Brainhack Montreal 2015


Brainhack MTL is coming back!



For the second consecutive year, we are organizing Brainhack MTL, a hackathon focused on neuroimaging tools development and intended for an interdisciplinary community fascinated by the brain: computer scientists, engineers, statisticians as well as psychologists, biologists, artists, journalists, philosophers, etc. The attendees may propose or choose a project, and collaborate during two intensive days. Furthermore, oral sessions will be held periodically to allow participants to present the progress of their project or initiate a discussion on a particular topic. Potential projects include quantitative MRI for exploring tissue microstructure, open-source software, new tools for multimodal visualization, etc. The list of past and present projects is available on Don’t hesitate to add yours!
