Brainhack 2017

Brainhack Global 2017!
Take part in a distributed mega-brainhack event at the Beckman Institute at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign on March 2-4, 2017.

Brainhack is a community-organized hackathon and unconference that brings together researchers and technologists from a myriad of disciplines to work together on innovative neuroimaging projects involving large data sets in structural MRI, functional MRI, or other modalities, including EEG and fNIRS/EROS optical imaging. Groups can bring their own data sets or work on public data sets. Since the first Brainhack in 2012, these events have become a model for open collaboration in science. Following the success of previous distributed events, Brainhack Global 2017 will take place simultaneously at 40 regional sites in 16 countries, allowing participants around the world to collaborate and share knowledge in real time despite being thousands of miles apart.

$25 for students; $50 for others. Registration includes lunch and refreshments throughout the event.
REGISTRATION DEADLINE: Friday, Feb. 24, 2017
