SPM Courses

London, May & October 2015

The FIL SPM course on using Statistical Parametric Mapping for neuroimaging is held each May and October as part of the Institute of Neurology's short course programme.

Since 2010, we provide two separate SPM courses reflecting the different imaging modalities. There is a three-day course on SPM for EEG/MEG followed by the long-established three-day course on SPM for fMRI/VBM/PET. Both courses are suitable for beginners and more advanced users. We advise students to gain at least some minimal familiarity with the methodology, for example, from reading introductory articles available from the SPM web page or by following data analysis examples in the SPM manual.

The next SPM course in London will take place on 11-13 May 2015 (M/EEG) and 14-16 May 2015 (fMRI/VBM) but registrations have not started yet.

Externally organised SPM courses

Other SPM courses are organised around the world at different times of year and in different languages. If you do organise one, please let us know so that it can be listed here.

Zurich SPM course, Switzerland, 03-06 February 2015
This three-day course, which is held annually since 2007, offers a comprehensive coverage of all MRI-related aspects of SPM.
Course material for 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014
Utrecht fMRI Course, The Netherlands, 11-13 February 2015
The course consists of theoretical sessions in the morning and supervised hands on practical sessions on PC workstations in the afternoon on every day. For the practicals, SPM8 is used for data analysis through a number of assignments. This course is accessible to researchers worldwide, and intended for researchers entering the field of fMRI.

Chicago SPM 2015, USA, October 22-23rd, 2015
The inaugural SPM workshop in Chicago, IL (USA) will be held at the University of Chicago with SPM courses and "hands-on" data processing for beginners and experts. In addition, lectures on neuroimaging will be provided by neuroscientists and psychologists who study phenomena ranging from neuroimaging, bioengineering, and social behavior.
Hamburg SPM 2015 - Course for functional Imaging, 31 August-03 September
The 18th SPM course in Hamburg will be held at the University Medical Centre Hamburg Eppendorf with courses for beginners and experts (teaching language: german!)
In addition satellite workshops for a basic matlab course and for multivariate pattern classification (MVPA) are available.
