- 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.
This roadmap provides an overview of the existing and developing standards in the field of neurotechnologies for brain-machine interfacing. The focus is on systems that provide a closed-loop interaction with artificial devices based on information extracted from measurements of activity in the nervous system.
The developers of the Marmoset Connectivity Atlas have published a paper describing the resource in Nature Communications. The Marmoset Connectivity Atlas is the result of a collaboration between the INCF Polish and Australian Nodes that was facilitated by the INCF seed funding scheme.
This event is designed to inform the community of the brain data-driven efforts in the international arena, and open the discussion as to how we can combine our resources to achieve greater international cooperation in openly sharing data, AI and best practices - to enable us all to move forward synergistically.
- A new NeuroView paper in Neuron describes the International Brain Initiative, IBI, a consortium of big brain projects across the world who aim to coordinate efforts across existing and emerging national and regional brain initiatives. IBI was established in recognition of the fact that no single initiative will be able to tackle the challenge to better understand the brain.
Do you want to learn how to model the brain and its parts? The European Institute for Theoretical Neuroscience (EITN) offers a spring school in Paris on theoretical and computational neuroscience.
Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is a global program focused on bringing more student developers into open source software development. Since 2011, the INCF network has served as a mentoring organization providing mentors from the neuroinformatics community.
- The Program Committee for the INCF Congress on Neuroinformatics 2020 (Seattle, USA, 20 - 21 August 2020) is soliciting proposals for investigator presentations to complement keynote presentations from leaders in the field. Investigator presentations should explore the latest developments, challenges/opportunities, and the role of standards and best practices in advancing
- Brainhack Warsaw aims to meet new, enthusiastic researchers, make new friendships in academia, learn, share the knowledge and also promote open science in the spirit of the whole Brainhack community .
