> Location:	60 Oxford Street, room 330
> Abstract:
> Brain research presents sufficient computing challenges that it has  
> spawned its own branch of informatics: neuroinformatics.  In the  
> realm of brain imaging, in particular, these challenges include  
> vast quantities of data, intensive processing and analysis, complex  
> spatial frames, sensitive longitudinal patient data, and  
> integration with a range of related measures.
> In this talk, Drs. Randy Buckner and Daniel Marcus will discuss the  
> Extensible Neuroimaging Archive Toolkit (XNAT), an open source  
> multi-university collaborative project being developed to address  
> these issues. XNAT’s secure web-based interface provides users with  
> tools to store, manage, explore, visualize, download, and share  
> their data.  Through the use of these tools, an organized workflow  
> emerges that carries a project from data acquisition and quality  
> control through collaboration and public access. XNAT is currently  
> being deployed by a number of universities and research  
> communities, including the Biomedical Informatics Research Network  
> (BIRN).
> The future of XNAT will also be discussed, including the  
> development of links to related neuroinformatics and bioinformatics  
> tools. The broad deployment and interoperation of these tools will  
> provide a distributed data and computational infrastructure to  
> support the anticipated emergence of a new class of high  
> throughput, highly integrated and collaborative brain research.
