Neuroinformatics events at SfN 2017, Washington D.C.

External Event - 11th to 15th Nov 2017

Come and join the International Neuroinformatics Coordinating Facility (INCF) booth #3416 at SfN!

The INCF will be hosting a stall at this years SfN conference in Washington D.C., USA, from 11th-15th November. Demos include INCF Japan Node’s informatics platforms and Brain/MINDS atlas, Norway Node’s brain atlas projects linked with the Human Brain Project, and demonstrations of neuroimaging tools from the Canada Node.

As well as these demos, the INCF will also be launching the INCF TrainingSpace! This platform provides a growing ‘go to’ hub of resources for learning and teaching neuroinformatics subjects. It links content from providers around the world, and has been developed under the INCF Training & Education Committee, with help from many partnering organisations including IBRO, OHBM and FENS.

The INCF will also be demonstrating KnowledgeSpace, the multimedia community encyclopedia for neuroscience that links brain research concepts to data, models, and literature, and is developed in collaboration with the Neuroscience Information Framework and Human Brain Project.

Live demos in INCF booth #3416 at SfN include:

Interactive tools for registration of 2-D and 3-D images into rodent reference atlases (with Maja A. Puchades, Gergely Csucs, Dmitri A. Darine, Christopher Coello, Martin Øvsthus, Ingvild E. Bjerke, Krister Andersson, Sharon C. Yates, Trygve B. Leergaard and Jan G. Bjaalie). Sunday 12th Nov at 11:15-13:00.

Collaboration in INCF Japan Node: ModelDB: Demonstration and online simulation at Simulation Platform (with Thomas M. Morse). Monday 13th Nov at 12:00-13:00.

Online training for reproducible neuroimaging (with JB Poline). Tuesday 14th Nov 12:30-13:00.

Neuroinformatics with the BNA

The BNA also has a special interest group (SIG) dedicated to neuroinformatics chaired by Leslie Smith, Professor of Computer Science at University of Stirling, and Marcus Kaiser, Professor of Neuroinformatics at Newcastle University.

The neuroinformatics SIG was formed in order to:

  1. Enable re-use of data and analysis tools in neuroscience, enabling reproducibility of analyses, and 
  2. Enhance collaboration between neuroscientists and informaticians in all areas of neurally related endeavour.

They organise a range of events around the UK for BNA members interested in neuroinformatics.
