About Barcamp Science 2.0

The Social Web exerts increasing influence on the daily routines of researchers and offers new opportunities for networking and interdisciplinary collaboration. This includes free access to and exchange of findings and research results. To achieve this opening up of science, obstacles must be removed and barriers overcome. This is reflected in the motto of the Barcamp Science 2.0 “Opening up Science, crossing borders”. The Barcamp will take place on 24 March 2015 in Hamburg, on the eve of this year’s Science 2.0 Conference (25 to 26 March).

We invite all participants from different disciplines who are interested to exchange knowledge and experiences in the context of Science 2.0 and Open Science. The open format of a Barcamp allows the presentation of new ideas that can be discussed and developed.

Short talk by Christian Heise [slides]

Nowerdays the battle of open versus closed is replaced with more complex debates, which are, unfortunately, a bit boring for many researchers. What does that mean for the spread of the science 2.0, the open and the citizen science movement?

Background information: The Barcamp Science 2.0 as “unconference”

Anyone can register for and attend the Barcamp Science 2.0 without cost. Participation is the key: everone who attends can contribute – by organising a session that offers room for subsequent discussion. You are also welcome if you just prefer to listen and to discuss. You can follow the barcamp on the web with the hashtag #s20bar. Blogposts are expressly encouraged.

The programme will be decided spontaneously in the morning where everyone can suggest sessions. A majority vote decides which sessions will be held. You can prepare something or hold a session on the fly. The barcamp languages are German and English.
