2nd NEURO BIG-DATA SYMPOSIUM

Supported by NSF & MU Engineering and MU School of Medicine
December 15, 2017, Friday at 572 Life Sciences Center



Goals: Following up on the 1st Neuro Big-Data Symposium, four graduate student groups will be presenting their semester-long projects related to SOFTWARE AUTOMATION (‘Workflows’) for neuroscience research applications. These and other “tools” will be hosted at CyNeuro.org which will also be discussed. If you have software automation needs for your Lab, we could consider having it as a class project during Spring 2018. This is free for you, and so let us know.

Seeded by a grant from NSF, a team of faculty at MU have launched an effort to develop tools and applications for modeling/analysis/prediction/visualization of neuro big data. The resources will be hosted on a new web-portal CyNeuro.org (for cyber-neuroscience) that is being developed. The one-stop shop portal will speed up your research by providing access to neuro resources such as software, databases, computational models, HPC systems, recommender systems, and examples of best practice in specific applications.

If you are interested in developing, accessing or suggesting what resources to host on the portal, or in interacting with MU faculty from 'user' and/or 'developer' camps, consider attending the event. Since we have a limited number of seats, if you plan to attend the event, please register (required) via the MU Cyber-Neuro portal http://CyNeuro.org

Agenda:

  • 9 - 9:30 a.m. - CyNeuro Team – S Nair, D Xu, P Calyam, T Joshi; Progress during Fall 2017 on the development of “tools” to facilitate big-data research
  • 9:30 - 9:45 a.m. – Funding opportunities related to Neuro Big-Data
  • 9:45 - 10:30 a.m. – Technology Demonstration
  • 10:30 - 11:15 a.m. – Input from Faculty on specific workflows for their own research (note: all this is free for MU researchers)
  • 11:15 -12:00 noon – Discussion on ‘Assisting MU researchers with big-data needs’
