Shared Near Infrared Spectroscopy Format (SNIRF) is designed by the community in an effort to facilitate sharing and analysis of NIRS data.

Finally, we have launched a SNIRF list server. The relevant addresses are here:

We are making a decision as to whether or not use GitHub, NITRC, or some other resource to facilitate the ongoing evolution of SNIRF. We welcome input on what is the best way to handle this. We had an old forum for discussing the finalization of this specification at NITRC here.
