CCB Demo Day – Software Demos & Training Event

Saturday, July 19, 2008, UCLA, NRB Auditorium

The Center for Computational Biology is organizing a 1-day training workshop that will include demonstrations of novel tools for computational, translational and applied neuroscience research. This year, we have decided to organize the CCB software tools training in three distinct sessions – Shape Tools, DTI/HARDI Software, and Workflows and Validation Resources. These three topics reflect the core aims, vision, research and development efforts undertaken by Center faculty, students, trainees and other investigators.

This day-long training workshop will showcase CCB challenges, data, software tools and web-services. These resources will be demonstrated in the context of applied, computational and translational neuroscience research. Investigators, researchers, trainees and students interested in discovering new algorithms, techniques and protocols for automatic analysis of multidimensional imaging, genetic and demographic data are welcome to attend. Summary of each demonstration is included in the Workshop Handbook. On-site registration is free. Refreshments will be provided.
