HBM Hackathon – June 5-7, 2014 – Berlin, GermanyMore information on the OHBM website available here Register now!
This three day Hackathon aims to encourage project development and open neuroscience through collaborative projects. The spirit of the Hackathon will continue into the OHBM Annual Meeting, June 8-12, 2014, in Hamburg through an on-site meeting space that will be available throughout the conference.
The OHBM Hackathon, is a pre-meeting analysis and resource building competition designed to accelerate the connection between open neuroscience and cloud computing.

Summary: Bibliometrics, which explores citation practices in the scientific literature, offers an empirical entry point for understanding research communities. By incorporating information about citations and referencing from the neuroimaging literature with reported brain coordinates, we can begin to investigate the relationship between subfields and reported brain areas. This project will incorporate citation information (articles referenced in a publication and those articles that cite it) into...read more
Summary: This project will build on a starting set of IPython notebooks to replace BIPS as a environment for scalable, reproducible analysis and interactive exploration of data. The project will also ensure easy interoperability with data submission sites such as Neurovault and synthesis platforms such as Neurosynth.

Summary: A brainstorming + proof of concept implementations for the next evolution of Nipype (support for py3k, simpler semantic model, CI testing with testkraut, integration with biopython, automated feedback to underlying software developers).

Summary: NIDM is a data sharing model that’s being built to capture details of brain imaging data, analysis and results. ResearchObjects are containers to capture publications, data, workflows. The goal of this project will be to reconcile these efforts into an interoperable model and take advantage of ROHub, a platform for collecting, tracking and disseminating RO.

Summary: MURFI2 describes an open communication protocol for realtime fMRI. This has already been implemented for Siemens scanners. This project will extend this protocol to be supported in GE and Philips scanners. Those interested can also work on improving the client side technology for various realtime paradigms.

Summary: FreeSurfer often requires substantial manual edits. Can we determine ways in which we can autodetect which surfaces need edits? Can we use other preprocessing steps to make FreeSurfer perform better? Can we avoid manual intervention altogether? Contact: For more information, contact Satra Ghosh: satra (at) mit.eduread more
Summary: CirrusScience (Cloud Infrastructure for Reproducible Research and Utilities for Sharing Science) is a platform as a service effort to bring together interoperable services. Over the period of the hackathon, we will coordinate that web-service projects start adopting standard API strategies and metadata representation methods for communicating with each other. Another key component of this infrastructure is to use tools such as docker and vagrant to make peer to peer computing services available. We will implement such peer to...read more
