Senior Lecturer and Co-editor KongFatt Wong-Lin calls for contributions to a Special Issue on Multiscale Modelling and Analysis in Neuroscience in the Journal of Neuroscience Methods. The Special Issue is focused on state-of-the-art: (i) computational modelling techniques; (ii) theoretical, mathematical or numerical methods; (iii) analysis of data; (iv) curation of data; or (v) combinations of the above. For more information, please see:
The BIDS community has voted in a Steering Group of five candidates, chosen as a slate. The slate chosen is the Guiomar Niso chaired slate with Melanie Ganz, Robert Oostenveld, Russ Poldrack, and Kirstie Whitaker!
INCF had a booth at SfN 2019 in Chicago, held on October 19–23. The booth space was used for demos of INCF community projects and tools, among them Neurodata Without Borders, NITRC, ReproNim, g-node’s NIX, the BIDS standard and the INCF-developed tool Neurobot.
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.
