Registration is now open for Brainhack UAB 2017. This 3-day workshop will be held March 2nd - 4th at the University of Alabama Birmingham (UAB) and is part of Brainhack global, where a constellation of such events happen simultaneously around the globe. Brainhack events convene researchers from a myriad of disciplines to work together on projects related to neuroscience. Similar to hackathons in the tech sector, much of the schedule is left open for attendees to work together on projects of their choosing. Brainhacks are not “coding sprints” or exclusive to programmers, but rather are open to brain scientists from all backgrounds. Part of the goal is to get people with different backgrounds working together to understand the brain.
Working papers on the outcomes from Brainhack UAB can appear in the Gigascience Brainhack Thematic Series, and shorter project reports from the event are eligible for the annual Brainhack Proceedings.
The event will be held March 2nd from 5:30 PM to 9 PM, March 3rd from 9 AM to 9 PM, and March 4th 9 AM to 6 PM. Thanks to generous funding from the UAB HSF, registration is free, and includes some meals and coffee breaks. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own computers.
