We are organizing and hosting the São Paulo – Alberta Magnetic Resonance (MR) Image Reconstruction and Processing BrainHack workshop in collaboration with researchers in University of Calgary.

  • About the event: Our goal is to join experts in their fields and young researchers to discuss contemporary MR image reconstruction and processing problems and applications using machine learning approaches. The workshop will consist of a combination of lectures, scientific power pitch presentations, BrainHack challenges and lots of opportunities for connecting with new people. You don’t need to be an expert on machine learning or brain MR to participate! We will have mentors, educational lectures, and a cross-disciplinary team that will support all participants to understand machine learning, and show how it can be applied to active research problems. Invited speakers from University of Calgary (UofC), UNICAMP, USP and from NeuralMind are going to give talks and serve as monitors to each team.
  • Date: 17-19 October 2018
  • Confirmed invited speakers: Dr. Richard Frayne (UofC), Dr. Nils Forkert (UofC), Dr. David Gobbi (UofC), Dr. Marina Salluzzi (UofC), Dr. Roberto Lotufo (NeuralMind), Dr. Sandra Avila (UNICAMP), Dr. Agma Traina (USP)
  • Venue: School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (FEEC) – State University of Campinas (UNICAMP), Campinas, São Paulo, Brazil.
  • Target audience: Graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, professors, industry and academic researchers working either on MR image acquisition, processing or analysis with interest in solving their problems through machine learning techniques. There is a limited number of spaces available.
