Announcing the third annual Open Source Brain Workshop, May 12-14th 
2015, Alghero, Sardinia. 

The Open Source Brain initiative aims to encourage collaborative, open 
source model development in computational neuroscience and is primarily 
supported by the Wellcome Trust. As with past OSB meetings 
<http://www.opensourcebrain.org/docs#Meetings> this workshop will bring 
together experimentalists, theoreticians and tool developers who are 
interested in creating open, community developed models of neuronal 

Researchers interested in building and sharing models of any brain 
region and from any species are welcome to attend the meeting. There 
will be presentations on the latest developments and functionality of 
the OSB resource and associated technologies including NeuroML and LEMS. 
There will also be a special focus session on Wed 13th May on *creating 
and sharing experimentally constrained models of the hippocampus*.
