The Mozilla Festival, “MozFest” will take place in London, UK – November 6 – 8 and the call for proposals is up and running. This year the Science Lab is hosting the “Open Science Track” and is looking for participants from around the world to join us to work on projects furthering open science. MozFest is where many of Mozilla’s best and most innovative ideas come from, bringing together over 1,500 inventors, hackers, creatives, researchers and more to share ideas and explore how we can forge the future of the web together and we’d love to have you help us shape the program.


Here are a few ideas to get the creative juices flowing :

  • Getting started with Open Source : What does it mean to “Work Openly” ? Help us unpack some of the social and technical aspects of Open Source, and explore ways to build contributorship in science.
  • Open Data : Openness is key to advancing discovery. What role does data play and what cool things can we do with open data ?
  • Training for Open Science : Hands-on training for data or tools to help us better enable the community to do more efficient, collaborative science and further the adoption of open research practice. Work with data or open source ? Come help us hack on some entry level lesson material to teach some data tricks, explore exercises and run trainings that show the value of collaboration and code review.
