*Con­fer­ence on Philo­sophy and His­tory of Open Sci­ence #PHOS16 *
Hel­sinki, Finland, Nov 30 - Dec 1, 2016

Open communication has been a central cornerstone of research since the
early days. In our increasingly data-intensive era, research practice and
dissemination are facing new challenges as well as opportunities. What is
the overall significance of the open science movement and what are, if any,
the historical roots and varieties of this movement? This two-day
conference brings together contemporary open science advocates and scholars
to discuss particular themes relevant to openness in contemporary research
practice, including reproducibility, transparency, reusability, politics of
science, and other topics as well as their historical roots, in order to
gain a broader perspective on these issues. Participation is free and open
for the research and the general public. Register now
