Neurohackweek, September 4th-8th, 2017

Neurohackweek is a 5-day hands-on workshop in neuroimaging and data science, held at the University of Washington eScience Institute. Participants will learn about technologies used to analyze human neuroscience data, and to make analysis and results shareable and reproducible.

Morning sessions will be devoted to hands-on lectures and afternoon sessions will be devoted to participant-directed activities: hackathon and breakout sessions on topics of interest

This format is inspired by astrohackweek, a similar program focused on astrophysics.
