Hi everyone,

I am just forwarding this message that might be of interest for the 
vision community.



An initiative from the scientific community to put all available 
resources at the service of the fight against COVID-19.

This platform has two sides:

- For scientists at all levels of their career, even if they work in 
fields completely unrelated to COVID-19: They simply need to fill a 
form, so that we can be in contact if we need their help. If we need it, 
it can be as simple as answering a question related to their discipline, 
but there are also many other tasks that we may request. There is no 
commitment at this point, and it takes 5 minutes to sign up.

- For researchers who are already working on COVID-19: They can ask us 
to perform any task for them, for free. These tasks can include labor 
intensive tasks (annotating data, analyzing images manually, etc.), 
answering questions (from simple questions about a protocol, for 
example, to general research questions), or setting up new techniques 
for them. Everything is coordinated by scientists highly skilled in the 
field of interest, so the input we need from them will be kept to a minimum.

All the best, and stay safe,

Vincent de Gardelle
