The workshop, titled "Simulating the brain with the Brain Simulation Platform (BSP)", takes place before the official start of the annual INCF Congress (Neuroinformatics 2019) on August 31st at the Department of Physics, University of Warsaw, Poland.
This short course introduces the students to the Brain Simulation Platform (BSP) of the Human Brain Project (HBP), with the main aim to extend its access to the average user from a variety of communities in the field of Computational Neuroscience. After the course, students will be able to use the BSP and access HPC systems to configure and run a simulation, to visualize and analyse simulation results, and to form collaborative groups interested in exploring scientific issues of common interest.
Michele Migliore (National Research Council, Italy) presents the ICEI resources and gives a short overview of the Fenix infrastructure during the plenary lectures. Find the full programme of the workshop here and register here (Human Brain Project account required).
About Neuroinformatics 2019
The annual INCF Congress (Neuroinformatics 2019) takes place on 1-2 September 2019 at the Department of Physics, University of Warsaw, Poland. It provides a meeting place for researchers in all fields related to neuroinformatics and a forum for infrastructure providers and developers of tools, standards, and best practices to help define the capabilities of the global network, receive training on how to participate in the Open, FAIR and Citable global network and learn how to provide better services to their constituents. This conference is also a great opportunity to introduce new participants to the field of neuroinformatics and highlight new and innovative tools and approaches.
