Hello NIF/SciCrunch community!

Please take a moment to read this message from the Organization for Human Brain Mapping:

“OHBM Hackathon 2016 – Stipends Application

The registration for the fourth OHBM Hackathon is now open! Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, the OHBM special interest group in open science will award a limited number of stipends to students attending the OHBM Hackathon 2016, including free registration and 500 USD for travel and accommodations. If you would like to apply for one of the stipends, please email the following material to info@brainhack.org by Friday April 15th, 2016 11:59PM EST:

(1) A one page Brainhack project proposal

(2) A one page biosketch.

(3) Proof that you are a graduate student or post-doc (typically a letter from your supervisor).

The organizing committee will determine the winners based on the merits of the submitted materials, as well as geographical, expertise and gender diversity. The winners will be encouraged to develop their project during the hackathon, notably using the brainhack slack ahead of the event. All hackathon participants will have the opportunity to submit a report on their project for publication in the 2016 Brainhack Proceedings (see the 2015 call for reference). Awards will be announced by email by May 1st.

The “Open Science” SIG would like to acknowledge the generous support of the Organization for Human Brain Mapping, the Ludmer Center for NeuroInformatics and Mental Health, the Wellcome Trust and OpenfMRI.”
