>> OPEN SCIENCE SUMMIT 2011: OPENING THE DOOR TO INNOVATION.
>> Historic Open Science Alliance to Launch at Summit, Oct 22-23 at Computer History Museum MOUNTAIN
VIEW, CA August 23, 2011
>> Early registration special ends 23rd September 2011 at 8:00pm PDT. Student discounts and scholarships
are available at
>> On October 22-23, an expected 450 people will gather at Mountain View’s Computer History Museum,
launching an initiative to make science more efﬁcient, collaborative and productive.
>> Whether by sharing research data, publishing work to be freely accessible, providing
community access to lab space or collaborating across industry, academia & society, people across the
world are improving science by opening up. Given the magnitude of our world’s unmet
challenges, founder Joseph Jackson says “we must grasp this opportunity to embrace open
science.” The advent of social networking among scientists, increased public scrutiny and a
revolution in computing speed have all had a hand in creating this historic moment.
>> “Open science represents a different kind of science. With the advent of massive computational
power, there is a new way to do science and that often goes hand and hand with openness - and if you go with
the traditional model, you’re ossiﬁed.”
>> - Tomas Goetz, Wired.
>> The Open Science Summit is the ﬁrst event of its kind, uniting open science advocates of
all disciplines: everyone from citizen scientists to academic researchers and
multinational corporations. For all their differences, these groups share one ambition: to make
scientiﬁc research more public, sharable and scalable. Last year’s inaugural event saw over 300
attendees and nationwide media impact. This year, the Open Science Summit proves that Open Science is
global and here to stay through the launch of the Open Science Alliance, an ofﬁcial coalition of
these many complementary movements. The Alliance will launch a developer’s challenge this
Spring, incentivizing students to develop solutions that beneﬁt open science, as well as a number of
joint publications and advocacy campaigns.
>> This year, open science has shown promise in crowd-sourcing clinical trials,
determining interactions between genome-based and microbe-driven illnesses and even ﬁnding lost
family members. This year’s Open Science Summit features a medical research track, exploring
2010-11 innovations and a pitch session where startups will present their contributions to open
science collaboration. Conﬁrmed speakers include recently-published Misha Angrist from Duke,
Rade Drmanac, founder of Complete Genomics and Victoria Stodden, statistics professor at Columbia.
>> “Openness by far and away will win out if we actually measure people by their true
contribution,” says Professor Jonathan Eisen. With that in mind, the Summit has a track dedicated
toward new ideas on giving researchers due credit - and due reward - in an open science system.
Conﬁrmed speakers for this track include James Love of Knowledge Ecology International and
David Thomson of UCSF. The summit also provides two more tracks: one dedicated to group problem-
>> solving to address barriers to open science, and the other dedicated to youth education and advocacy
around opening up. Visit http://opensciencesummit.com for more details.
