INCF Special Interest Groups
The Special Interest Groups (SIGs) lets INCF capture ideas and advance work in the scientific areas that are of most interest to its community.
INCF is calling for community proposals for Special Interest Group (SIG) meetings to be held in Montréal on August 8, 2018, the day before the Neuroinformatics Congress. The call is open both to new and existing INCF SIGs.
In SIGs, users and developers can collaboratively work to develop, refine and implement community standards and best practices. The SIGs will also serve as the focus for getting agreement and community buy-in on the use of these standards and best practices. In doing this, they will represent and further the INCF mission; to advance data reuse and reproducibility in brain research through the development of FAIR community standards and best practices as applied to tools and infrastructure.
All community members are welcome to be SIG members, regardless of their location in the world.
INCF gives support with group communications, coordination between groups, and assistance with logistics and outreach.
Questions and proposals for new SIGs can be directed to Malin Sandström.
The SIGs listed below are all active and open to new members. If you are interested in joining a SIG, please contact them on the listed address.
