BigBrain Workshop 2024

You are cordially invited to attend the 8th BigBrain Workshop, taking place in the beautiful city of Padua, Italy, on September 10 and 11, 2024.

This workshop has established itself as the annual meeting place for the BigBrain community to come together and present their latest research, discuss prospects of the BigBrain associated data and tools, and brainstorm on how to better leverage high-performance computing and artificial intelligence to create multimodal, multiresolution tools for the high-resolution BigBrain and related datasets.

We are proud of our confirmed keynote speakers Maurizio Corbetta, Michel Thiebaut de Schotten, and Michael Hawrylycz.

The workshop will be held in conjunction with a Training Day, taking place as a full-day event on September 9, on-site at the conference venue.

The event is free of charge but prior registration is required.

Call for contribution: The workshop will be organized as a symposium, with both invited speakers and contributed talks as well as a poster session. We welcome short abstracts of current work and/or short proposals for future initiatives related to the BigBrain or similar data. Abstracts can be submitted until June 24.

Information about the programme and activities will be updated regularly on the event website – please visit:
