 Join Us Friday Oct 19th and Saturday Oct 20th at the Computer History
Museum in Mountain View.

At the 3rd Annual Open Science Summit we will examine some the most
exciting recent developments in Open Science.  If you cannot attend, please
let others know about the conference and consider making a donation to
support the event through the eventbrite link.

In 2012, we have seen the tipping point for the Open Access movement as
both researchers and the public have pushed to accelerate the transition to
a better model for scholarly publishing.

The rise of "Open Source" medical devices and hardware hacking has also
been prominent in 2012, with great coverage in outlets like the Economist.
 See  http://www.economist.com/node/21556098<http://opensciencesummit.us5.list-manage1.com/track/click?u=cbf45ecfadcd2c3e0c568a762&id=4ba5202bf1&e=1eaacf5fdc>

We are particularly pleased to showcase several of these projects,
including the fantastic adaptation of Reprap, a popular open source 3D
printing initiatve, for use in tissue engineering.

This is one more example of how open innovation is transforming critical
fields like regenerative medicine.

We'll also examine the changing face of the pharmaceutical industry and
specifically, some great advances in the field of Rare Disease research,
where Open Science is starting to make a huge difference.

For example, Jimmy Lin's groundbreaking work with the Rare Genomics
Institute, which has run a program analogous to a kickstarter for rare
diseases!  http://raregenomics.org/patients.php<http://opensciencesummit.us5.list-manage.com/track/click?u=cbf45ecfadcd2c3e0c568a762&id=361018db0b&e=1eaacf5fdc>

Full speaker line up and session topics are available at

Expect to once again hear a broad range of topics of critical importance to
creating better, more efficient, and OPEN scientific collaboration.
