A brainhack is a community-organized hackathon and unconference that brings together people interested in decoding the brain. People from a myriad of disciplines work on innovative projects that help us better understand the human brain.
At the beginning of the brainhack you will form teams, pitch projects, ideas and/or data, select a project of interest to you and your team and then work on that for two full days to with your team.
Previous projects have included finding a way to print the brain in 3D, creating an atlas of the subcortical auditory system and creating a machine learning tutorial. See some projects submitted during previous brainhacks.
On the last day, the team that created the best project will be awarded a prize. All participants will be provided certificates of participation.
The registration fee (€5) includes onsite lunch and refreshments.
