Gathering for Open Science Hardware (GOSH)
From Shannon Dosemagen via the Citizen Science Association listserv:
GOSH is an ongoing meeting series and designed to support a stronger and more collaborative community in open hardware for science. In 2016, we convened for the first time at CERN, which has led to the creation of the GOSH Manifesto and an ongoing effort to create a roadmap for open science hardware, a burgeoning community, and ongoing individual and organizational collaborations. In March 2017, we will continue to explore the diversity of existing projects, share best practices, and identify needs with those engaged in making and using open hardware within research institutions and beyond. We’ll listen to user stories and developer journeys, host a series of workshops on topics such as sharing and licensing and design for manufacture, as well as host build sessions to learn from other projects.
The deadline for applications is December 9, 2016 and invitations will be sent out by early January 2017. We have limited space and will aim to maximize representation from sectors, disciplines and regions based on the attendance goals noted in the application.
There will be an opportunity to participate in some sessions remotely for those who are unable to join us in Chile.
There is no registration cost and we are currently in the process of sourcing travel sponsorship. We're not currently in a position to guarantee support but we hope to assist attendees where possible. Let us know on the form if funding assistance would be useful to you. If you know of an organisation which might be willing to sponsor GOSH, please let us know.
Please send this to appropriate lists and individuals. You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
