CFP: 4th Workshop on Open Science in Big Data (part of IEEE BigData 2019)

Hey everyone,

Are you working on a research project with an Open Science component? If so, then I would like to encourage you to submit your work–completed, in-progress, “lessons learned”–to the 2019 Open Science in Big Data (OSBD) workshop, held in conjunction with the IEEE BigData Conference on December 9-12. This is the fourth year of the workshop, following its very successful 2016, 2017, and 2018 years in Washington, D.C., Boston, and Seattle, respectively. We’re hoping to continue the successes of the past three years and improve further upon the workshop this year.

The keynote speaker this year is Carol Willing (@WillingCarol), a Python Steering Council Member & PSF Fellow, Project Jupyter Core Developer, and Global Keynote Speaker on Open Source!
