Welcome to the INCF National Node of France

1st French Neuroinformatics workshop, 17th June 2014, Paris.

Neuroinformatics 2014, Leiden, August 25-27

Neuroinformatics combines neuroscience and informatics research to develop and apply advanced tools and approaches essential for a major advancement in understanding the structure and function of the brain.

The International Neuroinformatics Coordinating Facility (INCF) is a professional organization devoted to advancing the field of neuroinformatics. One of its aims is to develop an international neuroinformatics infrastructure, which promotes the sharing of data and computing resources to the international research community. A larger objective of the INCF is to help develop scalable, portable, and extensible applications that can be used by neuroscience laboratories worldwide.

The principal objective of the French National Node of the INCF is to facilitate interactions between neuroinformatics researchers within France, and to act as a link between global INCF activities and local scientists, in collaboration with other actors working in neuroinformatics and computational neuroscience, such as the NeuroComp organization, the Société des Neurosciences, the JIRFNI neuroimaging training consortium, etc.

A number of more specific activities are planned, including:

The French National Node operates under the authority of the French National Alliance for Life and Health Sciences (ITMO Neurosciences), and is based at UNIC, on the CNRS Life-Sciences Campus of Gif-sur-Yvette.
