A FREE one-day event for enthusiasts of open research from across disciplines to connect, learn, share, and hack.
Join researchers from BU, MIT, and other local institutions for networking, skill-shares, hacking, and lightning talks. We'll hear from local presenters and those live-streamed from MozFest, Mozilla's annual global festival of the Internet held concurrently in London, England.
Welcome! We hope you'll join us at this open research community event. The morning program of lightning talks includes presentations on projects such as:
TidalFluxes.jl, a Julia package to study the transport of material in salt marshes. Julia is a high-level, high-performance dynamic programming language for numerical computing. This project welcomes Julia developers or the Julia-curious, or anyone interested in coding libraries for time-series analysis.
BosLab, a community DIY Bio lab. Built by its community, for its community BosLab provides a safe and inclusive lab space to anyone who wants to explore biotechnology. Anyone, from newcomers to experienced biohackers, is welcome at BosLab.
GIBBON (The Geometry and Image-Based Bioengineering add-On), an open-source MATLAB toolbox for image and geometry visualization and processing, interfaced with free open source software such as TetGen, for robust tetrahedral meshing, and FEBio for finite element analysis. It's highly flexible image-based modelling environment and enables advanced inverse finite element analysis.
**TagTeam, an open research tool developed by the Harvard Open Access Project at the Berkman Klein Center.
Stick around for afternoon hacking sessions, demos and skill-sharing on topics such as GitHub, GitHub Pages, Pre-Print Servers, or Open Data!
Lunch will be provided. Please join us! All are welcome. If you'd like to propose a talk or session, contact organizer Tom Hohenstein at email@example.com.
