We are happy to announce the 15th edition of the *Brain Connectivity 
Workshop* (BCW) to take place in Marseille from the 22nd to the 24th of 
June 2016.

The Brain Connectivity Workshop (BCW) is a well-established workshop 
series, which has been held annually in Europe, USA, Australia and Asia 
for the last 14 years. BCW is an official satellite of the annual 
meeting of OHBM, which is held in Geneva, Switzerland in 2016. BCW 
attracts every year a public of 100-200 participants working in 
cognitive, computational and clinical neurosciences. The discussions are 
centered on all themes around brain connectivity including structural 
and functional imaging, modeling, brain function and clinics. BCW is 
highly influential in the field due to the traditionally high quality of 
speakers and a long track record of innovation. For instance, both, the 
Connectome and The Virtual Brain have been born within the BCW community.

The typical BCW format —a first educational day of lectures held by 
international authorities in their fields, followed by two days of 
shorter talks with ample time for discussion provides a unique forum for 
creativity, controversy and brainstorming. BCW 2016, introduced by a 
first day of tutorials by experts in their field, will feature focused 
sessions on themes such as perturbing the brain, mapping the brain, and 
brain dynamics in function (cognition) and dysfunction (epilepsy).

*NB: Please note that European Cup of Football will be held in France 
during this period and hotels are going to be booked fast! *
