HBP School – The Brain Simulation Platform of the Human Brain Project

21 August 2018

17-21 September 2018 Palermo. This School will introduce participants to the Brain Simulation Platform (BSP) of the Human Brain Project (HBP), with the main aim to train users on how to exploit the possibilities offered by the Platform to implement cellular level computational models, to use High Performance Analytics and Computing Platform systems to configure and run a simulation, and to visualise/analyse the results.

Both short lectures and longer afternoon activities will be delivered at a basic and intermediate level. Through tutorials and hands-on activities, attendees will learn how to interact with the BSP to carry out their own research, to set up and manage a data-driven collaborative project, or to use the BSP to interact with the HBP Neuroinformatics Platform. Participants will be encouraged to introduce new ideas and suggest ways to use their original experimental data/techniques to implement/use the multiscale neural model they would like to investigate.

Participation info:

  • Application is open to the entire student community and early career researchers, regardless of whether they are affiliated with the Human Brain Project or not.
  • Participants are required to submit an abstract on their current research, a CV and a motivation letter with their application.

Registration fees:

  • 1 August - 10 September: 450 €
  • After 10 September: 500 €

The fee does not include travel and accommodation. Fees will be collected after participants have been selected.
