On the weekend of 18-19th November, the first edition of Aspects of
Neuroscience - Hackathon 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, to share the knowledge on data mining and brain
research, but also to share the data and promote open science. We provide
with a list of proposed open-access datasets, but we also encourage
participants to share their own data during the event.

At the moment, we opened the call for project proposals. 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. Each proposal should indicate:

[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
