Dear All

On behalf of the organising committee for GOSH! 2016, the Gathering
for Open Science Hardware taking place at CERN during 2-5 March 2016,
I'd like to tell you a little about it and invite you to apply to join
another 50 active users, developers and thinkers in open hardware for
science, which we think has the potential to greatly benefit research
and education.

GOSH! is designed to seed what we hope will be an on-going meeting
series and a stronger and more collaborative community in open
hardware for science. We want to explore the diversity of existing
projects, share best practices and identify needs within the groups
engaged in making and using open hardware both within research
institutions and beyond. We’ll listen to user stories and developer
journeys, host a series of talk and workshops on everything from
sharing and licensing to design for manufacture and participate in
build workshops to learn from other projects.

For more information and to apply via the lightweight form by 19
December 2015 please see http://openhardware.science/. Invitations
will be sent out by early January. We are sorry to have such limited
space for the event and there will be an opportunity to participate in
some sessions remotely and hopefully join us for a larger event in

There is no registration cost and we are currently in the process of
sourcing travel sponsorship. We're not currently in a position to
guarantee support but we hope to be able to assist attendees where
possible and particularly to fund any participants from the global
South. Do let us know on the form if funding assistance would be
useful to you. If you know of an organisation which might be willing
to sponsor GOSH, please let us know and you can view more information
on the event and our basic funding proposal here [1].

Thank you very much and we hope this is of interest. Do contact me
with any questions and feel free to spread the word to anyone you can
think of who might wish to apply.

Best wishes


on behalf of the GOSH! 2016 organising committee:

Greg Austic, Michigan State University
Adam Wolf, Princeton University
Jenny Molloy, University of Cambridge
Francois Grey, University of Geneva and CERN
Shannon Dosemagen, Public Lab
Aurora Thornhill, Kickstarter
Urs Gaudenz, Gaudi Labs
