Science Online – from North Carolina to the British Library
There has been a wealth of post-conference coverage following last month’s Science Online in the Research Triangle, North Carolina. From blog posts, to video, images and tweets, the conversation truly has carried on, even though the event has come to a close.
My slides from Saturday’s technology discussion are now online, as well. The session evolved organically, my slides just a starting point meant to stimulate the discussion on science and its relationship to technology and tools development. Many thanks to all who participated, both in person and through online channels.
To build on the Science Online buzz, I’m pleased to announce that planning for Science Online London (#solo11, @soloconf) is now underway. We’re thrilled to be joining esteemed colleagues Martin Fenner (Hannover Medical School, PLoS Blogs) and Lou Woodley (Nature Network) in planning this year’s event as an organiser and sponsor, which will be held at the British Library on September 2-3, 2011.
We’ll be building on previous years events to further explore science in the digital age – from the way it’s communicated and conducted, to the tools and technology needed, to the social issue of rewards and incentives. Topic areas we hope to add to the mix and/or expand upon include big data, changing paradigms in science communication, open science, infrastructure / cloud computing and even bibliometrics. If you have any ideas or programme suggestions, please feel free to contact either myself or Lou. We’d love to hear from you.
Interested in sponsoring Science Online London? Drop me an email. I’d be happy to send over information on sponsorship opportunities, so we can keep Science Online as accessible as possible.
Don’t forget to mark your calendars — Sept. 2-3, at the British Library. More information to come. We hope you can make it.
