AARON SWARTZ Hackathon & “Hack your PhD”

Saturday 26th of january there will be two event :

15:00 to 19:00 - Hack your phd :

“Hack your Phd” launched in October 2012. Brings together a diverse community of doctoral researchers, designers and social entrepreneurs around the issues of Open Science. The goal here is to set up workshops (or “hackatons”) to experiment with different initiatives of open Science while educating the public on this issue. The central idea is to use the collective intelligence of the community coming from different horizons using the new tools from science and open education.

20:00 to … sunday - Aaron Swartz memorial hackaton :
