I have a million thoughts swirling in my head after Science Online 2013, and a million more things I want to learn about and accomplish for Science Online 2014. I find reflection after these conferences a useful way to organize all those thoughts, and make an action plan for what I need to learn and accomplish.
If you feel the same way as me, you are already writing your first post-#scio13 blog posts. If you attended the identity session co-moderated by me (AKA Kate Kane) and Scicurious (AKA Batwoman), or attended a watch party or even just read the tweets, I imagine you have something thoughtful to contribute to this discussion. So please consider writing a post reacting to the session and submitting it to the carnival!
Alberto Roca of MinorityPostdoc.org has been running a fantastic Diversity in Science Carnival for some time now, and I’m pleased to say I finally get the privilege to host it here at Context and Variation. You can view past carnivals here for inspiration.
Feel free to have your post simply be a reaction or recap of the session, or a tangential discussion that was triggered by the session. But if you want a little guidance, here are a few questions to get you started on your post:
The deadline for submission for this carnival is February 28th, 2013 at midnight wherever you live. The submission form is here. Please publicize and think about this topic. Perhaps the results of this carnival could lead to another moderated session for #scio14 the follows up on our shared thinking, and two of you could run the show.
