Brainhack 2013 registration now open!

We are thrilled to draw your attention on the upcoming Brainhack 2013, which is being held from October 23-26 at the Centre International d'Études Pédagogiques, Sèvres, France (just outside of Paris). Brainhack 2013 is a unique workshop with the goals of fostering interdisciplinary collaboration and open neuroscience. The structure builds from the concepts of an unconference and hackathon: The term “unconference” refers to the fact that most of the content will be dynamically created by the participants — a "hackathon" is an event where participants collaborate intensively on projects. Participants interested in neuroimaging from any discipline are welcome. Ideal participants span in range from graduate students to professors across any disciplines willing to contribute (e.g., mathematics, computer science, engineering, neuroscience, psychology, psychiatry, neurology, medicine, art, etc…). The primary requirement is a desire to work in close collaborations with people outside of your specialization in order to address neuroscience questions that are beyond the expertise of a single discipline. One should come to brainhack ready to engage into collaborative projects, and with some material (slides, ideas, data, tools) ready to start a project or a discussion panel. Brainhack will build on the successful techniques used in other unconferences to keep the meeting focused and productive. It is possible to start a project and build a team as early as today. Please have a look at the website for information on the conference and a sample of projects (from Brainhack 2012): The Preliminary Schedule for Brainhack 2013 is available here. ***NEW*** We will be accepting and publishing Brainhack 2013 abstracts. Abstracts should be submitted when you register. Registration is now open here. Please share this with your friends and colleagues.
