1st Conference down under

19th March 2013

Symplectic is pleased to announce its first Australian User Conference, which will take place on Tuesday 19th February 2013 at the University of Melbourne. Building on the success of our Annual User Conference, the event will facilitate a forum of discussion amongst our Australian clients to better understand their needs.

Details of the event can be found on our Eventbrite page.

We will be joined by speakers from two of our sister companies here at Digital Science:

Euan Adie, Altmetric

Euan Adie is founder of Altmetric. Before that he was a senior product manager at nature.com, where he looked after products ranging from an online reference manager to NPG’s mobile apps. Originally a computer scientist, Euan got interested in STM publishing and the concept of post-publication review after working as a bioinformatics researcher at the University of Edinburgh. Between 2005 and 2009 he ran postgenomic.com, which aggregated the thousands of blog posts written by life scientists about published scholarly articles. You can follow him @altmetric.

Mark Hahnel, Figshare

Mark is the founder of figshare, an open data tool that allows researchers to publish all of their data in a citable, searchable and sharable manner. Mark is relatively fresh out of academia, having completed his PhD in stem cell biology at Imperial College London in 2011. He is passionate about open research and the potential it has to revolutionise the research community. For more information about figshare, visit http://figshare.com. You can follow him @figshare.
