2nd HBP Young Researchers Event: Integrating neuroscience data into models and simulations

Geneva, Switzerland

Sept. 12, 2017 – Sept. 13, 2017

The 2nd Young Researchers Event (YRE) 2017 is hosted by the HBP and organised by young researchers within the HBP. It will take place in Geneva on September 12-13 and is immediately followed by the in-depth CodeJam in Lausanne on September 13-15.

This year‘s theme is integrating neuroscience data into models and simulations. Participants have the opportunity to learn about the Information & Communication Technology Infrastructure offered and developed by the HBP, and how to use it for their own research. They also get the chance to meet other researchers with similar interests, work in small groups and get support on their projects from the HBP Platform experts.

The event is targeted towards young researchers (Master and PhD students as well as early postdocs) both from within and outside the HBP and will answer the following questions:

  • I have obtained experimental data and want to include it in a simulation or compare simulated results using one of the HBP Platforms.
    Which one do I use? How can I use it?
  • I have already started working with the HBP Platforms, but do not know how to continue. What are the next steps?
  • I have not worked with the HBP Platforms yet, but wish to learn more about them.What can I do? How can I get started?


Several break-out sessions will be set up to address these questions by working with HBP Platform experts.

The Young Researchers Event is immediately followed by the in-depth CodeJam in Lausanne on 13-15 September. The CodeJam is an opportunity to continue working on the projects you have started during the Young Researchers Event, but participation is not mandatory. 


Project submission is closed.

Registration is closed.


Seven travel grants will be available upon request (European students only - residence). Requests have to be sent to education@humanbrainproject.eu prior to the registration deadline.
