“Collaboration in Action” is the Theme For the Joint Roadmap For Open Science Tools (JROST) 2020 Conference; Dates and Call For Submissions Released
The Joint Roadmap for Open Science Tools (JROST) Conference is back this December 14-16th.
Two years ago, over 85 participants from 50+ organizations got together in person and online to discuss a collaborative, sustainable future for open research tools. Part of that conversation was anchored in a “Joint Roadmap for Open Science Tools” (the name of the event, or JROST for short), but it represented much more.
This December, we’re proud to bring you the second JROST conference, a virtual event designed to hold space for the community of practitioners building, maintaining, and advocating for open tools to support research and collaboration. That aim was important in 2018, but is even more so today as we navigate a series of global crises that’s both heightening the need and demand for open research but also causing us to evaluate the tools, technologies and infrastructures that make that work possible.
