More information about INCF
The International Neuroinformatics Coordinating Facility (INCF) was 
launched in 2005, following a proposal from the Global Science Forum of 
the OECD to establish an international collaborative informatics 
infrastructure for neuroscience, and currently has 16 member countries 
across North America, Europe and Asia. INCF establishes and operates 
scientific programs to develop standards for neuroscience data sharing, 
analysis, modeling and simulation while coordinating an informatics 
infrastructure designed to enable the integration of neuroscience 
knowledge worldwide and catalyze insights into brain function in health 
and disease. Please see www.incf.orgfor more information.

More information about NeuroDevNet
NeuroDevNet, a Canadian Network of Centres of Excellence (NCE), is 
dedicated to helping children overcome neurodevelopmental disorders. 
Network investigators seek to understand the causes of neurological 
deficits, and to transfer this knowledge to health care professionals, 
policy makers, and communities of interest. NeuroDevNet works with its 
partners in academia, the community, not-for-profit sector, industry, 
and government, and across traditional disciplinary boundaries and 
sectors, to ensure generated knowledge is translated into tangible 
diagnostic, preventative, therapeutic, social, economic, and health 
benefits for all. Please see www.neurodevnet.ca
