For anyone who is interested I thought it might be helpful to say where I am going to be at meetings and conferences over the next few months. If anyone is going then drop me a line and we can meet up. Most of these are looking like interesting meetings so I recommend going to them if they are in your area (and in your area if you see what I mean)

June 26 (yes this week) – Workshop on ‘Data sharing in the biosciences’ at the National E-science centre in Edinburgh. I think this is now full.

July 16/17 – Science Commons meeting ‘Collaborating for the future of open science‘ – a satellite session of EuroScience Open Forum in Barcelona. Many people will be there for what will be the first in a series of discussions about how Open Science could (and should) work.

July 22/23/24 – Institutional Web Managers WorkshopAberdeen. I’m kicking off the conference so no pressure there

August 1 – BarCamb – Cambridge – Not sure about this one. There are a lot of meetings in this list and I need to get some work done but I would like to go if I can fit it in!

August 6/7 – BioBarCamp – The Institute for the Future – Unconference leading up to SciFoo pushed forward largely through the efforts of Attila Csordas

August 8/9/10 – SciFoo – GooglePlex, Woohoo!

August 11 – Open Science Workshop at Stanford – open invitation and flexible program at the moment, more details on this later

August 30 – Science Blogging 2008, LondonRoyal Institution, London

August 31/Sept 1 – Open Science Workshop at Southampton – more on this in the follow on post

September 8-12 – Science in the 21st Century – Perimeter Institute, Waterloo – again a really interesting programme with me bringing up the tail

December 1/2/3 – International Digital Curation Conference – ‘Radical Sharing: Transforming Science?’ – Edinburgh

January 5-9 – Open Science Workshop at Pacific Symposium on Biocomputing – Kona, Hawaii

  • What a good idea. I will do the same shortly and look forward to meeting you in person in London in August.

    You should use Dopplr… very useful for serendipitous meetings!

  • But does the right cross section of non-technical but geekminded Open Access aware policy mongers use Dopplr? And does anyone actually look at the comments here any more or is everyone on Friendfeed? And for that matter why are all my comment notifications being flagged as spam by Outlook?
