Science Online 2012

Dates: January 19 – 21, 2012
Location: Raleigh, North Carolina

Science Online 2012 is the sixth annual international meeting on science and the Web.

Every January since 2007, the Research Triangle area of North Carolina has hosted scientists, students, educators, physicians, journalists, librarians, bloggers, programmers and others interested in the way the World Wide Web is changing the way science is communicated, taught and done.

ScienceOnline2012 — #scio12 across social media — will take place January 19-21, 2012 on the campus of N.C. State University, with some 450 participants.

As in all the previous years, the meeting will be held in an “unconference” style —  the program is built beforehand with the help of participants on the planning wiki, and the sessions are designed to foster conversations and discussions among everyone in the room rather than a traditional one-before-many lecture approach.
