Neuroimagers workshop: BIDS & the TIER protocol


Neuroimagers workshop: BIDS & the TIER protocol 

Presenter: Elizabeth DuPre

Time: April 26, 12-1pm, with optional lab time 1-2pm.

Venue: Grandpré Communications Centre


Sharing data within and across labs is a known challenge, with different researchers adopting unique data and code conventions. Emerging standards for project organization help to address this need, facilitating collaboration and improving the re-usability of collected data. In this workshop, I'll review several principles of best-practice project organization in neuroscience, including the use of the Brain Imaging Data Structure (BIDS). Researchers will leave with resources for organizing their projects including tools for converting their own data into BIDS and querying BIDS data sets. We will also briefly introduce some of the tools and applications in the BIDS ecosystem, providing powerful evidence for the benefits of adopting project organization standards.

Neuroimagers training series

To address researchers' ongoing need to work with neuroimaging formats, data pipelines, metadata standards, and other technical competencies, a new training series is being launched. Called simply Neuroimagers, the series will host hands-on workshops in the Grandpré Communications Centre. In Summer 2019, a web-based learning system will be launched offering video transcriptions and others trainings -both internally produced and curated from other centers- so learners can access training on-demand. This project is a collaboration between MCIN, the BIC, and the Ludmer Center, under the direction of Dr. Jean-Baptiste Poline. We are always looking for teachers of technical content, and volunteers to join the organising committee; if interested, please contact ted.strauss [at] (subject: Neuroimagers%20training%20series) .
