The Second INCF Congress of Neuroinformatics
(Nanowerk News) The Second INCF Congress of Neuroinformatics will convene September 6-8 at the Parkhotel conference venue in Pilsen, Czech Republic. The emerging neuroinformatics field combines neuroscience and informatics research to develop advanced tools and approaches to understanding the structure and function of the brain. With a broad international outreach, the meeting will bring together experts from different disciplines contributing to neuroinformatics.
Neuroinformatics 2009 aims to facilitate dissemination of recent progress in the field and help foster a strong and vibrant scientific community. Last year’s Congress in Stockholm gathered more than 260 researchers from 27 countries. The organizers hope to increase participation this year, especially from the local neuroinformatics community in Central Europe.
Chaired by David Willshaw, Professor of Computational Neurobiology at the University of Edinburgh, the Congress will feature keynote lectures covering web-scale data management, mechanisms of neuron and network stability, maximizing the utility of neuroimaging data, and cortical control of neural prosthetics.
Abstract submission for the Congress is now open. More information, including the full program, is available here.
