More about

The Brainhack Networks is an indipendent event sponsored by the organizing committee of the Network Neuroscience satellite of the International School and Conference on Network Science (NetSci 2018).

The theme of the hackathon will broadly cover a variety of topics related to network science tools for neuroscience/imaging research, including code development, data modeling and analysis, as well as results interpretation.

The goal is to bring together researchers with disparate backgrounds from around the world to collaborate on innovative open science projects related to brain networks, or connectomes. While the theme sets the type of projects and presentations of the event, it is not meant to be restrictive. Participants are encouraged to post project ideas before via the dedicated form.

An international team of renown experts in the field of network science and neuroscience will coordinate the event in an effort to boost the realization of the projects.

Join the brainhack-networks channel of the team to receive upcoming news and contribute with your own ideas and projects.


Propose your project

Do you need more brains & hands to realize your project? Do you feel your data have something to say but don't know how to make them talk? Submit your project and get people involved! You will have the unique opportunity to be assisted by our team of experts.


Share your kowledge

You don't have a specific project, but you are interested in network neuroscience and wanted to know how does it work in practice? Join us and share your expertise in any related domain (eg, data viz)! We will provide data and tools to free your creativity!


Hack brain networks

If you love developing and optimizing code and pipelines, then you are in the right place! Our community has a tremendous need of deploying efficient software to model and analyze large heterogeneous datasets. Come join and hack with us!
