How to Participate
- Go through the information on this page, and register for the event online, you will get an account on this wiki soon after that.
- Sign in, and browse the existing projects and ideas
- If you want, create a new project by cloning the project template.
- If you propose a project, you will have to give a 3 minutes talk about your project or idea.
- Or idea using the idea template.
- Add your name to one or more projects that interest you, by editing that wiki page and adding your name.
To browse proposals for projects, please go to Project List Page
How It Works
Participants (that's you!) will create or join a project team, and work with that team for the duration of the weekend.
A project can be anything about sharing science on the web. It might be a way to communicate ideas, visualize a dataset, or even recruit help! If you have an idea you're excited about, you should create a project. And if you are interested in seeing what others have proposed, then you can browse all the other projects.
