Eurodoc2010 - Details on the conference and the session itself are available via the session's web page. Most of the session will make use of an Etherpad-based clickstream (embedded below) but there will also be some slides, embedded further below, and a discussion group at Friendfeed, embedded at the bottom of this page.
Two proposals for the Euroscience Open Forum 2010 have been submitted by Eurodoc and accepted on Nov 10, 2009:
"What would science look like if it were invented today? "
This will be a debate on how new communication tools such as wikis and other collaborative environments, blogs and microblogs can enrich scientific communication, how public post-publication peer review and contribution-based metrics can work. Special focus will be put on how young researchers can benefit from Open Access and Science 2.0 tools.
