Neuroscience informatics infrastructure designed to find, host, process and publish either 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 in the data management, data sharing and dissemination, or computational aspects such as workflows and launching computations locally or in a cloud.
To efficiently answer specific scientific questions generally requires a seamless ability to fetch data or results from different locations and to harmonize and process the data on different infrastructures; hence the need for interoperablity among neuroinformatics infrastructures. This can be achieved through the emergence of well accepted standards for data communication, data processing, and for sharing of derived data or the resulting analysis, making these research objects FAIR (Findable Accessible Interoperable and Reusable).
This half-day conference, which is open to all, will bring together neuroinformatics experts in neuroimaging and genomics data-management and processing 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, particularly neurological research, will be presented and discussed. Registration is at no cost but required.Free
