*Registration is now open for Brain-hack in Paris: Global Edition*

Brain-hack aims at promoting the interaction between scientists, developers
and artists interested in the brain. Questions can evolve around

   - the investigation of brain anatomy and function based on magnetic
   resonance imaging or post mortem dissection
   - the evolution of nervous systems across species
   - the variability of brain features across healthy participants
   - the insurgence of brain pathologies
   - and there is no limit to artistic reflections in any form of art.

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 integrates all levels of expertise and is also an opportunity
to learn methods, develop skills and collaborate with other participants.

Join the fun!

Each of the three days will begin with an “*Ignite* Session” in which
speakers will give 15 minute talks that will address wide questions that
would benefit from open, interdisciplinary collaborations.

The Open Hacking sessions where participants can work on their projects or
participate in 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. Thus far, these projects include:

   - 'Supervised software installation' (Katja Heuer)
   - 'White matter dissection workshop' (Michel, Stephy)
   - 'Principles of brain evolution' (Roberto Toro)
   - 'Data reduction: PCA, ICA, Kmean' (Leonardo Cerliani)
   - 'Brain art performance: body painting' (Gesine Merwedel)

   - 'List-other-project' (Otter Pearson)
   - 'Yet-another-one' (Yet Ann Otter Pearson)

Participants will be supervised and receive advice on methods from a team
of very capable nerds throughout the three days.

*!!!Deadline for registration is 25th of February 2017!!!*


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

We kindly request an online preregistration (100€) in order to cover the
