NeuroHackademy 2024: Call for applications

We are happy to announce a call for applications to participate in NeuroHackademy 2024!

This two-week hands-on workshop will be held in a hybrid format, July 29th- August 10th, 2024 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. Participants will have an opportunity to present their own work in a session that will take place in the second week of the event.

This event will be held in a hybrid format, with options to attend in-person in Seattle, or online. Participants attending online will 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.
