Announcing a workshop at the CNS2015 meeting in Prague, Thursday July 
23: Open Collaboration in Computational Neuroscience

Building and analysing biophysically and anatomically detailed neuronal 
networks is a complex and time consuming task, which ideally involves 
researchers with a range of backgrounds and technical skills. However, 
most labs cannot expect to have all of these researchers present at any 
given time. This can lead to stalled projects, lost data and software 
and needless repetition of experimental and computational work.

A number of initiatives have been started which address these issues. 
Some are creating public resources with freely available data to 
constrain such models. Others are using best practices from open source 
software development to encourage building and sharing of models in a 
collaborative environment. This workshop will serve as an informative 
introduction to these projects as well as a discussion forum for getting 
feedback and gathering requirements from the community for the 
developers of these initiatives.

There are still a number of slots available for *5-10 minute lightning 
talks*, so if you are involved in a project in this area and wish to 
publicise it, please get in contact.
