Registration is now open for Brain-anatomy-hack in Paris.

Brain-anatomy-hack aims at promoting the interaction between scientists on
questions concerning (1) the investigation of brain anatomy based on
magnetic resonance imaging or post mortem dissection; (2) the evolution of
nervous systems across species; (3) the variability of brain features
across healthy participants; (4) the insurgence of brain pathologies.


Program

Each of the three days will begin with an “Ignite Session” in which
speakers will give 15-30 minute talks that will address wide questions in
neuroanatomy that would benefit from open, interdisciplinary collaborations.
The “Ignite Session” will be followed by a “hack session” and a dynamic set
of talks organized by attendees. During the “hack sessions”, participants
will be encouraged to work together in small groups on relevant projects.
The workshop will culminate on the last day, when participants will have
the opportunity to present a brief overview of their project.

Participants can bring their own dataset, discuss a project and recruit a
team of collaborators on site. Access to free big online databases of MRI
images will be also available during the three days, for new creative ideas
to be tested.
This workshop is also an opportunity to learn methods, develop skills and
collaborate with other participants.

Participants will be supervised and receive advice on methods from a team
of very capable nerds including Roberto Toro, Michel Thiebaut de Schotten,
Alexandros Goulas, Julien Lefèvre, Daniel Margulies and Leonardo Cerliani
throughout the three days.

A constant flow of food and drinks (especially coffee…) will be provided
during the conference breaks.

We kindly request an online preregistration (70€) in order to cover the
expenses for the venue, the equipment and the food/drinks.

Deadline is 16th of October 2016.
