2:00-3:30pm “Open Science, Free Software, and Citizen Astronomers' Dr. David Hogg Science Library, Standish Room, 3rd Floor - Being open in scientific research--sharing code and ideas before publication, for example--can yield huge direct benefits for scientific investigators. This is most true when ideas are cheap but execution is expensive; these conditions are met in most (but not all) scientific fields. One of the big side effects of extreme openness is that it makes it easy for outsiders (non-traditionally trained or self-trained) scientists to contribute meaningfully to research. Dr. Hogg will give examples from work by his group. A reception will follow the talk in the Standish Room.


4:00-4:45: Tour of College of Nanoscale Sciences and Engineering - The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) of the University at Albany - State University of New York (SUNY) is a global education, research, development and technology deployment resource dedicated to preparing the next generation of scientists and researchers in nanotechnology.
