First GOSC All Hands Meeting, 1-2 June 2022

Registration is now open for the GOSC All Hands Meeting:

The GOSC initiative aims to encourage cooperation, alignment and interoperability among Open Science infrastructure initiatives around the world. It does so through a set of science and data Case Studies in areas of active collaboration across continents.  At the same time, thematic Working Groups are examining issues which are common to Open Science infrastructures.

On 1 and 2 June, 12:00-14:00 UTC, the GOSC initiative will hold its first ‘All Hands Meeting’, an opportunity for everyone involved in Working Groups and Case Studies to meet and share progress thereby to ensure interaction and synergy among the various activities.

This will be an important opportunity to present early achievements and progress, articulate challenges, to identify cross-cutting issues and to prepare for the forthcoming SciDataCon / IDW sessions.  In order to focus activity, we have also decided to set a challenge to the WGs and Case Studies: to present a Call to Action with a concrete, achievable outcome in the next six months.

DRAFT Agenda for the AHM

Day One (Weds 1 June, 12:00-14:00 UTC)
