Brain Hack POA -  

Affiliated to BrainHack EDT

This page is for BrainHack EDT 2014. For Brainhack Americas in 2015 (October 24 & 25), please visite this website. For registration go to this link.


Brainhack is a unique conference that convenes researchers from across the globe and a myriad of disciplines to work together on innovative projects related to neuroscience. This year, teams working from Porto Alegre will join the other teams in North America developing interesting neuroscience projects on October 23, 24 & 25, 2014.
For the Porto Alegre edition, a limited number of 30 participants will join us for a weekend of intense hacking. Refreshments will be provided throughout the weekend.
Check out the main Brainhack website for further information.

This is a Free event and is limited to 30 people. Therefore we ask whom registers for the event, comes to BrainHack. Some refreshments will be provided during the conference.
