Overview

We are pleased to announce the 4th Fruit Fly Brain Hackathon (FFBH 2019). The goal of the hackathon is to bring together researchers interested in developing executable models of the fruit fly brain. Towards that end we will engage systems and computational neuroscientists in modeling, design, implementation and biological validation of an open-source emulation platform of the whole fruit fly brain.

The Fruit Fly Brain Hackathon 2019 is organized in conjunction with the Columbia Workshop on Brain Circuit, Memory and Computation on March 21-22, 2019. Participants of the hackathon are welcome to attend the workshop.
