Subject: Fwd: INVITATION: CENDI-NFAIS Workshop on "Open Science: Driving
Forces and Practical Realities"


The shutdown is over in Washington and we in our final days of registration
for this interesting workshop.     It's really a great agenda on a very
strategic topic at a great price for the full day.  Where is all of this
openness going??

A One-Day Workshop *Co-sponsored by CENDI and NFAIS*

*Hosted by FEDLINK at the Library of Congress


The Mumford Room, Library of Congress, 101 Independence Avenue, SE,
 Washington, DC 20540
Tuesday, November 12, 2013  *  9:00 am - 4:30 pm  *


 This one-day workshop is a must for anyone involved in managing the flow
of scientific and scholarly communication. The Open Science movement has
the potential to dramatically change that flow* *as well as the roles of
all involved *if* the key emerging issues can be resolved. Open government,
open data, and open access are all necessary but insufficient movements to
make open science a reality. This workshop will explore the technical,
financial, political, and social/cultural forces that are driving the
movement; the key issues that may impact *your* organization - issues such
as creator/author rights, attribution, information sharing and re-use,
machine access and interoperability, preservation of the record of science,
etc.; and the policies and tools that are being created to make open
science a reality.  Register *now* to apply funds from the current fiscal
year.  In any case, seating is limited so register early!

* *


John King, William Warner Bishop Professor of Information, University of
Michigan, will open the day with an overview of the Open Science movement,
why it started, how far it has come, and the practical issues that must be
resolved to make it a reality. This will be followed by a session on the
policies behind open science, which will include both government and
researcher perspectives, and will explore the challenges any policy must
address in order to catalyze a wholesale shift toward more open science at
the community level. Speakers will come from the White House Science
Office, Penn State, and Stanford University.

After lunch (which will be provided), speakers from the academic and
publishing communities (Drexel University, Harvard University, and
Elsevier), will discuss some of the tools that have been created to support
collaborative research, tools such as open notebooks, Authorea (manuscript
creation software), and Mendeley.   In addition, there will be a case-study
panel that will highlight three open science initiatives – the Materials
Genome project, Galaxy Zoo, and Mapping the Human Brain.  The speakers will
discuss why the projects were started and the challenges and practical
issues that have had to be addressed to bring them to fruition.

 The day will close with a futuristic assessment of how the open science
movement may evolve and what roadblocks must be overcome for its ultimate
success presented by Dr. Susan K. Gregurick, Director of the Division of
Biomedical Technology, Bioinformatics, and Computational Biology at the
National Institutes of Health.

 Speakers have been chosen for their expertise in the subject matter to be
addressed -- the day will be full of interesting presentations and

 *Plan on joining us for an informational and thought-provoking day.*
