Calling Young Researchers

2nd HBP Young Researchers Event: Integrating Neuroscience Data into Models and Simulations

Young researchers can learn about using the Human Brain Project’s (HBP) research infrastructure at this year’s HBP Young Researchers Event.

Organised by the HBP Education team the event is calling for abstracts by Tuesday, 1 August. The event itself will be held in Geneva on September 12-13, 2017.

This year’s theme is integrating neuroscience data into models and simulations. Participants will 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 will 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.

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 started during the Young Researchers Event (though participation is not mandatory). 

The registration deadline is 16 August 2017.
