The abstract for the talk is below:

NeuroFedora is an initiative to provide a ready to use Fedora based Free/Open source software platform for neuroscience. We believe that similar to Free software, science should be free for all to use, share, modify, and study. The use of Free software also aids reproducibility, data sharing, and collaboration in the research community. By making the tools used in the scientific process easier to use, NeuroFedora aims to take a step to enable this ideal. In this session, I will talk about the deliverables of the NeuroFedora project and then go over the complete pipeline that we use to produce, test, and disseminate them.
