EGI 2015 workshop to explore how to choose an open license for data or code
A special workshop on how to choose the right open licence for code and data will take place at this year's EGI Conference, in Lisbon on Tuesday May 19th at 11.00.
The workshop will address the at times contradictory advice presently available from a range of online sources. This advice will be compared and contrasted with the experiences of developers, who will provide a series of 10 minute presentations on a variety of related subjects.
Some of the areas that will be covered include liability clauses in European jurisdictions, liability, the provision of e-infrastructure, research misconduct, tensions between IT security and scientific transparency, and sustainability.
EGI 2015 will take place at the University of Lisbon's ISCTE-IUL school of business and will take place in its main auditorium and adjoining rooms. Based in the centre of Lisbon, the venue is close to a number of hotels and major travel links.
