@nlharris for the lightning talks, are we putting the presentations on one computer? Do we do this in the intermission between sessions? Thanks!
Hi, @kaushik-work, thanks for asking and sorry for the delay (the BOSC organizers were all out to dinner). We ask ALL speakers (not just those with lightning talks) to copy their slides onto the podium computer during the break before their session. Your talk isn’t until Day 2 after lunch, but for those who are speaking in one of the first morning sessions tomorrow (Data Crunching and Data Modeling), they need to copy their slides to the podium computer during the break between the ISMB morning keynote and the BOSC opening at 10:15.
Thanks @nlharris ! Should we convert the talks to PDF (I have mine in google slides format)?
That’s probably safest. Another option would be to open your slide URL in the web browser on the podium computer and bookmark it so you can bring it up quickly when you start your talk. That’s riskier, though—in my experience, the wifi at conferences is sometimes slow and can be unreliable.
:thumbsup: Thanks @nlharris
Hi all, don’t miss the keynote talk by Nicola Mulder at 2pm! And if you are speaking in the afternoon session, now’s a good time to copy your slides onto the podium computer.
Everyone coming to the CoFest tomorrow or Saturday, please confirm if you need lunch either or both days (new column on the registration form added last night), and if you have any special dietary requirements (e.g. vega, vegetarian). A few people have said they can only come for one day due to travel constraints, so this will really help with catering. Link: https://www.open-bio.org/events/bosc/collaborationfest/

I forgot to mention in the announcements this morning -- everyone should make sure to stay on the microphone, otherwise the recording won't pick you up!
Please order your drinks at the Markthalle bar, even if you order food at one of the food counters. We agreed to order drinks at their bar in exchange for their giving us reserved seating. 🥤🍺🍹🍷🍸
Hey people, is it possible to update the slides after publishing to F1000? Might need to update a figure after getting permission. Thanks!
I bet it is, but you should ask F1000! We don’t have control over the slides published there. Thanks for publishing your slides!
@tonyyzy I had that issue two years ago, then you could not update f1000 uploads under poster or slides, unlike the paper uploads
Do moan at them! Zenodo always permits New Version (with new DOI), you shouldn't be forced to do a fresh deposit
Btw, the BOSC "proceedings" linked to from https://www.open-bio.org/events/bosc/schedule/ are on Google Drive, which feels quite temporary. Could you post the PDF to Zenodo so it has a more long term storage? (Perhaps the same for previous years proceedings)
@stain Thanks for reminding me—I did intend to put the proceedings somewhere more permanent (I put it in gdrive for ease of updating while it was still in development). Zenodo is a good idea (I was going to put it on GitHub).
F1000 gives us a channel that pulls together all BOSC content, including the meeting report. It's also integrated with the ISCB community channel there.
Yes, I think it was ISCB that initially led us to F1000? They have also been BOSC sponsors several times (which doesn’t bind us to them, of course, but it is a factor to consider). However, if F1000 is not serving the needs of our presenters (I saw your complaints about it on Twitter), we may reconsider.
Honestly, I’m not sure whether Zenodo existed yet (or maybe we just weren’t aware of it) back when we chose F1000 (several years ago).
Hi @sbliven, I think CodeCite / some variation of it is going to continue at the eLife Innovation Sprint – we also have someone from the FORCE11 software citation implementation group... we could try and loop you in remotely if it's helpful, and if you're available? (Sep 4–5)
yes, the team will definitely continue at the sprint :) and the more the merrier :)
Thanks for the responses. @emmyft, I would be interested if there's an opportunity for remote participation!
Did you solve the chicken-and-egg problem of pre-registering for a zenodo DOI before the release? Writing the CFF once is straightforward, but I'm still uncertain about how to integrate it into our release process.
I think we had the idea of scripting a PR back to the original repo to add the DOI details after the DOI was created - my brain is getting foggy though
but a PR means you can review it before merging the content - automated feels a little hairy
