International Neuroinformatics Coordinating Facility

Organization devoted to advancing the field of neuroinformatics by developing an international neuroinformatics infrastructure to promote the sharing of data and computing resources and to help develop scalable, portable, and extensible applications that can be used by neuroscience laboratories worldwide. Programs include: Digital Brain Atlasing, Multiscale Modeling, Ontologies of Neural Structures, Standards for Datasharing, and Teaching and Training The overall scope of the new program Standards for Data sharing is to develop generic standards and tools to facilitate the recording, sharing, and reporting of metadata. It is expected that these efforts will greatly improve upon current practices for archiving and sharing neuroscience data. Two Task Forces will initially focus on: * Neuroimaging data and databases of neurological/psychiatric disorders and cognitive function * Electrophysiological data and databases The organization currently includes 14 member countries. The Secretariat offices are located in Stockholm, at Karolinska Institutet and the Royal Institute of Technology. The Governing Board is composed of representatives from the member countries and is the means by which the nodes make collective decisions regarding INCF. The National Nodes are institutions or networks that represent each country's membership. The nodes are established to coordinate neuroinformatics activity within a country and to provide a connection with the Secretariat. Furthermore, they play an active role in formulating and implementing INCF Programs.
