SONA 2022: Invitation to two EBRAINS events

EBRAINS Side Event at ICRI 2022

We cordially invite you to participate to the EBRAINS Side Event at the International Conference on Research Infrastructures (ICRI) 2022, on Friday 21 October 2022 from 7.30 to 8.30am CEST.

On this occasion, the ICRI EBRAINS Side Event offers an excellent opportunity to learn more about how the EBRAINS Research Infrastructure is supporting the future of brain science.

During this one-hour session, SONA members will have the chance to hear Keynote Speakers and renown scientists conversing about the essence of the EBRAINS Research Infrastructure:

  • Introduction of EBRAINS and moderation by Mr. Paweł Świeboda – CEO EBRAINS AISBL, Director General Human Brain Project
  • Leveraging the value of brain data by Prof. Dr. M.D. Jan Bjaalie- Professor at the University of Oslo, Leader of EBRAINS Data Services
  • The future of Brain Health within the EBRAINS Research Infrastructure by Univ.-Prof. Dr. med. Petra Ritter – BIH Johanna Quandt Professor for Brain Simulation, Director Brain Simulation Section, Berlin Institute of Health & Dept. of Neurology, Charité University Hospital Berlin
  • Open Science and Brain Research by Prof. Dr. Yannis Ioannidis- ESFRI Executive Board Member, President of ACM, Professor of Informatics and Telecommunications at University of Athens, Affiliate Faculty at Athena​ Research and Innovation Center
  • A solution approach for EBRAINS Research Infrastructure by Prof. dr. ir. Liesbet Peeters, Professor at the Biomedical Research Institute and Data Science Institute of Hasselt University, Multiple Sclerosis Data Alliance Core Partner

We cordially invite SONA members to fill-in the registration form on the EBRAINS website to attend on-line.

Simulate with EBRAINS – Free online workshop

This a free online workshop that aims at giving an overview of how to simulate with EBRAINS, from the infrastructure level to simulations at multiple scales.

The event will take place on 7-10 November 2022.

It covers a large variety of topics, e.g. computing and data services of or related to the Fenix infrastructure, Neuromorphic Computing, and simulations on a scale from molecules via small and large networks of point or structured spiking neurons to simplified whole brain activity and virtual environments Participants can choose from a large number of sessions what is relevant for them.

The online agenda might be consulted here.

The participation is free of charge but requires registration and an EBRAINS account (also free of charge).

All participants can get an EBRAINS account here.

Notice that they should use an institutional email (University, Hospital) and not a personal one (Gmail, Outlook, etc.) in order to speed up the process.

Should you encounter any problem, please, contact our support team.
