Dear MCX/MMC registered users,

We have not run dedicated in-personal workshop over the last 4 years due to the pandemic, and we missed you so much!

I am excited to let you know that our in-person training workshop is finally coming back, and growing even stronger! We have a lot to share!

We will be holding our 5th International MCX Training Workshop (Day 1-2) joint with our Inaugural (1st) NeuroJSON Open-data Workshop/Hackathon (Day 3-4) between June 23-26 2024 on the Boston campus of Northeastern University, USA.

  • The MCX training workshop will give detailed hands-on training on all the software packages that we have extensively improved/extended over the past 5 years, and utilize MCX Cloud and Google Colab Jupyter Notebook for interactive training.
  • We will also officially launch our extensively developed (for two decades) comprehensive DOT image reconstruction MATLAB/Octave toolbox, Redbird-m, that is behind nearly all of our breast DOT publications.
  • NeuroJSON workshop will also include training on large-scale data analysis using MCX/MMC with the free data resources on NeuroJSON.io.

Event Address:        ISEC (805 Columbus Ave, Boston, MA 02115, USA)
Dates:                       June 23-24 (MCX Training Workshop) and June 25-26 (NeuroJSON Workshop/Hackathon)
Website:                   https://mcx.space, https://neurojson.org, https://neurojson.io
Tentative agenda:   Coming soon!

Seats are limited, please use the below link to register at your earliest convenience to secure your enrollment.


We also provide funding (competitive) to support 2-3 students traveling from other institutions to join our training events. If you are interested in applying for the travel grant (covering up to $500 per domestic student and $1000 per international student), please indicate so in the below registration form, and submit an application, including your up-to-date CV, a 2-page personal statement and minimum 1 support letter within 10 days after the registration. Details can be found in the registration form. Low-cost campus housing options are also provided.

There is also a possibility that we may organize a second in-person MCX/NeuroJSON training workshop in the middle of August. This is still to be determined - but we will let you know once the decision is decided.

We are looking forward to welcoming you, our friends, collaborators, and users in Boston in June!
