Dear All,

I'm contacting you on behalf of the organising committee for GOSH 2017, the
Gathering for Open Science Hardware taking place in Santiago, Chile at
the Innovation
Centre at Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile during 22-25 March 2017.
We would like to invite you to apply to join another 75-100 active users,
developers and thinkers in open hardware for science to benefit research,
education, and science engagement.

GOSH is an ongoing meeting series and designed to support a stronger and
more collaborative community in open hardware for science. In 2016, we
convened for the first time at CERN, which has led to the creation of the GOSH
Manifesto <http://openhardware.science/gosh-manifesto/> and an ongoing
effort to create a roadmap for open science hardware, a burgeoning
community, and ongoing individual and organizational collaborations. In
March 2017, we will continue to explore the diversity of existing projects,
share best practices, and identify needs with those engaged in making and
using open hardware within research institutions and beyond. We’ll listen
to user stories and developer journeys, host a series of workshops on
topics such as sharing and licensing and design for manufacture, as well as
host build sessions to learn from other projects.

For more information and to apply using our lightweight form please see
http://openhardware.science/ or apply directly
<https://goo.gl/forms/kkae4CI7DcZR7kR72>. The deadline for applications is
December 9, 2016 and invitations will be sent out by early January 2017. We
have limited space and will aim to maximise representation from sectors,
disciplines and regions based on the attendance goals noted in the
application. There will be an opportunity to participate in some sessions
remotely for those who are unable to join us in Chile.

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 assist attendees where possible. 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.

Please send this to appropriate lists and individuals. You can contact us
at organizers at openhardware.science with any questions.

In the meantime, you can connect with the community via our googlegroup
<https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/open-science-hardware> and
@GOSHCommunity <https://twitter.com/goshcommunity> on Twitter. Look out for
the new GOSH forum, coming soon!

Best wishes

The GOSH 2017 organising committee:

   Shannon Dosemagen, Public Lab

   Max Liboiron, Memorial University of Newfoundland
