A brainhack is an event that brings together people interested in the brain to work on projects related to neuroscience. Madrid Global Brainhack is part of an International initiative where different spots around the world host the Brainhack simultaneously. Its aims is to promote collaborations within Spain and to create an international community of scientists interested in the brain. We will also offer educational sessions, like hands-on tutorials on basic tools of open collaboration.
Brainhack is great for any level of expertise, this is an occasion to learn new methods,develop new skills, meet new people, and just have fun! During the event there will be unconference sessions, including presentations on ongoing projects of the participants,ideas that could seed future collaborations or panel discussions.
From the organization we will propose you some hacking-challenges, some of them could be published and others could be presented to prizes such as MATLAB Online Live Editor Challenge or the National Hackathon of e-Health in June. However, you can also bring your own data from your lab. personal projects, doubts about scripting... and your laptop!.
Finally, in this edition, you can work together with some of the main international references in computational neuroscience (see Lectures).
