- Get Your Brain Together Hackathons | Materials related to the Get Your Brain Together Neuroimage Registration Hackathons
The Get Your Brain Together hackathons bring together neuroimage data generators, image registration researchers, and neurodata compute infrastructure providers for a hands-on, collaborative event. This community collaboration aims to create reproducible, open source resources that enable discovery of the structure and function of brains.
There are three components to the hackathon. First, the primary goal of each hackathon is the generation of a Reproducible Resource for registration and analysis of a specific brain imaging modality. Tutorial sessions share how to work with open source registration tools, open access datasets, or neurodata archives. Birds-of-a-Feather (BOF) Breakout sessions enable participants interested in collaborating to work on relevant topics.
This hackathon will focus on registration of mouse brain lightsheet volumes to the Common Coordinate Framework version 3.1 (CCFv3.1).
Example ways to participate:
- Contribute a registration pipeline resource to register the challenge datasets.
- Give a tutorial about your registration tools. A pre-recorded or live presentation, along with example code and recipes, can teach a data analyst how to run your tool and use the output on the challenge dataset and/or another open dataset.
- Come and learn about registration from experts in the field.
How does it work?
Before the Hackathon
- Register for the event.
- Sign up for the mailing list.
- Optionally prepare a tutorial or organize a Birds-of-a-Feather (BoF) Breakout.
During the Hackathon
The week will start 9 AM Pacific Time, 12 AM Eastern Time, Monday, May 22nd in an introductory all-hands videoconference.
Following the introduction, participate in the Reproducible Resource Challenge, join the tutorials, and take part in BoF breakouts. Please bring a laptop.
At the end of the day on Tuesday, participants will delegate one member to present their registration processing pipelines, results, and discuss lessons learned.
