post-doctoral trainees and graduate students interested in functional brain imaging. The course material is a detailed presentation of all of the currently available functional and structural imaging techniques. In addition, considerable time is spent discussing experimental design, data analysis, integration and visualization.

National Youth Leadership Forum
Since 1992, the National Youth Leadership Forum (NYLF) has empowered more than 50,000 high-achieving high school and university students with the confidence to make well-informed career choices and position themselves for today’s challenging and diverse job market. More

Ontology of Medical Images

The NCBO (http://bioontology.org) and CCB (http://www.ccb.loni.usc.edu) will host a two-day workshop focused on the ontology of (biomedical) images to take place on March 24-25, 2006 at  Stanford University. The goal of the workshop is to coordinate current efforts towards the development of a biomedical image/imaging ontology. The following topics will be addressed:

  • basic principles of sound ontologies
  • steps towards coordination and integration of ontologies in the imaging domain
  • hands-on experiments directed towards building a biomedical image ontology (dealing with: images and image-classification, image features, interpretations, relation of images to reality, the role of a reference ontology such as the FMA)
  • preliminary discussions directed towards building an ontology of imaging tools and data, including issues related to the classification of imaging algorithms and to the potential uses of a tools ontology in supporting interoperability of bioinformatics software
