We are looking to attract both clinical researchers and as many clinical research 'geeks' as it is possible to accommodate, so this invitation is also extended to the Brisskit open source developer community.

We will organise a GoogleGroup and a Twitter feed so that clinical research challenges can be shared and discussed online well before the event itself. All hackday project ideas will be logged onto the Brisskit wiki before the event.
Accomodation arrangements and options for overnight stays to be annouced.
