Brainhack Global Australasia’s collaborative hackathon has been announced for 2022, supported by National Imaging Facility (NIF) and the Australian Research Data Commons–funded Australian Characterisation Commons at Scale (ACCS).

The Australian branch of the inclusive event will be hosted in-person for the first time at the University of Sydney from 30 Nov – 2 Dec, inviting attendance from students, post-graduates and faculty members to develop tools and collaborate on world-wide projects as part of the global hackathon.

The purpose of Brainhack is to bridge the data science and neuroscience research communities to advance the progress of brain and nervous system research, and to collaboratively build tools that foster open and reproducible practices.

Researchers from a range of disciplines and geographic locations will work together on community led projects that foster collaboration and innovation, as well as connecting the Australian neuroscientific community to international projects.

A number of successful projects have been borne out of past Australian Brainhack meetings, including Neurodesk, a flexible, scalable and browser-based data analysis environment for reproducible neuroimaging.
