    I’ve been on the periphery of the planning of this open science event, and I think it’s shaping up into a really wonderful day. Please consider attending and/or passing the announcement on to people you think might be interested:

    OpenSciNY is a free, one-day conference on the impact of publicly accessible scientific tools & resources, open access publishing in the sciences, and open data/notebook efforts. The event is geared toward science faculty, students, and librarians.

    Date/Time: Friday, May 14, 2010, from 9:30am-6pm

    Location: New York University’s Bobst Library (next to Washington Square Park)

    Confirmed speakers include Jean-Claude Bradley (Associate Professor of Chemistry at Drexel University) and Heather Joseph (Executive Director of the Scholarly Publishing & Academic Resources Coalition).

    Lunch for the conference has been kindly sponsored by the Royal Society of Chemistry.
