HBP CodeJam Workshop #9

26th-28th November 2018, Palermo, Italy

The Piazza Pretoria in Palermo

The goal of the CodeJam workshops is to catalyze open-source, collaborative software development in computational and systems neuroscience and neuroinformatics, by bringing together researchers, students and engineers to share ideas, present their work, and write code together.

The general format of the workshops is to dedicate the mornings to invited and contributed talks, leaving the afternoons free for discussions, tutorials and code sprints.

The theme of this 9th installment is "co-design": scientists, students and engineers from different disciplines collaborating to build research infrastructure for computation-based neuroscience, and to use this infrastructure to model brain circuits, behaviour and learning, develop novel bio-inspired computing systems, and help discover new drugs for neurological disorders.

The 9th CodeJam was sponsored by the Human Brain Project.


The meeting will be held at the Grand Hotel Et Des Palmes, located in Palermo, Italy.


Registration is open to everyone interested in collaborative software development in computational and systems neuroscience and neuroinformatics, whether HBP members or not.

To register a (free) HBP community account is needed. To get an account, either ask any colleague who already has an HBP account to invite you or send an email to martina.schmalholz@kip.uni-heidelberg.de.

There will be a registration fee of €300 to cover venue location and catering (coffee breaks, lunches and the workshop dinner). The registration fee will increase to €350 on 1st October 2018.

Please register by 12th November 2018. Registration is limited to 90 participants.
