The Neurodata Without Borders (NWB) project has just started. The project
goal is to build a common data format for neurophysiology data from Allen
Brain Institute, Janelia Farm and two labs from NYU and Caltech. Although
focusing on a limited set of use cases, the project also aims to develop
products that will serve the broader community.
At this point we would like to solicit community input about
ideas/approaches for designing a generalizable neurophysiology data format.
If you are interested in contributing to this project, please review the
project description at:
and fill out the questionnaire:
On the basis of the questionnaire responses and ensuing communication, we
will organize the first hackathon meeting of the project, to be held November
20 – 22, 2014 (just after SfN) at Janelia Farm, in Ashburn, Virginia. At
this hackathon we will discuss in detail the requirements for a common
format based on the project use cases and also discuss, compare and
evaluate alternative techniques for implementing the common format.
More information about the project is available in a recent press release:
Please forward this email to anyone you know with relevant expertise who
may be interested in contributing to this project.
