I can appreciate it isn't obvious from the minimal detail about it on site
at the moment, but there's also another open science session that's been


   *Introduction to Text and Data Mining (TDM): Technical and Legal
   Considerations* – Puneet Kishor (Creative Commons), Peter Murray-Rust
   (University of Cambridge), Ross Mounce (University of Bath)

   We'll be covering TDM from an open science / academic research
   point-of-view with a hands-on workshop, demonstrating software tools, hence
   we're in the tools stream.

   (But it's worth noting that the same tools / techniques / philosophy are
   very applicable to other fields e.g. data journalism, open government data,
   open humanities, open GLAM etc...)

   All the best,

   Ross :)
