The Research, Innovation and Dissemination Center for Neuromathematics (NeuroMat) will hold the workshop “High-Performance Computing, Stochastic Modeling and Databases in Neuroscience” in São Paulo, from April 24 to 29, 2016. NeuroMat is hosted by the University of São Paulo and funded by the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP). The event's official website is: neuromat.numec.prp.usp.br/hpcneuro.
The workshop will mark the inauguration of NeuroMat's High-Performance Computing (HPC) Center.
Three roundtables will take place during the event. Roundtables will focus on “'Big science'”: the case for neuroscience”, "HPC in neuroscience” and "Open database and open source in neuroscience."
The main goal of the workshop is to discuss the mathematical, statistical and computational challenges that need to be addressed in order to achieve a deeper understanding of the brain. This will be an interdisciplinary workshop for scientists and students interested in computational and mathematical aspects of neuroscience.
The workshop will not receive external submissions, yet some external attendees may be accepted. If you are interested in attending, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your request will be replied to on a timely manner.
Conferences are being recorded, and the resulting videos will be posted at the NeuroMat website.
The workshop will take place at the Auditorium Fadigas, CCE/DTI building, Av. Prof. Luciano Gualberto, alley 3, 71, at the University of São Paulo, São Paulo, Brazil.
This NeuroMat event was supported by FAPESP and IME-USP.
