Hi all, 

We're back *tomorrow* (October 9) with this month's Science Lab community call. The call kicks off at 11 ET. Dial in information can be found below. 

This month, we’re pleased to introduce the launch of our forum – please join us there anytime, to find out about upcoming events, get involved in one of our many open projects, or discuss all things open science with the community. We’ll be pointing out a few topics of interest, and as always, taking your feedback on how we can make this project even better.

Also landing this month – the project formerly known as Interdisciplinary Programming is ready for launch as the Science Lab’s contributorship pilot program! Announced at Strange Loop and LXJS last year by Angelina Fabbro and Bill Mills, this initiative to build routes for designers, developers and researchers to work together on open science has evolved into the Mozilla Science Lab’s first pilot study on collaboration in the community. We’ll be hearing from Brian Bot of Sage Bionetworks, one of the science teams participating in this project, on what they’ve learned as an organization participating at the intersection of science and software development, and from Bill on what’s on offer at this program’s launch.

If that wasn’t enough announcements, MozFest is only 16 days away!  Mozilla’s annual festival in London, is where passionate thinkers and inventors come together to learn from one another and engage in a conversation about how the web can do more, and do better. The Science Lab will be there hosting the Science & the Web track – we have dozens of sessions examining the potential of the open web to re-define how we experiment, analyze and share scientific knowledge, and we hope you’ll join us for this exciting and interactive event. Joining us on the Science Lab call this month will be Knight-Mozilla fellow  Aure Moser, discussing her session on the future of computing for librarians, and ORCID’s own Laura Paglione, discussing her session on building a badging framework for scientists.
