Hi ESIP members,

I wanted to bring to your attention the Mozilla Science Global Sprint
happening June 4-5.  The Mozilla Science Lab is an initiative of the
Mozilla Foundation that supports projects that promote openness and
collaboration in research via the web - very ESIP! Their annual Global
Sprint is a two-day event to convene scientists, researchers, educators,
publishers and students around the world to work on a huge list of
interesting projects. You can see the list of projects here
<http://www.mozillascience.org/global-sprint-2015> - below are a few the
ESIP community could really add some expertise to! :

IQuOD <https://www.mozillascience.org/projects/autoqc>: working to unify
the open data of ocean observation under one set of validation tests.
Diversibee <https://www.mozillascience.org/projects/diversibee>: a browser
game designed to increase the awareness of long-term effects of land use on
agricultural profitability.
Riffyn <https://www.mozillascience.org/projects/resourceminer>: a natural
language processing toolkit for extracting controlled vocabularies
(ontologies) of research resources used in the scientific literature, and
organizing them into an associative knowledge graph.
Code as a Research Object <https://www.mozillascience.org/projects/codemeta>:
exploring integrating software into the scholarly workflow. Collaboration
withGitHub, figshare and Zenodo.
Contributorship Badges
<https://www.mozillascience.org/projects/contributorship-badges>: exploring
the use of digital badges for crediting contributors to scholarly papers
for their work.
Geotag-X <https://cernsprints.etherpad.mozilla.org/6>: is a project to
explore crowdsourcing data extraction from large amounts of photos, taken
in a region after a natural disaster. It's not unimaginable that the same
framework could be used to analyze environmental / geographic data in
non-disaster scenarios.
Open Data Lessons on Environmental Data
<https://github.com/BillMills/BCenviroLessons>: is a project to build
lessons on R that will be relevant and interesting to disciplines that
might use environmental data.

There are local nodes (in-person attendance option) for this event around
the globe. Absolutely *everyone* is welcome to join any one of these, no
experience necessary! In addition to coding projects, there will be
discussions around education, publishing and policy.  ESIP members can join
any 'local' node OR join as a virtual participant!

If you're thinking of attending virtually, please let me know by adding
your name & contact info to the Participants list below our site name (*Virtual
- ESIP)*

 here: https://etherpad.mozilla.org/sciencelab-2015globalsprint.  Also, if
you have any questions about this event, feel free to add them there as
well; if you'd like to talk to participants around the world,  tweet at
#mozsprint and @MozillaScience. I hope you'll join us for the Sprint!
