Community outreach call coming up – 6 June, all welcome!

Update: If you missed the call, the recording is available on YouTube

InterMine runs quarterly Community Outreach calls, targeted to interest people in the overlap between life sciences, open source, and open science, with a few InterMine specific updates sprinkled in as well. Most times we host one or two guest speakers who work in scientific outreach or have done an interesting InterMine-related project we’d like to spotlight. We aim to welcome anyone interested in community outreach and generally try to avoid overly techie themes.

The next outreach call coming up on June 6th, 5PM UK time, with two exciting guest speakers, plus we’ll briefly mention the six Google Summer of Code students working with us over the next few months. 

Please help to spread the word by sharing with colleagues and friends – the more the merrier!

Speakers:

  • Malvika Sharan is a computational biologist and a community outreach coordinator for EMBL Bio-IT, which fosters a community of bioinformaticians. She will be talking about inconclusiveness in Open Science Communities using examples from her work at EMBL and her involvement in The Carpentries, SSI, and Mozilla.
  • Emmy Tsang: I’m the new Innovation Community Manager at eLife and am now running the eLife Innovation Initiative. I’m going to talk about the #eLifeSprint– our effort to drive and support collaborations in developing open-source software for open science, and the latest developments of Reproducible Document Stack project, which include a roadmap towards sharing reproducible research.

Agenda and joining details: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1VhfFbOwx95UZP-sRDVib8HNGPCXCfnpDVGh8VAbeI0c/edit – we’ll be using Zoom for this call, rather than GotoMeeting.

When: 6 June, 2019 at 17:00 UK time / or in your timezone: http://arewemeetingyet.com/London/2019-06-06/17:00/InterMine%20Community%20Outreach%20Meeting
