- Two leading standards bodies launch Neuroscience Community, powering a global data network that will speed up answers in autism, Parkinson’s, addiction, and more
The Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (GA4GH) and the International Neuroinformatics Coordinating Facility (INCF) launched a new group to lay the groundwork for connecting global neuroscience and genomic data.
INCF has been working to facilitate data sharing in neuroscience since 2005 by supporting community-driven standardization and interoperability efforts, and ensuring impact through training and advocacy activities. Your contribution enables us to provide open science resources and training activities to the global neuroscience community.
In basic as well as applied neuroscience research, there is an unmet need for systematic, standardized and well-defined data organization practices and proper data description. Standards are needed at all levels: for data collection and description, for reporting methods and documenting workflows, for describing and sharing code for data processing and analysis.
Last month, from September 18-22, INCF virtually hosted another iteration of our Neuroinformatics Assembly 2023. Neuroinformatics Assembly is the annual gathering of the INCF network and serves as its major outreach outlet for the network.
The Institute of Systems Neuroscience (https://ins-amu.fr), a joint Inserm-University research unit located on the Timone campus in Marseille, is seeking to recruit a project manager under the authority of the team leader and institute director, Viktor Jirsa.
An exceptional scientific leadership opportunity to lead the Centre and the next set of fundamental discoveries in brain research and mental health. As Scientific Director, you will continue to shape the bold, global vision for the Centre that leverages the computational and analytical assets, and strengths of CAMH, the University of Toronto, and the Canadian and international neuroscience and data science communities.
In a continuing effort to identify barriers to data sharing and reuse among neuroscience researchers worldwide, INCF’s Infrastructure Committee is redistributing a brief anonymous survey.
INCF and its Training and Education Council is arranging another instance of the Introductory Course in Neuroinformatics, this time on location at the University of Washington in Seattle, Washington, on October 2-4 2023.
INCF is asking for your help to review the Stimulating Peripheral Activity to Relieve Conditions (SPARC) data structure to assess its value as a community standard.
- Call for community review of Digital SWC Reconstructions Describing Neuron Morphology (SWC) - deadline August 15, 2023
