Fruit Fly Brain Hackathon 2017

We are pleased to announce the 2nd Fruit Fly Brain Hackathon (FFBO 2017).
This hackathon will feature the Fruit Fly Brain Observatory (FFBO) and its
key components NeuroNLP and NeuroGFX. The former allows for exploring fruit
fly brain data using plain English queries, and the latter facilitates the
modeling and execution of such brain circuits. Brief tutorials will be
given on the usage of the FFBO as well as developing new tools/features in
FFBO. The hackathon is aimed at three main groups of participants:
neurobiologists, modelers and software engineers. The goal of the hackathon
is to bring together these three groups of participants to create new ideas
to develop, use and improve the FFBO platform towards developing executable
model of the fruit fly brain.

The Fruit Fly Brain Hackathon is organized in conjunction with the Columbia
Workshop on Brain Circuit, Memory and Computation on March 13-14, 2017.
Participants of the hackathon are welcome to attend the workshop.

Registration is free but all participants have to register
