INCF Japan Node Hackathon 2016


The J-Node Hackathon is a collaborative event organized by the INCF Japan Node platforms in the means of promoting Neuroinformatics. Besides from Japan Node platforms, there are participants from Brain MINDS and SRPBS.


The INCF Japan Node sponsored the Brain Atlas Ideathon/Hackathon (BAH2015) in 2015. Participants had an opportunity to share information on neuroscience databases, the 3-D brain atlas, and software development.


This year’s J-Node Hackathon will cover a slightly broader topic: the joint development of software for managing neuroscience databases.


Thirteen diverse and extensive database platforms are available from the INCF Japan Node, but further work is necessary for improved usability and integration. One method for integration is data access based on the standard brain atlas, and another is data integration/access based on ontological categories. Last year the main target for the BAH was brain imaging and coordinates. This year’s broader theme will encompass collaborative development of software that includes ontological categories.


All interested persons are welcome to participate.
