Call for proposals

In addition to our brilliant speakers, AIMOS 2019 will give all attendees the opportunity to get involved. We invite submissions for workshops, unconference sessions, hackathons and posters.

  • A workshop is typically lead by one or two people who are experienced mentors who give guided instruction and training on a particular topic (e.g., preregistration, GitHub, R, power analysis). A workshop will typically be 1.5 hours or 3 hours.

  • An unconference session is typically lead by one or two people who facilitate a general discussion on a particular topic (e.g., challenges to adopting open science practices). This can be a loosely formed idea, but it’s a good opportunity to brainstorm your ideas and develop them further. This session may or may not lead to a hackathon. An unconference session will typically be 45 minutes or 1.5 hours.

  • In a hackathon the leaders coordinate a focused, hands-on project with a clear end goal (e.g., building an R package, curriculum development). A hackathon will typically be 1.5 hours or 3 hours.

  • Posters will be on show for the entire conference, allowing presenters to showcase their work to a broad audience. A dedicated poster session will also run to provide opportunities for discussion with your peers one-on-one or in small groups. Priority will be given to submissions from student researchers.
