World Brain 2017
Welcome to the conference World Brain 2017 - Harmonization of data standards and infrastructure for the international brain initiatives
Date: October 17-18, 2017
Location: Stockholm, Sweden
Venue: Nobel forum, Nobels väg 1, Karolinska institutet
Neuroscience researchers can now collect enormous amounts of data on brain function in many species and large-scale brain initiatives have increased this capacity even more. The challenge of neuroinformatics is to integrate this information across all levels of neuroscience.
Join us for this conference where we bring together representatives from the international brain initiatives to discuss common data standards and tools which allow scientists to use big data to answer their research questions.
Registration for the open meeting on October 18 will open in August, 2017. Check back for details here.
Closed meeting at the INCF Secretariat where the invited speakers will discuss brain initiatives and make strategic decisions and action plans. Accomplished results will be presented at the public meeting.
