The Neuro Bureau is proud to announce the 2012 Brainhack to be held from September 1-4 at the Max Plank Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Leipzig, Germany.
Brainhack is a unique event with the goals of fostering interdisciplinary collaboration and open neuroscience. The structure for the conference builds from the concepts of an unconference and hackathon. The term “unconference” refers to a conference structure in which most of the content is dynamically chosen by the participants – and a hackathon is an event where participants collaborate intensively on science-related projects. Brainhack will be a blend of both elements. On the last day, collaborative groups will give a brief presentation detailing their project, and the progress that was made over the course of the Brainhack.
We encourage participants across all disciplines related to neuroimaging to come prepared to present and discuss their research interests. Additionally, there will be the opportunity to present a poster during the first evening of the workshop.

Registration Deadline: 30 July 2012 (However, we encourage early registration, as space will be limited).
