Open Source Software: An Important Tool for Advancing Science

Join us for a special event presented by Open Source Science (OSSci) and sponsored by ChiPy, as we explore the transformative power of open source in scientific research and discovery. In collaboration with PyData Chicago, this event brings together scientists and open-source developers to address the unique challenges faced by the scientific community and unlock the full potential of open source in advancing various fields, including chemistry, material science, life sciences, healthcare, and sustainability.

Learn how OSSci, a NumFOCUS initiative, is bridging the gap between scientists and open-source software development, aiming to accelerate scientific breakthroughs. Through short talks from Sandra Gesing and Sou-Cheng Choi, you will gain insights into cutting-edge projects like QMCPy, a versatile framework revolutionizing computational sciences through (Quasi) Monte Carlo algorithms. Additionally, explore the role of science gateways and the SGX3 NSF Center of Excellence in supporting open-source science, providing services and resources to facilitate collaboration and innovation.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from experts at the forefront of open source in science and explore the vast possibilities for collaboration, advancement, and accelerating scientific discovery. Whether you’re a scientist, developer, or simply passionate about the intersection of open source and science, this event promises to be an enlightening and inspiring experience.

This event is happening on Thursday July 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM at Sully’s House, at 1501 N Dayton St in Chicago Illinois.
