[Neuroinfo] 1st French Neuroinformatics Workshop, June 17th, Paris

The French Node of the INCF is organising a one day workshop with the aims of:

* bringing together people involved in neuroinformatics in France (i.e. anyone applying computational methods to neuroscience, whether it be simulation, data analysis, data management, ...)
* raising the profile of neuroinformatics, so that more neuroscientists are aware of the what the field has to offer

We invite anyone involved in using computational approaches in neuroscience, or who is interested in discovering new tools and techniques they can apply to their own research, to take part in the workshop. **A limited number of travel grants are available** to doctoral students and postdocs working in French universities or research institutes.

Registration is free but required, as the number of places is limited. To register, please fill in the registration form: http://neuroinf.fr/workshop2014/register/

The meeting will take place at the European Institute for Theoretical Neuroscience,  74 Rue du Faubourg Saint-Antoine in central Paris.

Organisation and Support:

The workshop is being organised by the French National Node of the INCF (organising committee Yves Frégnac (UNIC, CNRS), Jean-Baptiste Poline (Neurospin, CEA2, UC Berkeley) and Andrew Davison (UNIC)). The workshop is supported by a grant to the INCF French National Node from the Thematic Institute for Neuroscience, Cognitive Science, Neurology, and Psychiatry of the French National Alliance for Life and Health Sciences, by the CNRS and by the EITN.
