The workshop will introduce the VirtualBrainCloud – a EU project – that merges existing software tools and platforms to provide access to high quality clinical multi-disciplinary data in order to integrate them via computational modeling, and make them useful in clinical practice.
At the core of this project is The Virtual Brain (TVB) large-scale simulation platform. This simulation environment allows the biologically realistic modeling of network dynamics of human and mouse brain using connectome-based approaches across different brain scales: from cellular to whole-brain level. This computational modeling system is tailored to the individual, and bridges multiple scales to identify key mechanisms that predict disease progression and serves as Precision Decision Support System.
The workshop will provide insight in the interdisciplinary work and related challenges that range from computational and clinical neuroscience to infrastructure, and legal and ethical matters. Our international speakers team, from EU and Canada, comprises a balanced composition of genders and seniority levels.
The workshop will be held as a part of the CNS*2019 meeting in Barcelona, Spain.
