Due to the COVID-19 emergency, the Hackathon on March 20, 2020 has been postponed. Please check back for more information.


The 5th Fruit Fly brain Hackathon (FFBH 2020) will be held on Wednesday, March 18, 2020. The goal of the hackathon is to bring together researchers interested in developing executable models of the fruit fly brain. The hackathon is aimed at three main groups of participants: neurobiologists, modelers and software engineers. We welcome researchers working on the fruit fly brain as well as those working on other model organisms to participate and broaden the discussion in the hackathon.

The Fruit Fly Brain Hackathon 2020 is organized in conjunction with the Columbia Workshop on Brain Circuit, Memory and Computation on March 16-17, 2020. Participants of the hackathon are welcome to attend the workshop.
