Description

Overview

We are pleased to announce the 3rd Fruit Fly Brain Hackathon (FFBO 2018). This hackathon calls for open neurophysiology data (electrophysiology, imaging, etc.) among the fruit fly brain research community. It will focus on building a platform for such data in the Fruit Fly Brain Observatory (FFBO). In particular, our goal is to initiate the discussion and code development for uploading, downloading, storing and querying neurophysiology data in NeuroNLP, and incorporating queried data into computational study of the fly brain in NeuroGFX. The hackathon is aimed at three main groups of participants: neurobiologists, modelers and software engineers. The goal of the hackathon is to bring together these three groups of participants to develop, use and improve the FFBO platform towards developing biologically validated executable models of the fruit fly brain.

The Fruit Fly Brain Hackathon 2018 is organized in conjunction with the Columbia Workshop on Brain Circuit, Memory and Computation on March 15-16, 2018. Participants of the hackathon are welcome to attend the workshop.
