Neuroinformatics Assembly 2020 - Program

Training workshops aim to provide neuroscience students, instructors, and researchers with FAIR capabilities, aware of the value of standards and best practices, knowledgeable in dealing with big datasets, and able to integrate knowledge over multiple scales and methods.
2020 workshops include:

  • 2-day workshop that aims to instruct neuroscience faculty on the best practices for teaching data science. Register now! 
  • 2-day, hands-on workshop that aims to provide neuroscientists, regardless of career stage, with the skill necessary to acquiring and efficiently utilize cloud services. Register on 1st March 2020!
Monday, 17 August 2020
Training Day 1 (courses to be announced)
Tuesday, 18 August 2020
Training Day 2 (courses to be announced)

INCF Brain Summit is a unique workshop dedicated to providing the infrastructure providers and tool developers of the world’s leading large-scale brain projects with a forum to share experiences and lessons learned, as well as identify opportunities for alignment, gaps, and overlaps in the global neuroscience informatics infrastructure.
