Brainhack is an academically oriented hackathon which connects researchers from across many different disciplines to work together on innovative projects related to neuroscience. For more details and examples of past Brainhack projects click here.
Any students (undergraduate/graduate), post-docs, staff, faculty, or clinicians with an interest in coding, neuroscience or neuroimaging are encouraged to participate.
The cost of the event is free! You still need to register however!
The project pitch night is on Thursday May 2, 5pm to 8pm, but the real hacking officially begins Friday morning, will continue on overnight (if you choose to!), with judging commencing at Saturday May 4, 2pm.
Yes! Breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, non-alcoholic beverages, and coffee will be provided throughout the event. Please indicate any dietary restrictions when you register.
Please bring your own laptop, cables, chargers, USB sticks, and some form of identification (e.g. Student card or Driver's licence). Also bring anything else you may need to work on your project (hardware, datasets etc.)
Learning is an important component of a Brainhack. There will be tutorials and experts around to answer questions. Don't miss the Friday morning install-fest where you can get your machine appropriately configured for neuroscience hacking!
Yes! Prizes will be awarded to the teams with the best hacks. Additional people's choice prizes for most helpful & collaborative brainhacker will also be awarded. More details to be announced soon!
