Conference Format

The format of the conference is heavily inspired by the dot-Astronomy conference series. There will be short talks, practical tutorials and a hack day, during which teams of participants work on short projects. Possible project ideas include: websites, apps, papers, teaching and outreach materials, or even music videos.

In particular the software carpentry and data carpentry sessions offer tutorials that aim to ground participants in some of the useful tools and technologies in use by different fields. The unconference sessions facilitate open conversations, debates and collaboration time.
