Cameron Craddock, PhD, and Michael Milham, MD, PhD, organized Brainhack Vienna, September 18 – September 20. Brainhack is a scientific workshop that encourages interdisciplinary collaboration to maintain reliability and reproducibility in neuroscience research and to translate scientific findings into clinical biomarkers and treatment targets. Dr. Milham gave a talk on “The Importance of Reproducibility and Reliability for Connectomics Research,” and Dr. Craddock presented “Open Science Resources for Studying Connectome Reproducibility and Reliability.” Brainhack Vienna was supported in part by the Child Mind Institute.
From September 21 – September 23, Dr. Milham, Dr. Craddock, Aki Nikolaidis and Ting Xu attended the “Fifth Biennial Conference on Resting State and Brain Connectivity,” also in Vienna. At the conference, Mike gave a lecture entitled, “Brain-Based Biomarkers for Psychiatry: New Directions and Next Steps,” Ting and Aki presented posters, and Cameron spoke as part of a symposium on “The Emerging Field of Predictive Analytics in Neuroimaging: Applications, Challenges and Perspectives.”
