Brainhack Global Warwick 2017 - March 2-3
We are happy to annouce that we are organising Brainhack Warwick 2017. This 2-day workshop will be held March 2nd - 3rd here at Warwick and is part of Brainhack global, where a constellation of such events will happen simultaneously around the globe.
Brainhack events convenes 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. We also include “unconference” sessions where talks are chosen by the attendees based on their interests as they evolve throughout the meeting. Brainhacks are not “coding sprints” or exclusive to programmers, but rather are open to brain scientists from all backgrounds.
Working papers on the outcomes from Brainhack Warwick can appear in the Gigascience Brainhack Thematic Series, and shorter project reports from the event are eligible for the annual Brainhack Proceedings.
Thanks to generous funding from the Wellcome Trust, registration is free, and includes 2 lunches, a conference dinner, all coffee breaks and parking. To register, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, affiliation, current position and area of expertise. Space is limited so please only register if you are able to attend, we will confirm your place by return email.
