Aim

Neuroinformatics combines neuroscience and informatics research to develop and apply the advanced tools and approaches that are essential for major advances in understanding the structure and function of the brain.

Within this Special Interest Group, we aim to 

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

Activities

  • The University of Newcastle is holding a conference entitled Computational Neurology, 20-21 February 2017. The aim is to help apply the advances in computing and neuroscience to the clinical field for the benefit of patients.
  • The UK Node has successfully proposed a Neuroinformatics Symposium at the forthcoming BNA Festival of Neuroscience to be held 10-13 April 2017, in Birmingham UK. This symposium will also be the official launch event of the Neuroinformatics SIG. The symposium (Symposium 26) will be on Wednesday 12 April 2017, 13:20 to 15:00, and the programme is now available.
  • The 2017 INCF Neuroinformatics Symposium will be in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, 20-21 August 2017. There is further information at the Symposium website.
