The INCF Neuroinformatics blog
The Congress itself takes place September 4-6. But there are also other events planned before and after the main meeting.
We have just made the 2011 Abstract book, with abstracts for all keynotes, workshops, demos and posters, available as a pdf for browsing and download (including a handy clickable index at the end!)
Satellite Workshop on September 3
The Congress kicks off already September 3 with the satellite workshop "Toward a Global Neuroinformatics Infrastructure" organized in collaboration with the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society at their yearly meeting EMBC, held at the Boston Marriott Copley Place Hotel. The workshop will include presentations from the leaders of large neuroscience infrastructure projects from around the world:
Main meeting September 4-6
The main meeting will feature 5 keynote lectures, 8 spotlight presentations of selected demos and posters, 12 workshop speakers, 35 demos and and 130 posters, as well as the INCF US Node Special Symposium (with another 9 lectures) on the afternoon of the last meeting day, September 6. The same day, September 6, also offers lunch seminars sponsored by BIRN. All details can be found on the meeting web pages.
INCF Task Force meetings September 7-8
Taking advantage of the fact that a large part of our community is present in Boston, after the main meeting we are also organizing meetings for many of the Task Forces associated with the INCF Scientific Programs, including a cross-Task Force hackathon at MIT on September 8.
