Welcome to the INCF booth in the Institutional Exhibit area, booth no.3227.
The INCF has invited leading scientists to present databases, tools for visualization and analysis of neuroscience data, and environments for modeling and simulation of nervous system functions.
We are hosting double-track parallel demonstrations from 15 different projects, in a two-session daily program. Morning sessions run from 09:30 to 12:30, afternoon sessions from 13:30 to 16:30. At the booth you will also have the opportunity to provide feedback on the INCF Neuroinformatics Portal and you will find all INCF publications.
