This page lists some ways that you can get involved with the BIDS community.
There are many ways to get involved with the BIDS community!
If you're new to the BIDS community and you'd like to learn a bit more, we recommend checking out the BIDS Starter Kit. This has introductory information about the BIDS specification, tools in the BIDS ecosystem, and how you can get involved.
If you'd like to get involved more heavily in helping extend the BIDS specification or develop tools for it, see the BIDS Contributor Guide. It contains more in-depth information for getting involved with the BIDS community.
The BIDS specification can be extended in a backwards compatible way and will evolve over time. These are accomplished with BIDS Extension Proposals (BEPs), which are community-driven processes.
Below is a table of currently-active BEPs. The "Extension label" column provides a direct link to the documentation.
When an extension reaches maturity it is merged into the main body of the specification. Below is a table of BEPs that have been merged in the main body of the specification.
|BEP006||Electroencephalograpgy (EEG)||Cyril Pernet, Stefan Appelhoff, Robert Oostenveld|
|BEP008||Magnetoencephalography (MEG)||Guiomar Niso|
|BEP010||intracranial Electroencephalograpgy (iEEG)||Chris Holdgraf, Dora Hermes|
|BEP011||The structural preprocessing derivatives||Andrew Hoopes|
|BEP012||The functional preprocessing derivatives||Camille Maumet and Chris Markiewicz|
|BEP013||The resting state fMRI derivatives||Steven Giavasis|
|BEP014||The affine transformations and nonlinear field warps||Oscar Esteban|
All of the extension ideas that are not backwards compatible and thus will have to wait for BIDS 2.0 are listed here
