This workshop is devoted to the interdisciplinary development of neuroscience through invited lectures and presentations on the state-of-the-art in neuroinformatics and to promote information exchange between domestic and foreign researchers. The main theme  of AINI 2018 is "Neuroinformatics Infrastructure and Technologies for Open Neuroscience". Standards of infrastructures and innovative technologies for database operation and analysis such as AI shall be highlightened toward generation of integrated knowledge across heterogeneous data in neurocience. All papers accepted and presented in this workshop will be published at the J-Node Portal with DOI.
