BrainScaleS CodeJam #6

Registration is now open for the 6th BrainScaleS CodeJam workshop, which will take place 27th - 29th January 2014 in Jülich, Germany.

The CodeJam workshops are dedicated to bringing together scientists, graduate students, and scientific programmers to share ideas, present their work, and write code together. Mornings are dedicated to invited and contributed talks, leaving the afternoons free for discussions, tutorials and code sprints. These workshops have been hugely effective in catalyzing open-source neuroscience software development.

The 6th CodeJam has a focus on high-performance computing. We invite contributions on any topic related to software in neuroscience, but especially on topics related to the main theme. If you have ideas for organising code sprints, whether a feature that you would like to see added to an existing tool or an idea for new software, please also let us know.

Please visit the event website http://www.fz-juelich.de/ias/jsc/events/codejam to learn more and register. Places are limited, so early registration is recommended.

The local organisation is carried out by the Simulation Lab Neuroscience (SLNS), headed by Abigail Morrison. Originally funded by the FACETS project, the workshops enjoy ongoing funding and support from BrainScaleS, INCF, the Helmholtz Association, the Jülich-Aachen Research Alliance and the Bernstein Network.
