Open Science Codefest

September 2-4, 2014

Santa Barbara, CA

Open Science Codefest will gather researchers from ecology, biodiversity science, and other earth and environmental sciences with computer scientists, software engineers, and developers to collaborate on coding projects of mutual interest.

Design. Code. Discuss.

Inspired by hack-a-thons and organized in the participant-driven, unconference style, the Open Science Codefest is for anyone with an interesting problem, solution, or idea that intersects environmental science and computer programming. This is the conference where you will actually get stuff done -- whether that's coding up a new R module, developing an ontology, working on a data repository, creating data visualizations, dreaming up an interactive eco-game, discussing an idea, or any other concrete collaborative goal that interests a group of people.

Open Science Codefest 2014 will be held in Santa Barbara on September 2-4, 2014 at the Fess Parker Santa Barbara Hotel.

Registration is free. Register at http://nceas.github.io/open-science-codefest.
