Screening for studies in systematic reviews, scoping reviews, and other knowledge syntheses: strategies for improvement – July 9, 2020

July 9 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 3:45 pm

Have you ever screened for studies in a systematic review, a scoping review, or other knowledge synthesis study? Did you find it challenging? Would you like to learn strategies to: • Improve your screening by reducing the number of screening conflicts, and the time spent resolving them? • Increase screening accuracy among your team? Workshop objectives: • Describe and understand the importance of inclusion and exclusion criteria. • Define, and illustrate what clear and well-defined inclusion and exclusion criteria looks like. • Identify issues with the study screening process. • Discuss strategies to reduce study screening conflicts, and increase study screening accuracy for the first level of screening (title and abstract), and second level of screening (full text). This workshop will NOT cover: • Methods for different review types • How to search for…

Lecture Neuroimaging Analysis at Scale

July 14 2020 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am
Venue: , , ,

Introduction to the neuroimaging data and best practices for the analysis of neuroimaging data using High Performance Clusters (HPC). We will introduce types of neuroimaging scanning modalities with instructions for how to organize these data using the Brain Imaging Data Structure (BIDS). We will then introduce Singularity container software (BIDS-apps) for the preprocessing of neuroimaging data (including mriqc and fmriprep) and demonstrate how to run them on the HPC. We will discuss general information about running Singularity containerized software on the HPC and how to construct custom containers for your own analysis using NeuroDocker.
