The CARMEN (Code, Analysis, Repository and Modelling for e-Neuroscience) system provides a web based portal platform through which users can share and collaboratively exploit data, analysis code and expertise in neuroscience. The system has been beendeveloped in the UK and currently supports 200 hundred neuroscientists working in a Virtual Environment with an initial focus on electrophysiology data. The proposal here is that the CARMEN system provides an excellent base from which to develop an ‘executable paper’ system. CARMEN has been built by York and Newcastle Universities and is based on over 10 years experience in the construction of eScience based distributed technology. CARMEN started four years ago involving 20 scientific investigators (neuroscientists and computer scientists) at 11 UK Universities ( The project is supported for another 4 years at York and Newcastle, along with a sister project to take the underlying technology and pilot it as a UK platform for supporting the sharing of research outputs in a generic way. An entirely natural extension to the CARMEN system would be its alignment with a publications repository. The CARMEN system is operational on the domain, where it is possible to request a login to try out the system.
