Hi all, 

We're back *this Thursday* (September 11) with our next Science Lab community call. Please note: we'll be starting the call 5 minutes after 11 ET, to pay respects to the the moment of silence for 9/11. 

On this month’s call we’ll be talking about events recent and upcoming that are bringing the open research community closer together. We’ll begin by introducing our new lead developer, Abby Cabunoc and our new community manager, Bill Mills, who have been working hard the past few weeks to reach out and understand how to build the Science Lab that best serves you. Abby and Bill just got back from the NCEAS Codefest, which was a huge success; we’ll hear from them on what they worked on and what they learned about where the community can go next.
Also from Codefest, we’ll be hearing from Kara Woo on a new paper, slated for journal submission, on how to enter the open  science community. There were tons of contributions to this discussion at Codefest, the results of which can be seen (and contributed to!) here. We’d love to hear your thoughts on this project and will be opening the floor for questions and comments after Kara walks us through it.

We’ll also be hearing from Leslie Chan (Univ. Toronto) and Angela Okune (iHub Research) on their work on the Open and Collaborative Science in Development Network, a new open science network focused on the global south. The team has an active call for proposal open, and will be telling us a bit more about what they’re looking for, and what problems they’re seeking to address.
