INCF Special Interest Groups
The Special Interest Groups (SIGs) lets INCF capture ideas and advance work in the scientific areas that are of most interest to its community.
In SIGs, users and developers can collaboratively work to develop, refine and implement community standards and best practices. The SIGs will also serve as the focus for getting agreement and community buy-in on the use of these standards and best practices. In doing this, they will represent and further the INCF mission; to advance data reuse and reproducibility in brain research through the development of FAIR community standards and best practices as applied to tools and infrastructure.
The SIGs will play a pivotal role in determining INCF’s Strategic Action Areas and thus where INCF invests its funds to support community standards and their implementation.
All community members are welcome to be SIG members, regardless of their location in the world.
INCF gives support with group communications, coordination between groups, and assistance with logistics and outreach.
Questions and proposals for new SIGs can be directed to Malin Sandström firstname.lastname@example.org.
