We are happy to announce a call for applications to participate in Neurohackademy 2020!
This two-week hands-on workshop held at the University of Washington eScience Institute in Seattle, July 27th - August 7th, 2020, focuses on tools and techniques used to analyze human neuroscience data, on methods used to extract information from large datasets of publicly available data (such as the Human Connectome Project, OpenfMRI, etc.), and on tools for making human neuroscience research open and reproducible.
Neurohackademy sessions in the first week will include lectures and tutorials on data science, machine learning, data visualization, and data resources. The second week will be devoted to participant-directed activities: guided work on team projects, hackathon sessions, and breakout sessions on topics of interest.
For more details and a preliminary list of instructors, see: https://neurohackademy.org/
We are now accepting applications to participate at https://neurohackademy.org/apply/
Ideally, applicants should have some prior experience with programming and with neuroscience data analysis, but we welcome applications from participants with a variety of relevant backgrounds.
Accepted applicants will be asked to pay a fee of $200 upon final registration. This fee will include participation in the course, accommodation in the UW dorms, and two meals a day (breakfast and lunch), for the duration of the course. A limited number of fee waivers and travel grants will be available. We encourage students with financial need and students from groups that are underrepresented in neuroimaging and data science to apply for these grants (see application form for details). We may also be able to support participants who need childcare during their participation in the course.
