Community review helps to optimize new Standards and Best Practices (SBPs) by allowing those who will use them to highlight areas of improvement before the SBPs are accepted.
Members of the community are asked to provide feedback on the NIDM-Results - a model for standardizing neuroimaging analysis results. This is a part of INCF’s Standards and Best Practices review process to ensure the standard being reviewed provides value to the community.
Members of the community are asked to provide feedback on the NIX Format - a model for storing annotated datasets across a variety of disciplines. This is a part of INCF’s Standards and Best Practices review process to ensure the standard being reviewed provides value to the community.
The Best Negative Data Prize was created in 2018 to incentivise researchers to publish their negative results. Submissions are open from Apr 7 to May 31, 2020 for this year’s award of €10,000 which was generously sponsored by Cohen Veterans Bioscience.
The NISO Taxonomy, Definitions, and Recognition Badging Scheme Working Group has drafted a standard for the names and definitions of reproducibility levels within the computational and computing sciences.
We are excited to announce the 21 INCF projects that have been accepted for Google Summer of Code 2020! Stay tuned for more content on GSoC, including mentor profiles and posts detailing each project.
Open, online, 3-week intensive tutorial-based computational neuroscience training event (July 13-31, 2020). Participants from undergraduate to professors as well as industry are welcome.
Since the first Google Season of Docs (GSoD) in 2019, the INCF network has served as a mentoring organization providing mentors from the neuroinformatics community.
Before the organization applications are due, we are soliciting ideas for projects that are aligned with INCF community activities
- 8th Annual NWB User Days Workshop which will be held remotely May 12-15. The focus will be primarily on user training, including lessons for complete beginners as well as training in more advanced features. There will be breakout sessions where the developers of NWB-enabled tools will train users in how to use NWB to access state-of-the-art analysis and visualization tools.
Partnership with the INCF has enabled us to connect with our user-base on a global scale. Submitting NWB to the Supported Best Practice (SBP) program was a clear next step in our partnership. The SBP review process provides valuable information for both the community as well as the NWB team.
