This is a reminder that you can still apply to participate in the first
installment of Neurohackweek, a 5 day hands-on workshop, unconference and
hackathon held at the University of Washington eScience Institute in
Seattle (September 5th-9th, 2016).

Neurohackweek will focus on technologies used to analyze human neuroimaging
data, on methods used to extract information from large datasets of
publicly available data (such as the NKI Enhanced, Human Connectome
Project, OpenfMRI, etc.), and on tools for making neuroimaging research
open and reproducible.

Morning sessions will be devoted to lectures and hands-on guided tutorials,
and afternoon sessions will be devoted to participant-directed (unconference
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unconference>) activities: work on team
projects, hackathon sessions, and breakout sessions on topics of interest.

To apply: http://neurohackweek.github.io/

Accepted applicants will be asked to pay a fee of $200 upon final
registration (June 1st). This fee will include participation in the course,
accommodation in the UW dorms, and two meals a day (breakfast and lunch),
for the duration of the course. A limited number of fee waivers and travel
grants will be available. We encourage students with financial need and
students from groups that are underrepresented in neuroimaging and data
science to apply for these grants (email with a statement of interest to:
arokem at uw.edu)

Thanks to funding from the OHBM open science special interest group,
participants will be able to submit peer-reviewed progress reports,
reporting on their project, to be published as part of Brainhack
Proceedings series at Gigascience:
