Welcome to the web site for the Association for Canadian Neuroinformatics and Computational Neuroscience, a portal for communication with the community. Our goal is to enhance the visibility and impact of Neuroinformatics and Computational Neuroscience in Canada. We would like to share knowledge and encourage knowledge transfer through commonly organized events, mailing lists and open-access teaching and research resources. We hope to promote new collaborations and encourage scientific coordination leading to more efficient knowledge advancement and transfer.

If you are interested to join the community, please sign up to our mailing list here.

Report from CAN 2014 satellite workshop

In 2014, a second CNCN workshop was held as a CAN satellite, for which the meeting report is now avaiable on the website, either through the CNCN Publications tab, or the link here.

Invitation to the CAN 2014 satellite workshop on “Neural circuits of health and disease: from computation to experiment”

We would like to invite you to join us at the CAN 2014 satellite workshop on “Neural circuits of health and disease: from computation to experiment” to be held on Monday, May 26 between 5pm and 10pm at the Montreal Hilton Bonaventure. This workshop is organized by the Canadian Association for Neuroinformatics and Computational Neuroscience (CNCN) and jointly sponsored by CIHR and NeuroDevNet.

The goals of this workshop are to (1) showcase the significance of CNCN-experimental collaborations, (2) enable new breakthroughs on major health questions through break-out sessions matching CNCN expertise with experimentalists, and (3) prepare a joint vision on how CNCN will optimally benefit health research in Canada. We hope to build new collaborations, exchange ideas and demonstrate the usefulness of CNCN. In addition, we aim at providing specific suggestions to funding agencies on how CNCN could further boost Canadian health research. We are also very honored to have Dr. Eve Marder (Brandeis University; former SfN president) as a keynote lecturer. Please see below for a detailed program.
