International Neuroinformatics Coordinating Facility

The 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.

Code samples from the 2 projects supported in 2011 are available from the Google Code project area.


  • Continuous integration, packaging and a compile farm: NEST-based case study I would like to create a CI infrastructure and set it up to provide complete build services for one particular neuroinformatics project (NEST). Implementation would be such that further projects can be added by writing appropriate glue code, maintenance of the build slaves is automated, self-documenting and reproducible. A research question would be whether a compile farm can be provided using the same configuration of slaves (1) and if NEST can be built in parallel (2).
  • Web Data Analysis Tool An application that allows scientists to cleanly represent views of their data in a pure python class and a javascript library to display and alter plots of this data with support for zoom/pan, multiple time-series plotting and ajax loading of new data.
