CNS*2019 Workshop in Barcelona
We introduce here VirtualBrainCloud – a EU project – that integrates existing software tools and platforms to provide access to high quality clinical multi-disciplinary data to integrate them via computational brain models and to make them useful in clinical practice.
Central to this project is The Virtual Brain (TVB) simulation platform. It allows connectome-based modeling of human and mouse whole-brain dynamics, and enables the “integration” of brain dynamics at different levels: from cellular to whole-brain. This computational modeling system is tailored to the individual, and bridges multiple scales to identify key mechanisms that predict disease progression and serves as Precision Decision Support System.
The workshop will provide insight in the interdisciplinary work and related challenges that range from computational and clinical neuroscience to infrastructure and legal and ethical matters.
The workshop consists of two half-day sessions:
08:50 - 09:00
Petra Ritter & Julie Courtiol
09:00 - 09:35
The Virtual Brain Simulation Platform and Virtual Brain Cloud
09:35 - 10:10
Modeling brain dynamics in brain tumor patients
10:10 - 10:45
Ethical and legal aspects of personalized brain simulation and data sharing
10:45 - 11:00
11:00 - 11:35

Final discussion & closing remarks
The workshop will be held as a part of the wider CNS*2019 meeting in Barcelona, Spain. The meeting takes place at the Historical Building of the Universitat de Barcelona (UB), which is located downtown Barcelona.
Registration to the Workshops is required for attending the 2 days. Please see the CNS*2019 website for registration to the Virtual Brain Cloud workshop.
Note that attendees registered for the main meeting only can attend the workshop sessions being held on July 16th.
