Now in its third year, ReCon is in Edinburgh on Friday the 24th June, with a Hackday the next day. This is an interesting conference covering subjects such as data visualization and metrics amongst others from some top speakers.
Chris is looking forward to seeing what it's all about.
ReCon (Research Conference) is designed to raise and discuss current issues to do with research communication in academia and beyond. These issues range from the use of metrics for evaluating research, access to publications, how to share and store data, government policy to how this affects careers and incentives for researchers. ReCon will include speakers from government agencies, academics, publishers, people working in outreach and founders of startups working in the research space.
