About 2016 International Conference on Brain Informatics & Health (BIH’ 16)

BIH series provides a premier forum that brings together researchers and practitioners from neuroscience, cognitive science, computer science, data science, artificial intelligence, information communication technologies, and neuroimaging technologies with the purpose of exploring the fundamental roles, interactions as well as practical impacts of Brain Informatics.

BIH'16 addresses the computational, cognitive, physiological, biological, physical, ecological and social perspectives of brain informatics, with a strong emphasis on emerging trends of big data analysis and management technology for brain research, behaviour learning, and real-world applications of brain science in human health and well-being.

About Special Session on BigNeuron Project 

BigNeuron is a community effort to define and advance state-of-the-art of single neuron reconstruction: an essential unsolved challenge in brain science. The special session is aimed to review the progress of the Bigneuron project and discuss the state-of-the-art neuron reconstruction and analysis methods. The session will contribute to the field by discussing exciting research and methods in neuroinformatics from the BigNeuron community, broadening our thinking about the computational methods that facilitate biology discoveries, and investigating cutting-edge software tools for large-scale neuroimaging data analysis.

The special session invites researchers and scientists to submit their high-quality, original works in neuron morphology reconstruction, analysis, and all other related areas to BigNeuron project.

The topics include, but are not limited to:
•    Neuron tracing and reconstruction
•    Neuron morphology analysis
•    Microscopy image processing and visualization
•    Large-scale  morphology data analysis
•    Morphological cell type classifications

Authors should submit their abstract with a word limit of 500 words using our online submission system. Accepted abstract submissions will be included in the conference program, and will be published as a single, collective proceedings volume.
