The Hackathon CEREBELLUM MODELLING will be held at the University of Pavia, 13 - 15 January 2020.

The Hackathon will illustrate cerebellum models and provide tutorials for their development and applications. The course is designed with selected presentations and large space for hands-on experience. The attendees will be introduced to the main themes of cerebellum modelling and to the use of the HUMAN BRAIN PROJECT research infrastructure, Brain Simulation Platform and future EBRAINS, addressing the principles of multiscale brain modelling.

The attendees will elaborate and simulate computational models of neurons and networks of the cerebellum.

Topics will include:
- an illustration of the Brain Simulation Platform models and use cases and of the related modelling languages (PYTHON, NEURON, NEST, PYNN, SONATA, ARBOR);
- the foundations of realistic data-driven neuronal modelling, including biophysical principles, model matching to experimental data (optimization), supervised model simplification;
- the foundations of realistic data-driven microcircuit modelling, especially cell placement and connectivity in microcircuit scaffolds;
- the scale-up to large-scale and brain models and their incorporation in robots, neuromorphic hardware and virtual brain.
