INCF Program on Standards for Data Sharing: New perspectives on workflows and data management for the analysis of electrophysiological data
Year of publication : 2013

Aim: The presentations and discussions of the workshop focused on three major issues related to workflows in electrophysiology: (i) the development of data structures and software libraries that enable interfacing of data from various sources and integration of methods for data manipulation and analysis, (ii) documentation and provenance tracking solutions to support reproducible analysis processes able to cope with the required levels of flexibility and data size, and (iii) workflow management systems that allow automatic and extensible processing of complex analysis workflows, in particular on high performance computers.

INCF Workshop on Multiscale Data Integration for Neuroinformatics
Year of publication : 2012

Aim: Share techniques and experiences from research groups working on whole brain data integration and modeling in different species. This includes issues including metadata annotation, standard vocabularies and ontologies, reference coordinate spaces and methods for performing analysis and data integration of large multiscale datasets. The outcome will help set the agenda for key developments in required standards and technologies to facilitate the integration of data in the fly, rodent and human brains.

Place: Stockholm, Sweden

1st INCF Workshop on Validation of Data-Analysis Methods
Year of publication : 2012

Objective: Using tested and proven methods and algorithms for data analysis is an essential prerequisite for reproducible research. For many types of data analysis in neuroscience, however, there are no established measures or test data for quality assessment and comparison of methods. In this two-day workshop, we investigated the needs for concerted efforts to address validation of other analysis methods for different types of data. 

Place: Stockholm, Sweden

INCF Canadian Neuroinformatics Workshop - A satellite Symposium of the CAN 2012 Meeting
Year of publication : 2012

Objective: build the Canada neuroinformatics community, enabling Canadian scientists from diverse neuroinformatics-related fields to gather, exchange knowledge and discuss whether there was community desire for Canada to join the INCF.

Place: Vancuver, Canada

2nd and 3rd INCF Workshops on Needs for Training in Neuroinformatics: Extended and Short Course Provision
Year of publication : 2009

Theme: What are the issues arising when providing extended and short courses in neuroinformatics? How could the INCF facilitate training? In Workshop 2, delegates concentrated on developing the list of subject areas where neuroinformatics training is needed. In Workshop 3, there was discussion on both the stumbling blocks encountered when designing and running short courses and what new short courses are required. Ways in which INCF can be involved were identified, and specific recommendations on the coordination of existing material, validation of courses and funding of short training workshops were colllected and listed in this report.
