“Open Science, Free software, and Citizen Astronomers” with Dr. David Hogg, Center for Cosmology and Physics, New York University
Time: 2:00 – 3:30pm 
Location: Science Library, Standish Room, 3rd Floor 
Being open in scientific research–sharing code and ideas before publication, for example–can yield huge direct benefits for scientific investigators. This is most true when ideas are cheap but execution is expensive; these conditions are met in most (but not all) scientific fields. One of the big side effects of extreme openness is that it makes it easy for outsiders (non-traditionally trained or self-trained) scientists to contribute meaningfully to research. Dr. Hogg will give examples from work by his group. A reception will follow the talk in the Standish Room.

Tour of the College of Nanoscale Sciences and Engineering
Time: 4:00 – 4:45:
Location: College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering
The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering is a global education, research, development and technology deployment resource dedicated to preparing the next generation of scientists and researchers in nanotechnology.
R.S.V.P. to Lorre Smith lsmith@albany.edu by October 21, 2011.
