OHBM Open Science Special Interest Group Hackathon

Registration for the fourth OHBM Hackathon is now open!

The 2016 OHBM Hackathon is an official satellite event of the 22nd Annual Meeting of the Organization of Human Brain Mapping (OHBM) that is organized by the newly formed OHBM Open Science Special Interest Group. This unique 3-day event (June 23-25) will be held at Univercité, a hub for collaborative science and technology located close to Lausanne, Switzerland. The goal of the hackathon is to bring together researchers with disparate backgrounds from the OHBM community to collaborate on open science projects in neuroimaging. In keeping with the spirit of prior OHBM hackathons, all participants will have the opportunity to propose projects and engage in a number of open challenges.

The spirit of the Hackathon will also be continuing into the OHBM meeting in Geneva from June 26-30, where a collaboration space will be available in the conference venue. This space will be open to all OHBM attendees to discuss, present, and continue working on hackathon projects.

Participants are encouraged to post project ideas to www.brainhack.org and to submit a report describing their project to the 2016 Brainhack Proceedings that will be published by Gigascience after the event.

Please join the Brainhack slack team (https://brainhack-slack-invite.herokuapp.com/) for updated information on the developing Hackathon content and to contribute your own ideas. Please visit our website (events.brainhack.org/OHBM2016) for updates on the program and recommendations for accommodation and transportation. 

The registration cost is $100 USD and includes on-site meals and refreshments.   Participation is limited, so we encourage you to register now. The spirit of the Hackathon will also be continuing into the OHBM meeting in Geneva from June 26-30, where a collaboration space will be available in the conference venue. This space will be open to all OHBM attendees to discuss, present, and continue working on hackathon projects.

The 2016 OHBM Hackathon is generously supported by the Ludmer Centre for Neuroinformatics and Mental Health, Organization of Human Brain Mapping, Wellcome Trust, and OpenfMRI.

We look forward to collaborating with you this June!

In latest DIPY 0.11.0 you can find 3 new frameworks. Diffusion kurtosis imaging, affine image registration and contextual enhancement of ODFs.

With the addition of affine image registration we are now able to do both linear and nonlinear registration natively in Python without the need of calling external libraries.

Here are the relevant tutorials for the new frameworks:

Enjoy the world of cutting edge research software!! :D

Hi! I just pushed a new update to braincatalogue.org. The Brain Catalogue is an open database of MRI brain data of an increasing number species. The Brain Catalogue also has an online tool for MRI segmentation, to enable citizen scientists to work on high quality comparative neuroanatomy data. In the new version, I changed the design a bit, but most importantly, I added an 'undo' button to the MRI annotation tool (yes, there was no undo before...). Could you please give it a try and let me know the bugs you find? You can just leave a comment here, but the best place to report issues is on github: https://github.com/r03ert0/braincatalogue. There's a brief introduction to braincatalogue.org's annotation tool here: http://siphonophore.org/blog/2014/09/02/collaborative-segmentation-of-the-black-rhinoceros-mesh-available/

thank you!

waifu2x is an image-enlargement algorithm that uses a convolutional neural network instead of a conventional mathematical algorithm. Only catch might be that it looks like it's trained on anime images, so it might not work as well on non-anime images.
