INCF Community Engagement officer Malin Sandström has administered INCF’s partition in Google Summer of Code for 6 years, but never visited the yearly GSoC Mentor Summit.
- It was a very useful event, she says. And it was fantastic to meet our students and mentors in person.
INCF has worked hard in the past months to optimize the services we provide to the neuroscience community, and we’re finally ready to announce the improvements we have done in order to serve the community better! First up is our new membership models - we have expanded the ways the community can be active participants and contributors to our mission to develop, evaluate, endorse, and implement standards and best practices that embrace the principles of open, FAIR, and citable neuroscience.
- Call for community review: Neurodata Without Borders: Neurophysiology (NWB:N) 2.0 - a data standard for neurophysiology as an INCF-endorsed standard
NWB:N 2.0 is a data standard for neurophysiology, providing neuroscientists with a common standard to share, archive, use, and build common analysis tools for neurophysiology data. The standard is designed to store a variety of neurophysiology data, including from intracellular and extracellular electrophysiology experiments, optical physiology experiments, as well as tracking and stimulus data.
INCF will be present as exhibitor at Neuroscience 2019 in Chicago, IL, October 19-23. As usual, we will be co-located with a number of other neuroinformatics exhibitors, and we will host demos from our member countries and other INCF-associated projects. Come find us in booth 2117!
A Postdoctoral Scholar position is available in the Keator lab in the Department of Psychiatry & Human Behavior at the University of California, Irvine, School of Medicine campus. The lab is a multi-disciplinary environment focused in three principle domains: (1) Identifying brain-based biomarkers of dementia; (2) The development of advanced machine learning models for problems in neuroimaging and medicine; (3) Developing biomedical informatics tools and techniques for structured data exchange and reproducibility in neuroimaging.
The annual INCF Congress provides a meeting place for researchers in all fields related to neuroinformatics. Join us for keynotes from top neuroscientists, community sessions and poster- and demo sessions.
INCF is proud to announce the official launch of TrainingSpace (TS), an online hub that aims to make neuroscience educational materials more accessible to the global neuroscience community developed in collaboration with INCF, HBP, SfN, FENS, IBRO, CONP, IEEE, BD2K, and iNeuro Initiative.
- The NeuroML project focuses on standard descriptions of neuroscience model components, in the form of development of an XML (eXtensible Markup Language) based description language that provides a common data format for defining and exchanging descriptions of neuronal cell and network models.
INCF is calling for community proposals for Special Interest Group (SIG) and Working Group (WG) meetings to be held in Warsaw on August 31, the day before the Neuroinformatics Congress. The call is open both to new and existing INCF SIGs/WGs.
