The Helmholtz Portfolio Theme “Supercomputing and Modeling for the Human Brain” (SMHB) aims for a realistic model of the human brain as a fundamental tool for basic research and (pre-)clinical studies of the brain and of large cell populations. Key elements are the analysis of the organisation of the human brain across multiple scales as well as its modelling and simulation. The complexity of the human brain poses great challenges on data management, processing and on-line visualisation, thus demanding the integration of neuroscience, cell biology and high performance computing. The SMHB project with its innovations in multi-scale modelling and simulation will benefit from new developments in exa-scale supercomputing, but will also inspire new hardware and software solutions.

The SMHB project speakers Prof. Dr. med. Katrin Amunts (INM-1) and Prof. Dr. Dr. Thomas Lippert (JSC) invite scientists of the project partners Forschungszentrum Jülich (INM-1, INM-6, JSC), Helmholtz Zentrum München, Deutsches Krebsforschungszentrum, RWTH Aachen, École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (Switzerland), McGill University (Canada), Institut de Neuroscience Cognitives de la Mediterranée (France) to meet at Jülich Supercomputing Centre for the project’s annual General Assembly to present the research highlights of the project’s last year and for discussions in smaller focus groups.
