*** Open Science Days 2016, February 17/18, Berlin ***

Dear Colleagues,

The Max Planck Digital Library would like to remind you of the upcoming Open Science Days in Berlin on February 17/18.

Citizen Science is this year's focus topic: We will have exciting reports from researchers who try to advance their activities by including the help of non-researchers in their specific projects. Those activities include e.g. the collection of environmental data from the ocean via smartphone and sampling kit. Another project, which deals with the behavior of chimpanzees, features the evaluation of huge amounts of short films taken by camera traps in the jungle. Besides further topics we will also hear about experiences on collecting money for scientific projects through crowdfunding platforms.

The keynote on Citizen Science will be held by Aletta Bonn while on the second day Ulrich Herb is going to take a close look on the current state of Open Science in general.
For further details please visit: http://osd.mpdl.mpg.de/

If you had the time and inclination to join us, we would be pleased to welcome you in Berlin!

*** Open Science Days 2016, February 17/18, Berlin ***

The Max Planck Digital Library (MPDL) cordially invites you to participate in the in the Open Science Days 2016.

The event will take place at the Harnack House in Berlin and is going to extend over one and a half days (February 17/18). It is directed at researchers and specialists from inside and especially from outside the Max Planck Society who are interested in an interdisciplinary communication about Open Science.

At the forthcoming conference, we would like to put an emphasis on one of the numerous areas of Open Science:
The focus topic in 2016 will be CITIZEN SCIENCE.

The concept refers to the growing involvement of amateur or non-professional scientists in the research process. In some research fields, like e.g. environmental research, this involvement already has become a common practice. Other research disciplines seem to be more reluctant and yet it is unclear, whether Citizen Science will be an important factor in all areas of the entire research process in the future.

The conference language will be English. The participation fee is 100 € and the number of participants is limited to 80 persons. For registration, preliminary program and additional information please visit: http://osd.mpdl.mpg.de/
