We are pleased to announce the 6th BigBrain Workshop as an in-person event taking place on

October 25-27, 2022 in Zadar, Croatia.

With this workshop we  reach out to the international community of BigBrain users and invite researchers from our global network (and beyond) to present their work and to discuss future prospects of the BigBrain data and tools, in particular to discuss how to better leverage high performance computing (HPC) and artificial intelligence (AI) to create multimodal, multiresolution tools for the high resolution BigBrain and related datasets. We are proud to announce Mu-ming Poo and Ivica Kostović  as our keynote speakers.

The BigBrain Workshop will be organized as a symposium, with both invited speakers and contributed talks as well as a poster and demo session. We welcome short abstracts of current work and/or short proposals for future initiatives related to the BigBrain or similar data. 

As an HBP partnering project, HIBALL is committed to HBP’s training activities and supports this with joint events and participation in the curriculum, through the work of our shared members, offering young researchers a great opportunity to showcase their research work and practise their mentoring skills.
We are pleased to announce already that the BigBrain Workshop will be held in conjunction with the Autumn HBP Young Researchers Event, taking place as a full day event on October 25, on-site at the conference venue. A separate registration is required! 

The event is free of charge but prior registration is required.  

We provide a limited contingent of rooms at the conference venue, as well as information about further accommodation
