Our most recent newsletter, Issue 2 2020, has been published. The quarterly INCF email newsletter offers updates on neuroscience and neuroinformatics activities, and the latest news from INCF and its community.
Membership in INCF gives you a voice in the discussions around standardization, training, and open science by either direct or elected representation on our different councils and committees. Other benefits include discounts to events, products, and services, and the possibility to acquire funding for developing standards and best practices.
The NWB Team will host the 9th NWB User Days Workshop remotely on September 21-23. The workshop will focus primarily on user training, including lessons for complete beginners to NWB and training in more advanced usage of NWB.
- INCF teams up with Neuromatch Academy and NeuroHackademy to provide training platforms for thousands of virtual participants
INCF is always looking for ways to support neuroscience training activities, and we are very happy to provide the INCF training platforms to support two large training initiatives taking place this summer: the Neuromatch Academy and the NeuroHackademy.
- Multiple postdoc and PhD positions are available in the labs of Carsten Mehring (University of Freiburg), Domenico Formica and Giovanni di Pino (Università Campus Bio-Medico di Roma) as well as Dario Farina and Etienne Burdet (Imperial College London), on motor control and movement augmentation, in the context of the EU project NIMA.
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.
