NeuroHackademy 2022: call for applications

We are happy to announce a call for applications to participate in NeuroHackademy 2022!

This two-week hands-on workshop will be held in a hybrid format, July 25th - August 5th, 2022 at the University of Washington in Seattle, Washington, USA and online.

NeuroHackademy is an opportunity for participants to learn state-of-the-art methods for the analysis and management of large human neuroscience datasets while also networking and working with domain experts and each other on concrete neuroscience problems. The curriculum emphasizes large datasets of publicly available data (such as the Human Connectome Project, OpenNeuro, etc.), and on the value of 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, as well as extended Q&A sessions. The second week will be devoted primarily to participant-directed activities: guided work on team projects, hackathon sessions, and breakout sessions on topics of interest.

If public health constraints related to COVID allow it, we will hold an in-person event in Seattle. Regardless, we will allow participants who are interested in this option to join the event through multiple online channels, including zoom-casts of lectures and breakout sessions, Slack conversations, and collaboration through GitHub and through the course’s online Juptyerhub.
