Community Call Feb. 16, 11ET

This week, we’re hosting an artful community call on the intersection of Art and 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, February 16th. The call is open to the public and will start at 11:00 am ET. Call in details can be found on the call etherpad (where you can also find notes and the agenda) and on the wiki. (If you have trouble with the toll-free number, try one of the numbers at the bottom of this post.)

This month, we’ll be talking about art, featuring people who build scientific projects in collaboration with or as artists, using visual tools to communicate and share scientific concepts. We’ll hear from the following set list of impressive contributors to art-science communities:

  • Paul Villoutreix – sharing open visualizations of embryonic development @paulvilloutreix, Center for Data Arts
  • Tega Brain – Processing and p5.js for science @tegabrain, Data & Society + 2016 Processing Foundation Fellow
  • Titus Wormer – text training through mellifluous visualization @wooorm, University of Applied Sciences Amsterdam
  • Bill Morris – abstract landscapes from satellite data @vtcraghead, Geosprocket
  • Ian Webster – creating stellar visuals with extra-terrestrial spatial data @iwebst, Zenysis
  • Michael Kosowsky – elevation panoramas for multitudes of mountainscapes @heywhatsthat, Hey What’s That

We’ll also hear our closing updates from our 2016 Mozilla Fellows for Science! Should be a great call!

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 ethics in open science for an idea of what others contributed to the conversation.

Mark your calendars, tune in and help us spread the word – everyone is welcome. For call-in details and links to the etherpad, visit our wiki page. We hope you’ll join us!

Note: Having trouble dialing in? Try one of these numbers. (Note that they are toll calls and you’ll be charged by your telephone company if the number is long-distance.)
