fMRI Workshop: Data organization and processing for neuroimaging with BIDS and BIDS Apps (October 1, 2021, 1pm-3pm ONLINE)

Workshop Overview:

Over the past decade, the neuroimaging field has produced (and continues to produce) incredible amounts of data. As a result, the scientific community has developed a diverse set of tools to facilitate the FAIRness of these data. This workshop will introduce the Brain Imaging Data Structure (BIDS) and BIDS Apps as well as a few other tools. This workshop is being offered by the Rotman Research Training Center via Zoom. 

Workshop Objectives:

The workshop is designed to help attendees:

  • Understand how MRI data are organized
  • Learn the benefits of BIDS
  • Convert MRI data to BIDS in some hands-on exercises
  • Run reproducible pipelines that take BIDS data as input (BIDS Apps)
  • Use the tools discussed during the workshop on Rotman Servers, including the GRID, and the SciNet computing cluster

Attendee Requirements:

This workshop assumes that attendees have some familiarity with the different MRI modalities. The workshop will also use both the Unix shell and Python to demonstrate certain objectives. A working knowledge of both may aid in understanding.

No software installation is required prior to this workshop. The workshop will involve demonstrations using Jupyter notebooks that can be accessed at
