ScienceOnline 2011 Conference
The ScienceOnline Conference (January 13 to 15, Research Triangle Park, North Carolina) is the fifth annual international meeting to discuss (in “unconference” style) the way that the internet is changing how science is communicated, taught, and done. View the full program.
Panel: MLK Jr. Memorial Session
Since the conference occurs over MLK Weekend, we set aside time to honor Martin Luther King, Jr.’s legacy as well as discuss issues relating to the underrepresentation of minorities in the STEM discplines, in general, and specificially in the science online community. See the link to the program above for the full session description at the conference wiki. Video from the session was published March 13.
