A Centralized Project Gallery

The Brainhack Global team aims to create a (de)centralized collaborative working platform that would facilitate & increase across-site collaborations and interactions while also giving visibility to the projects run under Brainhack Global as much as possible. We encourage sharing ideas, experiences and knowledge across parties, removing the barriers and allowing contributions by researchers from all around the globe and a myriad of disciplines.

If you would like to submit a project, please do so by opening an issue here or reading the submission guidelines down below the gallery to get more details.

Brainhack Global 2020 Project Submission Guideline

Why a Centralised Project Submission?

As the Brainhack Global team, we aim to create a (de)centralized collaborative working platform that would facilitate & increase across-site collaborations and interactions while also giving visibility to the projects run under Brainhack Global as much as possible. Creating such a (de)centralized platform and workflow, we aim to encourage sharing ideas, experiences and knowledge across parties, removing the barriers and allowing contributions by researchers from all around the globe and a myriad of disciplines.

Given that this year Brainhack Global will be run virtually, (de)centralized project submission and listing platform will allow you to submit your initial project call to gather interests from researchers from every single Brainhack Global event location.

The ideal project should convey ideas with respect to the development of tools, methodologies, guidelines and begets to brainstorming new ideas that would facilitate the implementation of open science practices in neuroscience and create more opportunities for collaborative work and information exchange within the community.

If you would like to get more ideas about:

  • how to design your project and what to expect from a Brainhack experience,
  • how to lead a project,
  • how to be an attendee of a project

Please read our How to Guideline for Leading and Attending to Brainhack Projects!

How will it work?

Where to start?

In order to submit a project to the Brainhack Global 2020 Project Gallery, please follow these steps:

  1. Register with an event listed in the Brainhack Global 2020 Events.
  2. Create a GitHub account.
  3. Go to the Brainhack 2020 GitHub Repository.
  4. Click on the New Issue button on the up right.
  5. Create a new issue by clicking on the Get Started button beside Project submission template.
  6. Fill in the necessary/required information as requested.
  7. Please make sure that the information about your project is as clear and brief as possible sharing the necessary links that point reviewers/attendees to the right resources/repository and more detailed information about your project.
  8. Please make sure to follow the instructions in the How to Guideline for Leading and Attending to Brainhack Projects to increase the diversity and inclusivity in your project work and define the tasks, roles and the skills that you are expecting from your attendees accordingly. Make sure that you have room for newcomers to give them a chance to learn from more seniored colleagues and share their own experiences.
  9. Choose/create the label that is pointing to the event location that you are registered with.
  10. Follow the instructions given in the issue template on how to choose the labels that defines the scope of your project best. By assinging the labels, you will increase the visibility of your project to curate attendees' attention to your project and will help us to match your event with the attendees having the requested/matching skill sets and interests.
  11. After you are done filling in the necessary/required information, open the issue to submit your project to be reviewed.
  12. Do not forget that you can make amendments in your issue template as necessary/required to do so along with and after the reviewing process.

What happens next?

Once you have submitted your project, a reviewer from the event that you have registered with will follow up with you and will review the information in your issue. They may request some changes if deemed necessary. If all necessary/required information is in place, the project will be marked as ‘status:web_ready’ and will be listed on the Brainhack Global 2020 Projects page after a short delay. A subpage dedicated to your own project will be automatically created. In the meantime, you can still continue to make changes in/to your issue.

This year, Brainhack Global also offers a new feature to assign event attendees to projects across the globe based on the matching between expertise/skill sets that attendees want to acquire and the projects are looking for. Once the attendee registrations are completed, the matching algorithm will be run by the local organizers themselves based on the information provided by the attendees in the participant registration form. The attendees will be automatically sent an email that is listing the best fitting projects with their expertise and interests. However, the preference of the project the attendees will participate will be based on the attendees own decision. They could either go with the suggested options or they could choose among the other projects listed in the Brainhack Global 2020 Projects page. Based on the communication channels listed in the project issues, the attendees will contact the project leaders as necessary.

Please be aware that, at the very early stage of the interactions, attendees might just want to contact you for more information to make sure that the project is a good fit to the aims they want to achieve from a Brainhack. Therefore, please make sure that you welcome all attentions and explain your project with care and guide them as necessary.
