The inaugural workshop will launch an extended programme of workshops which bring about LIBSENSE-Connect goals of nurturing an innovative, forward-looking technical community that is pivotal in creating the infrastructure to advance open science in Africa. Held at the NITDA IT Hub of the University of Lagos from Monday, 6 to Wednesday, November 8, 2023, the last day will be devoted to discussions and engagement with academics and other interested parties to promote the emergence of an inclusive learning community on campus that focuses on sharing and promoting Open Science practices. See the workshop website for more details and timetable.
What Participants can Expect
We believe in the power of collaboration. The programme will engage participants in a "shared endeavour" - building a shared, online community resource based on a GitLab repository. The intention is that the participants will increasingly contribute to this community resource during the workshop and as the programme progresses.
Start the journey with like-minded software developers, infrastructure experts, librarians, researchers and enthusiasts. Delve into the principles of open science and help shape its future in Africa and beyond.
You can register for the workshop to participate in person in Lagos or join remotely for the hybrid “AI for and from Open Repositories: Opportunities and Challenges” session.
