Thanks to all who responded so quickly. A digest of the responses
(anonymized) is attached.
One of the reasons we asked this question is related to another research
project we are working on - digital pathology (DPATH). In this space,
the tool providers output xml-formatted annotations. The annotations,
like the annotations we have used in speech recognition research, are
We currently have a schema that works for both EEG and DPATH and are
developing tools that handle both transparently.
The responses today were overwhelmingly in favor of csv, which I
expected. Therefore, if we go the route of xml, we will provide csv
also. We also will continue to provide tools to make it easy to access
the data no matter what format it is in.
Thanks again for many excellent responses.
