Lightning Talks (all participants)
 Presentations and Abstracts
This session will be 5-minute talks from participants of FSCI.  These short talks are meant to present something the presenter is passionate about, related to scholarly communications.  Talks may be about new technology that might change  our lives or vanish without a trace, tell us about a policy that has made a difference somewhere, rants about how the scholarly communications world should be, and other topics.  The talks will inspire us to think and to discuss things that make an impact on scholarly communications.

Do-A-Thon (all participants)
We invite you to join us for dedicated time of making, collaborating, trying, teaching, designing, testing, and learning in the name of Open Research and Education.   
Come to the MET - Auditorium on Wednesday, August 1 from 4:45pm to 6:15pm and get oriented. 
After dinner, Do-A-Thon! teams can work in the The Paul Saltman Lounge (Revelle College - Keeling Hall Bldg. 3, 5th Floor) from 7:30p - 10p. 

What is a do-a-thon?  Building off the concept of a hackathon, a do-a-thon is a work-sprint where people from different skill sets work together and collaborate on different challenges and projects. 
Our do-a-thon has three key goals:
1. Focus on doing, rather than just hacking.  The goal is action. Use the time to work on campaigns, strategy development, policy changes, resource creation, educating, and more! We want you to get creative with the approaches you take to create a more open system for sharing the world's information.

2. Explore problems deeply and thoughtfully.  We're asking participants to attempt to understand what the hurdles are in an issue before jumping straight to a solution. Ask lots of questions, but feel free to begin doing/making/building while thinking. 

3. Encourage collaboration across skill sets. Build solutions together.  Amazing things can happen when people with a wide variety of skills and experience come together. We want policy makers to talk to educators, librarians to work with web developers, scientists to collaborate with humanists, and everything in between. We're excited to see what happens when folks across disciplines and regions pool together their knowledge to imagine something big.
How can I participate?The official do-a-thon date is Wed Aug 1st beginning at 4:45p. Here are a few ways you can get involved and participate:
1. Anyone can propose a problem to work on.  Is there a big question or a small challenge you want to tackle in Open Research and Education? Here's a chance to share it with the community and work together on designing a solution. Participants can add projects to this document, and self-select into collaborative groups on the day of the event.
2. Anyone can contribute their skills and ideas to existing challenges and projects.  Participate simply by showing up, expressing interest, and finding new colleagues to sit side by side with and get things done!
