BrainHackEDT-A2, for brain imaging researchers, set for Oct. 18-19 at U-M Museum of Art
October 18, 2014 @ 12:00 am - October 19, 2014 @ 12:00 am
BrainHackEDT-A2, a regional instance of the internationally recognized BrainHack (brainhack.org), is scheduled for Oct. 18-19. BrainHack is designed to be a creative, interactive, cross-disciplinary outlet for people broadly interested in brain imaging from diverse disciplines (engineering, psychology, computer science, etc) to spark new ideas and hack these out. Hacking can take the form of conversations, presentations, designing experiments, constructing and deconstructing concepts, analyzing data, forming new collaborations, and even building tools. As the event nears, organizers are interested in hearing any new ideas. BrainHackEDT will be taking place simultaneously across academic centers in the Eastern Daylight Time zone on Oct. 18 and 19, with periodic video links. Participating institution locations include Ann Arbor, Boston, Washington DC, Atlanta, New York City, Toronto, and Porto Alegre. BrainHackEDT-A2 will take place at the University of Michigan Museum of Art in Ann Arbor,centered in the multipurpose room (UMMA has WiFi, video capabilities, desktop workspace), but organizers also encourage attendees to take their hacking into the art space. BrainHackEDT-A2 attendees include experts in experimental design, psychiatric and psychological research, data analysis and big data analysts, statisticians, physicists, engineers, with a range of techniques represented (MRI, EEG, fNIRS, behavioral, etc). Contact organizers at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions, or projects you would like to propose or even lead.
