Workshop on Finding and Re-using Open Scientific Resources

Ope Knowledge Foundation announced in its blog the forthcoming workshop on “Finding and Re-using Open Scientific Resources” to be held in London on November 8, 2008. A snippet from the wiki page:

This informal, hands-on workshop will focus on finding and re-using open scientific resources – including public domain data, open access journal articles, and open educational materials. We will look at existing tools for discovering open material, metadata standards for relevant material in different domains, and how researchers go about looking for the material they need.

In addition to focused discussions about legal and technological aspects of re-use, open scientific resources will be documented and tagged on CKAN [Comprehensive Knowledge Archive Network], a registry of knowledge resources.

Details of the workshop are as follows:
