October 18-19, 2018
We are excited to invite all students, data users, and researchers to join us at the first CMU Open Science Symposium, taking place at the Mellon Institute of Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. The symposium will build awareness and support for the adoption of open research practices, and encourage innovative ideas about data sharing in the life sciences and related disciplines.
At the symposium, researchers, 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.
This dynamic and interactive symposium will accelerate interdisciplinary collaborations among Carnegie Mellon, University of Pittsburgh, and other institutions. In addition to engaging in conversations during panel discussions, coffee breaks, and the reception, participants will have the opportunity to directly connect with each other in a “Scientific Speed Dating” event.
We look forward for you to join us at this fun, stimulating, and rewarding 2-day event!
Registration deadline: October 12, 2018.
Register soon to secure your spot at the symposium and workshops!
