NIDASH Working Group

Mission: to support the widespread publication and use of provenance information of Web documents, data, and resources in neuroimaging. The Working Group will publish W3C-style specifications that define a language for exchanging neuroimaging provenance and derived data information among applications. Facilitate importing the derived data into data management systems and perform semantically meaningful queries across data management systems and functional brain imaging analyses performed with disparate tools.
