  • Call for Special Interest Groups early 2020

    INCF is calling for community proposals for Special Interest Groups (SIGs) to be formed or renewed in early 2020. The call is open both to new and existing INCF SIGs.

    SIGs are community-initiated groups where users and developers can meet and work collaboratively to develop, refine, and implement new community standards and best practices (SBPs) to be proposed for endorsement. The SIGs also serve as the focus for getting agreement and community buy-in on the use of these standards and best practices.

  • Google Summer of Code 2020

    INCF will apply for GSoC 2020 and are now assembling mentors and ideas for projects. If you want to join us, email your project idea(s) to Malin Sandström ( latest end of December.
