Open Science Symposium Workshops

We are excited to invite all researchers and data users and managers in the life sciences to join us at the inaugural Carnegie Mellon Open Science Symposium, taking place at the Mellon Institute on the CMU Campus in Pittsburgh, Oct 18-19, 2018.

The symposium will build awareness, support and innovative ideas for the adoption of open research tools, workflows, and data sharing, and accelerate interdisciplinary collaborations among life science researchers at Carnegie Mellon, University of Pittsburgh, and other institutions. At the symposium, researchers, funding agencies, publishers, and data service providers will share success stories, discuss challenges and solutions in open research and data sharing, and offer hands-on workshops and demos to help researchers get started with reliable open science tools.

October 18: The atmosphere of the symposium day on October 18 will be interactive and dynamic. In addition to engaging in conversations during panel discussions, coffee breaks and reception, participants will have the opportunity to directly connect with other participants in a “Scientific Speed Dating” event.

October 19: A series of hands on workshops will offer training to implement open science tools in your research. The event at lunch on Oct 19 will be a Kilthub and figshare deposit-athon in the Mellon Institue Library.

Registration now open on the event website, where more programming information can also be found:

This event is supported by the Mellon College of Science through a generous grant from the DSF Charitable foundation. The organizers are Melanie Gainey, Huajin Wang, and Ana Van Gulick, faculty in the CMU Libraries, and Eric Yttri, faculty in Biological Sciences.
