We are happy to announce the first Brainhack in Zurich. It will be held on March 2 & 3 2017 as part of Brainhack Global.
Brainhack workshops offer an open platform for brain-imaging-scientists of all levels of experience to meet and discuss new ideas. In the beginning of March, over 40 sites across the globe will simultaneously hold Brainhack events.
The Zurich Brainhack will focus on introductory hands-on tutorials on tools for (neuroimaging) data analysis to promote reproducible science. Furthermore, the event aims to connect the Swiss neuroscience community by providing a space for open discussion.
If you like to learn more about the concept of Brainhack see the paper by Cameron Craddock and others.
For a detailed description of the talks and tutorial please take a look at the Abstract Book.
Links to slides and other material can be found here. This list will be updated throughout the event.
