Our biggest GSoC yet - 40 INCF community projects have been approved for GSoC 2022!24 May 2022
Over the years, the GSoC program has become a very valuable and impactful initiative for our community. Many core INCF community tools have been improved, extended, and made more interoperable as a result of GSoC (including LORIS, The Virtual Brain, Open Source Brain, the Brian simulator and the Active Segmentation plugin for ImageJ - see more here).
For 2022, tool developers in the INCF community proposed 51 possible projects that they would be willing to mentor, from a range of different neuroscience fields. Approved participating projects include Disimpy, the BIDS community, GeNN, Analysim, EEG-Notebooks, The Virtual Brain, Open Source Brain, HNN-core, Pydra, NBDT journal, LORIS, DevoWorm and the Global Brain Consortium.
All projects can be seen on our GSoC organization profile page.
Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is a global program focused on bringing new developers into open source software development. INCF has participated as a GSoC mentoring organization since 2011, identifying and recruiting mentors from our community who volunteer to mentor one or more GSoC contributors in open source software development over the summer. INCF serves as an umbrella organization, requesting and reviewing project ideas from community projects and pairing new contributors with mentors. GSoC contributors are in turn supported by a stipend from Google.
