Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is a global program focused on bringing more student developers into open source software development. Since 2011, the INCF network has served as a mentoring organization that pairs students with developers to work on 3-month programming projects.
Training and education of early career “neuroinformaticians” is a major focus for the INCF, and it’s also an area prioritized by many IAC members, including MathWorks. Towards this goal, Mathworks and INCF have partnered to establish a fellowship program that engages current or recently graduated students as trainees to work on MATLAB neuroscience toolboxes.
The Assembly is the annual gathering of the INCF network and serves as
its major outreach outlet for the network. The Assembly provides a forum in which the neuroscience community can learn about the latest
advancements in neuroinformatics, attend tutorials on the latest tools, methods, and neuroinformatics approaches, and interact with tool developers and infrastructure providers.
TrainingSpace (TS) is an online hub that makes multimedia educational content from courses, conference lectures, and laboratory exercises from some of the world’s leading neuroscience institutes and societies more accessible to the global neuroscience community. TS provides users with study tracks for self-guided study, tutorials on tools and open science resources for neuroscience research, a Q&A forum, and
access to publicly available datasets as well as links to
