Interested in data platforms, open science, visualization, or neuroscience studies? Projects can be proposed to match the applicant’s interests, background and strengths, and developed with input from our team. Some examples from past INCF Google Summer of Code projects include: new module development, automated testing, API development.
Application: Steps to apply
- Follow the instructions on the Google Summer of Code website to start your application:
Org name: INCF
Project proposal name: must include “LORIS”
- Share your CV and the GoogleDoc link you begin through your online application - send these by email to Lead Mentor @crogers Christine Rogers, with any questions you may have, for feedback.
- Ensure you complete your application on the Google website on time - late applications are not accepted.
Important Tips for your application:
- Keep the project description and deliverables very general. Your focus should be on updating and contributing to the LORIS codebase, without committing to specific features.
- Pace your deliverables and timelines based on the example from this past project: Alexandra Livadas | Computer Engineering Undergraduate Student, McGill University
About LORIS :
LORIS (website: Loris.ca | github.com/aces/loris) is an open-source database for neuroscience research projects and Open Science initiatives, used by researchers in 22 countries. LORIS’ open-stack web platform is used by scientists to collect and curate, analyze and share data - including brain scans, genetic data, psychological tests, wearables, and more. 3D visualization and advanced data tools provide a dynamic workflow environment for complex neuroinformatics research.
LORIS currently hosts datasets such as the UK Biobank and and the BigBrain 3D Atlas (bigbrain.loris.ca) - a high-resolution model of the human brain. Visit LORIS.ca or github.com/aces/loris for more information - Try LORIS at Demo.loris.ca
Working with LORIS :
LORIS is made by a diverse team of 20 developers currently working remotely and based at the McGill Centre for Integrative Neuroscience at McGill University in Montreal, Canada. We especially encourage those with background or interest in neuroscience, medicine or psychology research, bioinformatics, or image/signal processing to apply.
