About Hackathon

— The call for proposals extended to 1st September 2017 — 


On the weekend of 18-19th November 2017, the first edition of AoN Brainhack Warsaw will take place. During this two-day event dedicated to students and PhD students, we will work in teams on neuroscience-related projects. The aim of the event is to meet new, enthusiastic researchers, make new friendships in academia, learn, share the knowledge on data mining and brain research, but also promote open science in the spirit of the whole Brainhack community. 

Please note this brainhack is a satellite event for the the interdiscplinary Aspects of Neuroscience conference which will be held 24-26th November 2017 in Warsaw. Participation in conference is not mandatory but we encourage to do it.

At the moment, the call for project proposals is open. The proposals can include various forms of a group activity, e.g., data analysis, app development, a discussion club on a particular topic, developing a software etc. The organizers will provide a few openly available datasets to the project authors, but developing projects using private datasets is also welcome. 

A project proposal should include the following points:

[1] a title and abstract for the project;

[2] a list of 1-5 key papers summarising the subject (which the participants should become familiar with before starting the project);

[3] a list of requirements for taking part in the project (education level / English level / programming language required);

[4] a maximum number of participants

[5] a name of an author of the project, and a name of a senior researcher which will supervise the project during the Hackathon

[6] what can the participant gain from the project?

[7] an information on whether or not there is a plan for extending this work to a paper in case the results are promising


Two submitted projects which will take place at this event, are listed below:

Project 1 Functional connectivity research: can we find a common ground? 
Project 2 Detecting trypophobia triggers
