We are excited to announce that Brainhack Australasia will take place on *Nov
29th - Dec 3rd*! Brainhack Australasia is an online satellite event of the
international Brainhack Global <https://brainhack.org/global2021/> effort.
Brainhack is a unique conference format that brings researchers together
across the neuroscience disciplines to work together on open-source
projects for the benefit of neuroscience, to learn new skills, and make new
connections along the way. Additional information about Brainhacks can be
found in our recent publication in Neuron
We invite researchers of all career stages (faculty, postdocs, graduate
students etc.) to join us for 5 days of training and hacking. For more
specific information about the event, visit our website here
