The ITRN Kickoff Event will be the first public event organized by ITRN -- our very own debutants' ball. We will present the Network -- its goals and the way it works -- and the first initiatives that the Steering Committee has put in place. In addition, we'll have a keynote from the great Russell Poldrack, a Professor at Stanford and one of the leaders of the reproducibility movement in Neuroimaging.
The Kickoff Event will happen Thursday 14 October, 4pm CEST. We were hoping to hold the event in person, but the COVID situation suggested otherwise in the end. We will e-meet on Zoom; a registration will be necessary (and free of charge, of course) at this link. For those who will not be able to make it to the Zoom, no worries: we will also stream the event on YouTube.
