Message from Workshop Chair
It is my great pleasure to announce that INCF Japan Node International Workshop on Advances in Neuroinformatics 2018 (AINI2018) will be held in RIKEN as the 6th annual international workshop.
In the era of artificial intelligence and biological/biomedical big data, the role of neuroinformatics has become increasingly important. In particular, effective sharing and use/reuse of large scale data from individuals are the highest priority issue not only for industrial and clinical applications for advanced health and welfare in the super-aged society, but surely also for academic researches, which have been addressed by the international concerted effort in the last two decades to establish novel scientific methodologies, technology infrastructure, and sustainable mechanisms for data acquisition, maintenance and management. AINI2018 will try to provide an exciting opportunity for disseminating continuous contribution from Japan Node to the global concerted effort by INCF and for fostering the exchange of ideas and opinions among researchers in the related fields.
We really look forward to your active participation in the workshop.
Taishin Nomura, Workshop chair
