Brainhack Global will occur May 2 - 6, 2018
We are currently recruiting sites to host local events during Brainhack Global 2018. Each site sets their own schedule and content. The main global event will occur May 2 - 6, 2018, each site will have the flexibility to choose their schedule within this window.
If you would like to host a Brainhack Global event, but cannot do it in this time frame, you can still be apart of Brainhack Global. Video content from different events will be available online for you to show, and members of the Brainhack community will be more than happy to connect with you over video conference for a ignite talk. Could this be the year that the sun never sets on Brainhack?
Brainhack events are collaborative workshops that bring together researchers from disparate backgrounds to work on Neuroscience projects. Bulding on the success of last year, Brainhack Global 2018 will feature local events occuring over the same period so that they can share content using a variety of collaborative tools.
In addition to time spent collaborating on neuroscience projects, activities at the Brainhack Global will include:
Tutorials on computational skills that are aimed at streamlining your research and making it more reproducible
Keynotes from local neuroscience and methods researchers
Video content from events occurring other Brainhack Global locations
Open conference sessions during which attendees can present their research
If you are interested in this event there are now two ways you can be involved.

We are currently recruiting sites to host local events during Brainhack Global 2018. Each site sets their own schedule and content. Hosting an event requires finding a suitable location (can be a classroom, hackerspace, library meeting room, or similar with good network and plenty of power outlets), ordering refreshments, and recruiting participants.
