Call for workshops at the 2013 Neuroinformatics Congress

Neuroinformatics 2013 will feature three workshops which will be selected from submitted proposals.

Data sharing workshop

On December 14th, 2012, NeuroInformatics.NL hosts a workshop on Data sharing.
This workshop presents seven opinions on data sharing, to address these key issues:

  • Will inclusion of other institutes' data boost your research?
  • What about loosing your competitive edge?
  • What about patient privacy?
  • What about publications and citations?
  • What about people deriving wrong claims from your data?
  • Should public money only be spent on Open Access projects?
  • Are scientific claims based on inaccessible data acceptable for publication?
  • How to share massive amounts of data?
