Dear All

*I'm contacting you on behalf of the organizing committee for GOSH 2018,
the Gathering for Open Science Hardware taking place over four consecutive
days 10-13 October 2018 in Shenzhen, China. We would like to invite you to
apply to join another 100 active users, developers and thinkers in open
hardware for science to benefit research, education, and science
engagement.GOSH is an ongoing meeting series designed to support a stronger
and more collaborative community in open hardware for science. In 2016, we
convened for the first time at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland and then in
Santiago, Chile for GOSH 2017. These meetings have led to the creation of
the GOSH Manifesto <http://openhardware.science/gosh-manifesto/>and the
Global Open Science Hardware Roadmap
<http://openhardware.science/global-open-science-hardware-roadmap/>, a
burgeoning community, and ongoing individual and organizational
collaborations. In 2018, 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, design for
manufacture and scaling.  For more information and to apply using our
lightweight form please see http://openhardware.science/
<http://openhardware.science/> or apply directly here
Applicants from China can fill out the application via a MikeCRM form
<http://cn.mikecrm.com/HPUli8D> if preferred. The deadline for applications
is 20 May 2018 and invitations will be sent out by mid-June 2018. We have
limited space and will aim to ensure representation from different sectors,
disciplines and regions as noted in the application form. There will be an
opportunity to participate in some sessions remotely for those who are
unable to join us in China.There is an optional registration cost of $250
USD for those who can either afford to personally or through their
organization pay it. This money will support travel for those who could not
otherwise attend GOSH. Additional donations are very welcome. There
currently is limited travel funding available and we will be able to assist
on an as needed basis if this would otherwise be a barrier to your
participation. Let us know on the form if funding assistance would be
useful to you. If you know of an organization which might be willing to
sponsor GOSH, please let us know.Please send this invitation 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 Forum
<https://forum.openhardware.science/> (https://forum.openhardware.science/
<https://forum.openhardware.science/>) and @GOSHCommunity
<https://twitter.com/goshcommunity> on Twitter. Best wishesThe GOSH 2018

HackteriaAbout GOSHThe Gathering for Open Science Hardware (GOSH) is a
diverse, global community working to enhance the sharing of open,
scientific technologies. Apply to join us for our third annual meeting in
Shenzhen, China, 10-13 October 2018! Hardware forms a vital part of the
scientific experimental process but unfortunately the current supply chain
limits access and impedes creativity and customization through high
mark-ups and proprietary designs. Open source hardware addresses part of
this problem through sharing open designs for everything from microscopes
and biomaterials to spectrometers and sensors.  GOSH 2018 in Shenzhen is
our third annual meeting, convening a growing number of people around the
world who are developing and using open hardware in the context of the
wider movement for Open Science. We are bringing together up to 100 of the
most active global thought leaders, developers, researchers, community
convenors and other actors who can expand the reach of Open Science
Hardware within academic research, citizen science and education.
 Participants will join together as a community for four days to explore
our 2018 theme ‘scaling hardware, growing community’. We will conduct a
series of themed discussion groups, practical workshops and trips to local
Shenzhen businesses that can offer lessons and support for scaling Open
Science Hardware. GOSH has potential to broaden who can do science and for
what purposes in addition to improving quality and reproducibility of
experimental observations. We invite you to be a part of the Gathering and
the GOSH
希望能通过这次活动,让人们以更平滑的方式参加到科学活动中去。这次将会是一次实践以及实验性的活动。我们诚邀您成为 GOSH 的一员。*
