Community Call: Open Project Management 8/10, 11ET

This next week, we’re hosting a community call on issues of open project management in science, and we want you there! For background, the Science Lab community call takes place every other month, highlighting recent developments and work of the community relevant to science and the web. Join us to hear more about current projects, find out how you can get involved, and listen to others (or yourself!) discuss work in and around open research.

Our upcoming community call is this Thursday, August 10th.

The call is open to the public, starts at 11:00 am ET.

Call in details can be found on the call etherpad (where you can also find notes and the agenda). As with our June call, we’ll feature speakers on Air Mozilla, a video live-streaming platform which will be a departure from our typical dial in, and hopefully more accessible!

We have video for the call this month!

For August’s call, we’ll be talking about project management specifically, featuring speakers who build scientific projects and programs that solicit contributors and feedback from a broader open science community than their local lab. We’ll feature some speakers providing updates on their projects post-Global Sprint, and others sharing techniques in project maintenance and sustainable community development. You can look forward to hearing from the following group of speakers across research, industry, and institutional domains:

  • Jo Pauls – developing Open Heart, a data repo + message forum for biomedical research share, Postdoc, Prince Charles Hospital Northside Clinical Unit, Faculty of Medicine
  • Daniela Saderi – developing a “Starter Kit” for preprint journal clubs, Neurosci PhD @Neurosarda, OHSU-SOM
  • Holly Murray – developing immediate + transparent publishing for science @f1000research, F1000 Research
  • Ilyass Tabiai – developing a bi-weekly podcast for open science @Joydisee, Colper Science

We’ll also hear our closing updates from our 2016 Mozilla Fellows for Science, and our 2017 Global Sprint participants, as well as more updates on our 2017 Fellowship awards, our Mini-grants + Mozfest CFPs, and our WOW – Boston! Should be a great call!

The Mozilla Festival Call for Proposals just closed, stay tuned here for updates on accepted sessions!

Have an update, blog post or event you’d like to share relevant to open science? Add it to the etherpad (see ‘Non Verbal Updates’). It’s a great way to share what you’re working on and/or interested in with the community. Don’t be shy. Have a look at last month’s notes on trust in open science for an idea of what others contributed to the conversation.
