Brainhack Global 2019: Call for Local Event Site

Dear colleagues,

apologies for cross-posting

Brainhack Global 2019 will take place between 13-17 November, and it is time to start organizing the local events! Brainhack events are collaborative workshops that bring together researchers from different backgrounds to collaborate on tools and ideas for addressing neuroscientific questions. The Brainhack community seeks to foster integration and implementation of open, reproducible, and inclusive research methods and tools in neuroscience. This year’s Brainhack Global aims to build on the success of recent years to bring together initiatives and celebrate the power of collaborative and open science across the globe!

Brainhack events aim to include:

  • tutorials on the use of open science tools, resources, and specific data analysis techniques that facilitate the reproducibility, openness, and collaborativeness of the neuroscientific investigations;
  • pitching and working on projects that support collaborative and rapid creation of tools;
  • keynotes from experts in specific research domains;
  • broadcasting tutorials from event sites;
  • unconference sessions that allow a relaxed and friendly environment for attendees to share their expertise;
  • social networking activities.
