Brainhack Global 2017

Brainhack is a unique meeting that convenes researchers from across the globe and a myriad of disciplines to work together on innovative projects related to neuroscience and open collaboration.

Brainhack Global 2017 will unite local & regional Brainhacks held all over the world during the same dates, March 2-5. INCF community members are participating in many of the local Brainhacks, and some are also hosted by INCF Nodes.

A Swedish branch of the Brainhack Global will be held on the Karolinska Institute campus in Stockholm on March 3-4, organized by the INCF Secretariat together with the local community. The location is the INCF Secretariat at Nobels väg 15A. The schedule will be organized by the attendees according to their interests; to work together on local or global projects of their choosing, or organize “unconference” presentations with spontaneous talks. There will be plenty of (free) snacks and food!

Open Data Day March 4 
March 4 is Open Data Day! We'll celebrate with a few presentations on open neurodata: one by Gustav Nilsonne on open neuroimaging data, and one by Anders Eklund on the tool BIDS Apps. There will be possibilities to work with open neurodata of various sorts, and assistance for those who want to make their data open.

Interested in attending? Great! Please fill in this nonbinding expression of interest (Google Forms) to help us plan.
