|BIDS meeting with DICOM|
|Imaging Neuroscience Response regarding BIDS ‘badge’||
(see email from Steve Smith)
The best thing would be for BIDS (committee etc) to encourage authors to be very clear and explicit (eg in Methods text) when BIDS has been used, just as with the many other important aspects of the methodology used in a given paper. At Imaging Neuroscience we would have no problem at all in authors being clear about their use of BIDS. We couldn't have a "front page badge" because that would risk an overwhelming number of similar requests, but I think the important thing is to explicitly mention use of BIDS in the main text.

|BIDS Derivatives Meeting in Copenhagen|
Present: Guiomar Niso, Robert Oostenveld, Kim Ray, Yaroslav Halchenko, Cyril Pernet, Taylor Salo
DICOM working group 16 meeting:
DICOM is similar to BIDS BEPS where it is organized in working groups.
DICOMworking group 16 works with MRI - they are a good point of contact.
See slides in the agenda for information Yaroslav presented
They recommended to contact working group 6 which may be a more general group for additional meta-data fields
They seem receptive but they are a large working group
contact phillips rep to identify what information is missing from DICOMS?
Collect an initiative to collect sample dicoms (phantoms) to identify what meta-data is needed for BIDS that is not currently provided
Who should we contact (DICOM working group, manufacturer?) to address deficient information in DICOMS? - DICOM working groups dont use Github, they need email requests.
The method of reporting the findings from the pilot study should be reusable and accessible (i.e. not an email, create an issue in BIDS so that it can be referred to later).
- We could create a github issue for each email to DICOM or other recipients
Imaging Neuroscience Response from Steve Smith
Steve says that the BIDS compliance is up the the reviewers
- So then should we educate the reviewers on how to ensure that a brain dataset is BIDS compliant?
Can we respond with a solution to help the reviewers
Have authors provide a certificate of BIDS compliance from a BIDS validator
Provide instructions for the average Imaging Neuroscience reviewer
Develop instructions for reviewers as a starting point? (also include on the BIDS website)
BIDS Derivatives Meeting in Copenhagen
Is there a virtual option?
Main few talks will be available.
OHBM BIDS Town Hall
We could have used one of the times that was not being utilized by the OS-SIG. Kimberly Ray will follow up on this with BIDS maintainers and OS-SIG schedule. RIght now we are potentially taking a space that others could have used to discuss research/science.
