This section will describe the organizational and Informatics infrastructure that supports the Global Brain Consortium (GBC). Specifically, the GBC uses the LORIS multi-modal database and the CBRAIN high-performance computing platform to curate, analyze, and disseminate data. These platforms constitute major infrastructure elements supporting national networks like the Canadian Open Neuroscience Platform (CONP) and EEGNet. The EEG-centric GBC international network builds upon this mature IT base and its associated organizational framework (administration, ethics, data governance policy, training) to engage with the global community for data- and tool-sharing and project management. Participants will come away with a strategic perspective of the entire ecosystem. In subsequent hands-on sessions, details of how to interact with this ecosystem will be provided.
