Workshop at CNS 2020

Tools and resources for developing and sharing models in computational neuroscience

This workshop was held at the 29th Annual Computational Neuroscience Meeting. CNS 2020 was held entirely online in 2020.

CNS2020 Workshop



Day 1: Tues 21st July
Day 2: Wed 22nd July


This workshop focussed on recent advances in software tools for modeling neurons and neuronal networks at different levels of resolution. Neuroscience has been experiencing a rapid growth of data streams characterizing composition, connectivity, and activity of brain networks in ever increasing details. Data-driven modeling will be essential to integrate these multimodal and complex data into predictive simulations to advance our understanding of brain function and mechanisms. We brought together representatives of many teams that develop computational tools aimed at incorporating and simulating this complexity.

Major topics for discussion included the established and emerging computational approaches for building and simulating network models, advances in enabling increased access to sophisticated modeling for a broad community of users, and sharing and reproducibility of models. These discussions should serve to promote the efficiency, reproducibility, and free exchange of computational models in the community to support advances in many areas of neuroscience.
