In the last few weeks I have put a lot of time and effort to help organising a number of events. Each of them would deserve its own post, but due to time constraints (both on my side and with some of the deadlines coming up already), I will only give a quick overview right now and follow up on them later:
- First things first: I am thrilled to announce that there will be a Special Track on Recommendation, Data Sharing, and Research Practices in Science 2.0 at this year’s I-KNOW conference! The special track provides an interdisciplinary forum for international scientists to discuss theoretical and practical aspects of Science 2.0. We are looking for contributions in the form of full papers (8 pages). I posted the full CfP over at TELeurope. Submission deadline is April 30.
- Barcamp Graz gets a new edition this year. It will be on May 7 & 8 and will feature the usual suspects: a WissensCamp on knowledge management, a PolitCamp on the political side of Web 2.0 (with a focus on the recent developments in North Africa and Open Government), an iCamp on all things iPhone and iPad, and a Designcamp. More information on barcamp.at. To get a rough overview of what a barcamp is, see the corresponding post from last year.
- The Joint European Summer School on Technology Enhanced Learning will take place in Chania, Greece on the beautiful island of Crete from May 30 to June 3. Due to public demand, this year’s focus will be on methodology. My involvment is just beginning with the student committee currently forming. We are playing around first ideas for activities. The deadline for student applications is March 18, and the deadline for tutor applications is March 30. For more information see the website.
And there is even more in the pipeline: currently we are busy setting up a challenge in the area of Open Data at I-KNOW 2011. So stay tuned for updates and hopefully I will see you at one or the other event!
