Taking place on July 12th and 13th, the HackerFest is a great occasion for developers, designers, inventors and creators to meet in the outdoor for a multi-topic marathon! The CONP will be present to promote open science and collaborative research. Come chat with us!

Open science is a movement aimed at making scientific research (publications, data, physical samples, and software) accessible to all researchers. The Canadian Open Neuroscience Platform (CONP) is a platform which provides the software infrastructure for sharing and analyzing mass amounts of distributed data. Put yourself in a researchers shoes ten years from now, what kind of software tools and processes will you use to perform research on your data?

  • Will the paper lab notebook be replaced by a shareable digital lab notebook?
  • Scientists are writing code to analyze their data, but who checks their code? Could you build a network of people that are willing and have time to review code?
  • AI is advancing at a rapid pace and there’s a need for machine-readable datasets. What are the requirements for a software that automatically annotates datasets? How would research activities change with increasing automation?
