Virtual web-based - Making Open Neuroscience Infrastructures Interoperable 3.0

Wednesday, March 18, 2020 13:00to18:00
Montreal Neurological Institute 3801 rue University, Montreal, QC, H3A 2B4, CA


To participate in the virtual Neuro Workshop, MONII 3.0

  1. Download Zoom to your computer. You do not need to create an account but you must have the application on your computer to participate
  2. Participate via this link: https://mcgill.zoom.us/j/324767091       
  3. Once you join the workshop, we would ask that you mute your microphones and that video (image of yourself) is disabled.
  4. If you would like to have a question responded to in the Q & A portion of the program, use the chat function and indicate which speaker the question is directed at, then type in your question. The moderator, JB Poline, will direct the question to the speaker.


Neuroscience informatics infrastructure designed to find, host, process and publish results or derived data are key to most research projects, especially in the context of big and open neuroscience data. Many such infrastructures exist, whether they specialize on the data management, data sharing and dissemination, or computational aspects such as workflows, launching computations either locally or in the cloud.

To efficiently answer specific scientific questions, one generally requires fetching data or results from different locations, harmonizing these data and being able to run processing in different infrastructures seamlessly; therefore, there is a need for making the neuroinformatics infrastructures interoperable. This can be achieved through the emergence of well accepted standards for data communication, data processing, and for sharing of derived data or analysis results, making these research objects FAIR (Findable Accessible Interoperable and Reusable).

This half day conference which is open to all will bring together neuroimaging and genomics data management and processing neuroinformatics experts to advance standardization of these research objects through shared metadata. The challenges and possible solutions for making neuroscience data management and processing FAIR, as well as the impact on neuroscience and neurology research will be presented and discussed. Registration is at no cost but required.
