Welcome to the spring newsletter!

As the snow begins to thaw in Stockholm, the Secretariat is preparing for spring-summer events. The INCF spring Nodes workshop will be hosted by the Polish Node in Warsaw April 16-17. The workshop comprises a full day scientific program with contributions from across all Nodes, and a Nodes strategic session. Thanks to the Polish Node for hosting what promises to be a lively and interesting event!

We were delighted that INCF was accepted again this year as a mentoring organization for the Google Summer of Code program; our community has submitted 27 project proposals, a record number!

Look out for INCF’s booth and co-sponsored hackathon at OHBM in June. We look forward to hosting the annual Neuroinformatics Congress in Cairns, Australia in August. This tropical environment will be a wonderful setting for international scientific interactions of the highest calibre. Neuroinformatics 2015 is a satellite meeting of the International Society for Neurochemistry’s meeting, co- located with meetings of the Australasian Neuroscience Society and Asian-Pacific Society for Neurochemistry.

INCF Nodes Workshop in Warsaw, April 16-17

The INCF Nodes Workshop, held each spring, is the main event bringing representatives from each Node country together to present their activities, begin and continue collaborations, and inspire the future directions of INCF. The next workshop will spotlight Polish neuroinformatics research in areas from molecular neuroscience to brain-computer interfaces and supercomputing. It will be held at the Nencki Institute of Experimental Biology of the Polish Academy of Sciences, in Warsaw, and is open to the wider scientific community. Registration is free. Please register latest March 16.
Save the date! INCF is sponsoring the 3rd Annual OHBM Hackathon, which will take place at the Hawaii Convention Center on Oahu, June 12-14, just before the main conference. The first two days will focus on collaborative and open neuroscience projects in data analysis and methods development, and the third and final day of the event will feature a free morning course on “Brain Hacking 101” where participants will be introduced to brain imaging as a data science. Registration will open soon. Project ideas can be submitted to
