**Apologies for cross posting**

Dear Colleagues,

This is a final call for full-length papers submissions to our *3rd
International Workshop on Connectomics in NeuroImaging (CNI 2019),
*and *Transfer-Learning
CNI Challenge 2019 *held in parallel with the 22nd International Conference
on Medical Image Computing and Computer-assisted Intervention (MICCAI 2019)
in Shenzhen, China.

*Our deadline has been extended to Weds 31st July 2019*

**** CNI Workshop Call for Papers ****

Our topics of interest cover (but are not limited to):

(1) New developments in connectome construction from different imaging
(2) Development of data driven techniques to identify biomarkers in
connectome data;
(3) Machine learning algorithms and connectome data analysis;
(4) Brain network modeling and formal conceptual models of connectome data;
(5) Evaluation and validation of connectome models.

If you have research that fits into the scope of our workshop detailed on
our website (http://www.brainconnectivity.net/workshop*)*, we encourage you
to submit a paper.

**** CNI Call for Challengers ****

Addressing the issues of generalizability and clinical relevance for
functional connectomes, you can leverage a unique resting-state fMRI
(rsfMRI) dataset of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and
neurotypical controls (NC) to design a classification framework that can
predict subject diagnosis (ADHD vs. NC) based on brain connectivity data.

In a surprise twist, we will also evaluate the classification performance
on a related clinical population with an ADHD comorbidity. This challenge
will allow us to assess (1) whether the method is extracting functional
connectivity patterns related to ADHD symptomatology, and (2) how much of
this information “transfers” between clinical populations.

Training and validation data are now released

**** Why submit to the CNI Workshop and Challenge? ****

- Keynote talks by Prof Yong He (Beijing Normal University, China) and Dr.
Fan Zhang (Harvard Medical School, USA);
- Oral presentations and poster sessions to provide you with ample
opportunity for exchanges and discussions;
- Accepted papers will be published in an LNCS proceedings;
- Best Paper and Poster Awards will be presented, and sponsored prizes for
Challenge winners.
