Additional information

The day-long Workshop will be held Sept. 2 at the Portopia Hotel (Nunobiki Room) and is open to everyone. Progress of the program towards interoperability among diverse atlasing efforts will be featured, including Waxholm Space (WHS) as a spatial standard for the mouse brain and INCF Digital Atlasing Infrastructure (DAI) which supports this interoperability. Highlights include demonstrations and hands-on activities with software tools, transformation services, standards development, and information about how others might take advantage of this framework. Limited spots are available. To register, please email
