outGRID: a worldwide e-Infrastructure for computational neuroscientists
Three e-infrastructures for computational neuroscience are presently active or under contruction worldwide. In Europe, neuGRID aims to provide large sets of brain images paired with grid-based computationally intensive algorithms for studies of neurodegenerative diseases.
In Canada and the U.S., CBRAIN and LONI – Laboratory of Neuro Imaging at UCLA offer computational resources and algorithm pipelines.
Aim of outGRID is to ignite the process to lead the 3 e-infrastructures to converge into one unique worldwide facility.
outGRID will organize workshops to promote the exchange of technical information, direct the development of the infrastructures towards interoperability, and promote specific international calls aiming to achieve full interoperability.
