Dave Keator (NIDM) joining to give an update on NIDM-terms

NIDM terms:

BIDS Steering Group elections in the Fall

  • Switch chair?

  • Discuss process

KW will be rotated out - will be invited back to give advice on specific topics (e.g. community development)

From the governing structure:

Initially, Steering Group members will be elected for staggered terms of 2/3/4 years, to allow continuity and overlap across years. This will ensure institutional knowledge is preserved within the BIDS Steering Group. In the initial BIDS Steering Group, there will be at least one non-MRI modality represented. ->

One person drops after 1 year, 2 more after 2 and 2 more after 4.
(ongoing) BIDS usage survey

BEP guidelines - recommend against student leading BEP if it is a requirement for graduation

-> move to next meeting, should maybe be added to governance?
