Big Data Neuroscience Workshop 2019
September 19 @ 8:30 am - September 20 @ 12:15 pm
Weiser Hall, 10th Floor
Objectives: The ACNN 2019 workshop will continue our work on the development of common practices and standardization to make it easier for neuroscience researchers to annotate and process data; to share data, tools and protocols, and to work with distributed high-performance computing environments. The workshop will bring together members of the Midwest, national, and the global neuroscience research community to promote data reuse, aggregation, result validation and new discoveries in neuroscience.
The workshop will feature keynote speakers – Russ Poldrack, Tristan Glatard, Jack Van Horn, Jessica Turner, and Cindy Lustig – as well as lightning talks, poster sessions, and a panel discussion focused on translational neuroscience. We are offering an opportunity to connect with leading figures in the neuroscience community and a learning environment to explore the field of big data.
We will support a number of travel scholarships for students, post-doctoral scholars, and young investigators that will include travel and lodging. We encourage early registration at: http://www.neurosciencenetwork.org/ACNN_Workshop_2019.html.
Deadline for submission of travel scholarship applications is August 15, 2019. Please note NSF travel scholarships are available only to US residents.
