Wednesday October 26
12:00 – 1:30pm
Brown bag lunch and discussion of open access
Science Library, Standish Room, 3rd Floor
Bring a lunch and the libraries will provide drinks.  Discussion moderator will be Irina Holden, Information Literacy and Science Outreach Librarian. R.S.V.P  Lorre Smith
2:00 – 3:30pm
“Open Science, Free software, and Citizen Astronomers” Dr. David Hogg
Science Library, Standish Room, 3rd Floor
Being open in scientific research -- sharing code and ideas before publication, for example--can yield huge direct benefits for scientific investigators.  This is most true when ideas are cheap but execution is expensive; these conditions are met in most (but not all) scientific fields.  One of the big side effects of extreme openness is that it makes it easy for outsiders (non-traditionally trained or self-trained) scientists to contribute meaningfully to research.  Dr. Hogg will give examples from work by his group. A reception will follow the talk in the Standish Room.
4:00 - 4:45
Tour of College of Nanoscale Sciences and Engineering
The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) of the University at Albany - State University of New York (SUNY) is a global education, research, development and technology deployment resource dedicated to preparing the next generation of scientists and researchers in nanotechnology.
R.S.V.P. Lorre Smith by October 21, 2011.
