The 2nd Carnegie Mellon University Open Science Symposium

Thursday, November 7, 2019
Mellon Institute Library

We are excited to invite all students, data users, and researchers to join us at the second CMU Open Science Symposium, taking place at the Mellon Institute of Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. The symposium will build awareness and support for the adoption of open research practices, and encourage innovative ideas about data sharing in the life sciences and related disciplines.

The full day program will feature talks from guest speakers including researchers, tool developers and publishers, panel discussions, an interactive session with poster and demos on research using open methods, and a networking reception.

This dynamic and interactive symposium will accelerate interdisciplinary collaborations among Carnegie Mellon, University of Pittsburgh, and other institutions. We look forward to you joining us at this fun, stimulating, and rewarding event!

Video and slides from presentations given at the first Open Science Symposium in October 2018 are openly available on the Open Science Framework here.
