I'm speaking at the "Biomedical Applications" course and related panel at the SIGGRAPH 2010 conference in Los Angeles on July 26th. The slides are available online.
I presented a poster on the NeuroLex.org project in Boston, July 9th and 10th as part of the Bio Ontologies workshop. I've attached my poster from that session to this page.
I got to speak at the UCSD Neurosciences Spring Retreat on May 22nd, 2010! I hope to post this talk online soon.
I am attending and speaking at a symposium called "Multiscale approaches to understanding neural plasticity" being hosted by the Center for Adaptive Neural Systems at Arizona State University. In addition, I am attending and presenting at "The future of multiscale modeling", the second annual NeuroML workshop, co-localized with the symposium. This looks like a great event and I am excited about it!
I was invited to give a 20-30 minute talk at the American Society for Cell Biology's 49th annual meeting this December, in a special interest subgroup. Here's the session title and abstract:
I will be presenting NeuroLex.org and the Whole Brain Catalog at the 39th annual Society for Neuroscience conference in Chicago, IL.
SfN's annual meeting provides the world's largest forum for neuroscientists to debut research and network with colleagues from around the world.
Some feedback from the event:
I'll be attending the 2nd Annual Congress of the International Neuroinformatics Coordinating Facility in Pilsen, Czech Republic this September.
At the congress, I'll be presenting a poster on NeuroLex.org, as well as demonstrating a tool useful for visualizing data inside a new standard mouse brain coordinate system, the Waxholm space.
Ignite San Diego has the following premise:
If you had five minutes on stage, what would you say? What if you only got 20 slides and they rotated automatically every 15 seconds?
I gave the following talk:
STEPHEN LARSON - Reverse engineering the brain, online
Neuroscience is undergoing a revolution in information technology. New online tools bridging neuroscience and computer science have the potential to bring scientists, students, educators, and even the public together to reverse-engineer the structure and function of the brain. This talk will provide a brief overview of this trend and what can be expected coming down the road.
The talk was well received. An attendee blogged about it:
Larson is a Ph.D candidate in Neuroscience at UCSD and discussed the potential of combining both neuroscience and computer science to provide the academic and public communities with more information and a better understanding of the human brain. As soon as he mentioned developing a “Google Map of the Brain,” I was sold.
On Sunday, August 16th, my presentation was made a featured presentation on the front page of SlideShare!
