CCP PET-MR Hackathon 1

Thursday, July 26, 2018 - 12:00 to Friday, July 27, 2018 - 16:00

The first CCP PET-MR Hackathon will take place at Atlas Visualization Facility of Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, starting with lunch at noon on Thursday 26 and finishing 4pm on Friday 27, 20018.

Topics to be hacked at are:

  • Finish off SIRF 1.2 milestone.
    • Reconstruction data from the GE Signa PET/MR
    • Adding image geometry to SIRF
  • Implement new algorithms in Python
    • use CCPi algorithms for MR.
    • Conjugate gradient
    • MAP-EM and other PET algorithms
  • (optionally in a small group): using SWIG to create Python/MATLAB interfaces

Registration is now closed.


The Hackathon will take place at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory. The access to the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory is restricted, so you will have to register at the reception.

Registration at the reception

Registration for the CCPPETMR Hackathlon is due to be active between 11:30 and 13 at the reception (building R75).

If you registered to the event your name is on the guest list so you should be able to register outside the previous slot. Make sure you call Edoardo or Evgueni on their mobile. The reception should have the numbers.
