Symposium on Big Data Initiatives for Connectomics Research

dHCP brain

The BioMedIA group is hosting a symposium on the 30th of August and invites scientists from around the world to join and present their research regarding the construction of large connectomic networks.

This symposium intends to bring together researchers with an interest in informatics challenges related to the storage, processing and diffusion of large brain images datasets.

Processing these large datasets is the key to build connectomic networks. At the era of Big Data and High Performance Computing, large scientific datasets made available to the public must be accompanied by original and efficient methods to process them, store them reliably and make them available to the widest number of scientists. This requires the development of tools and methods that not only allow sensible analysis on the single subject level, but are also robust with respect to groupwise studies on a very large database.

The event will take place at the Royal Geographical Society, close to Imperial College London. The address of venue is: 1 Kensington Gore, London, SW7 2AR.
