lkfitz's bookmarks 2017-12-06
"This workshop will bring together a diverse group of scientists committed to open-source science. Together, we will review the lessons learnt from various pioneering initiatives, such as the Polymath project and Data for Democracy. We will discuss the opportunity for a new tool, similar to the software development platform GitHub, which would enable online collaborative science. We will consider the challenges associated with the adoption of such a tool by our peers and discuss ways to overcome them. Finally, we will sketch a roadmap for the actual development of that tool."
