Brain Summit 2018: Towards the alignment of the large-scale brain initiatives in support of clinical data

Representatives from major brain initiatives will present their respective initiative and how the tools, infrastructure, and services being developed will help neuroscientists make their research FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable). 

The Brain Summit is a meeting for major brain initiatives, with emphasis on coordination and alignment of efforts. The meeting will also showcase what is means to be FAIR, why it is important, and how the tools and services being developed by the large-scale initiatives can facilitate.

Public session on FAIR neuroscience
The first half of the first meeting day, April 24, is open to the Swedish neuroscience and neuroinformatics communities. The program will be centered around presenting the objectives and main tools developed by the major brain initiatives. Please see a program outline below.

The public half-day is followed by a 1.5 day closed technical session, which aims to identify the overlaps, gaps, and opportunities for alignment, particularly in relation to clinical data use cases. 

Dates: April 24, 2018

Location: Stockholm, Nobel Forum at the Karolinska Institute.

Registration: latest Tuesday April 17 using this form

Organizers: INCF Secretariat and INCF CTSI (Council for Training, Science and Infrastructure) in collaboration with the INCF Swedish Node, led by Prof. Jeanette Hellgren Kotaleski at KTH who is also Deputy Head of the CTSI.
