About

Objectives: The ACNN 2022 workshop will continue our work on the development of common practices and standardization to make it easier for neuroscience researchers to annotate and process data; to share data, tools and protocols, and to work with distributed high-performance computing environments. The workshop will bring together members of the Midwest, national, and the global neuroscience research community to promote data reuse, aggregation, result validation and new discoveries in neuroscience.
