Brainhack Vienna will orbit around the EvoDevo theme.
We aim to bring together a diverse crowd of neuroscientists, computer scientists, neuroimaging geeks, evolutionary biologists, antropologists and developmental scientists to tackle exciting interdisciplinary problems across the fields.
The brainhack will include unconference talks and lots of hacking on various datasets, dataset mergers and non-coding projects.
What is a Brainhack?
“These collaborative workshops combine elements of Hackathons and Unconferences, with a variety of educational activities, to accelerate the adaptation of data science and computational methods in Neuroscience. Much of the conference is allocated to open working time during which attendees are encouraged to work together in interdisciplinary teams on projects that utilize computational techniques to solve problems in neuroscience. Periodic unconference sessions provide an opportunity for attendees to share their expertise on topics that become relevant through the course of the event.”
Who can participate?
Everyone is invited to participate! Brainhack events welcome researchers from every academic background and career stage interested in the brain. Each local event is encouraged to accept participants from diverse backgrounds. Although previous knowledge of neuroscience analysis software tools and methods is beneficial, it is not a requirement, and participation in Brainhack events can take on many forms. If you want to get involved, there’s a place for you.
Do I have to propose a project?
It is not obligatory to propose a project. But you often get more out of a brainhack if you propose your own project. Coding and non-coding projects are welcome!
Participation will cost 50€ to cover breakfast, lunch, coffee breaks and social dinner.
