Allan Jones, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer of the Allen Institute for Brain Science, was selected as a keynote speaker for Neuroinformatics 2011, the 4th world congress of the International Neuroinformatics Coordinating Facility (INCF). His keynote address will take place on September 5, 2011 at the congress in Boston, Massachusetts.

Dr. Jones will discuss the Allen Brain Atlas suite of tools and data for exploring the mammalian central nervous system. With a rapidly growing repertoire of unique online public resources that are freely available to researchers across the globe, the Allen Brain Atlas resources have expanded well beyond the Allen Mouse Brain Atlas for which the Institute was originally known. The Allen Institute for Brain Science is dedicated to creating these resources to fuel discovery among researchers worldwide and to advance the scientific community's understanding of the brain in health and disease.

The INCF Neuroinformatics Congress brings together leading researchers in neuroinformatics, an emerging multidisciplinary field at the intersection of neuroscience and computer science that facilitates the analysis, integration, and sharing of data about the nervous system. The congress features five keynote lectures from globally renowned thought-leaders, workshops and panel discussions, and poster and demonstration sessions with the goal of globally unifying the field of neuroinformatics.
