The Google Summer of Code is a long-running program sponsored by Google where students get a stipend for pursuing coding projects in open source. INCF has participated in the program since 2011 as a mentoring organization.
Springer Link has just published a Neuroinformatics article on INCF. The article was written by the members of the INCF community, and describes the importance for standardization in data science and the role that INCF plays in the process.
- As a part of our efforts to make available educational materials in neuroethics, we are proud to announce our partnership with the International Neuroethics Society (INS) to disseminate a webinar series covering a range of neuroethics topics.
Members of the community are asked to provide feedback on the DAQCORD Guidelines - a framework for achieving high-quality data by providing a descriptive system for planning and reporting observational studies. This is a part of INCF’s Standards and Best Practices review process to ensure the best practice being reviewed provides value to the community.
The International Neuroinformatics Coordinating Facility (INCF) has received a grant of $200,000 over two years from the Dana Foundation to support development and curation of educational materials in neuroethics for the INCF TrainingSpace.
An NSF-funded multi-investigator collaboration is seeking individuals to help develop a standardized format for exchanging computational models among neuroscience, cognitive science and machine learning.
BrainsCAN is inviting applications from outstanding neuroscientists who identify with an underrepresented group (including Black, Indigenous, LGBTQ2S+, people with disabilities, and women) for 10 available postdoctoral positions.
INCF has supported the OHBM Open Science SIG and Hackathon since its inception in 2012, and is happy to play a part to ensure their continued success. Below you can read the report from the 2020 edition of the OHBM Brainhac.
