The Society for Neuroscience (SfN) course was spear-headed by Dr. Jane Roskams, and included world-renowned experts in neuroinformatics showcasing their tools and datasets. Dr. JB Poline, a new MNI faculty member and HBHL hire, discussed the need for data publishing and the Canadian Open Neuroscience Platform, as well as data and compute management software that will eventually comprise the backbone of NeuroHub - namely, CBRAIN and LORIS.

Following the talks, the McGill team demonstrated these platforms and worked with attendees towards integrating their datasets and tools so that they can eventually leverage publicly available infrastructure for performing big data neuroinformatics research.

Both course and demonstration were well received by the attendees!
