Make a difference: join the OS SIG Committee!

Make a difference: join the OS SIG Committee!

Nominations for the OHBM Open Science Special Interest Group (OS SIG) committee for OHBM 2022 will open in June 2021. Stay tuned!

The open-science movement is one of the best things happening in neuroscience. Hackathons, open-science room, new tools and methods, reproducibility and reliability, open access and inclusivity: the OS SIG is the place where it’s all happening!

If open-science excites you and you want to help push its frontiers, please consider applying for a position in the OS SIG!

Early career researchers, BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and people from outside Europe and North America especially encouraged to apply!

All OS SIG officers have reduced or no-cost registration for OHBM 2021!

We have MANY opportunities to get involved with open-science and OHBM if you think nominating yourself for a position in the OS SIG is more time than you’d like to commit, please reach out to us about volunteering!

We are looking for a group of interested volunteers to help coordinate the international effort of creating Hackathons and the open-science Room! Please join us!

If you’re interested in taking your open-science skills to the next level, consider applying for our open-science Fellows program (more information coming in early fall).
