We’re heading to NetSci 2019!

Note: PLOS is excited to sponsor the Open NetSci Hackathon and support NetSci 2019.

We can’t wait to see you at NetSci 2019! We’re gearing up for the hackathon (May 25-26) and conference (May 27-31), and want to help you make the most of your NetSci experience. Get ready to meet PLOS staff, tell us the latest research you’re reading, and submit your manuscript to our PLOS ONE Science of Stories call for papers.

Open NetSci Hackathon

Join us for NetSci’s inaugural hackathon. This year’s theme is open code and data, and our CC BY content is made for this! The hackathon will also feature keynote speaker Cassidy Sugimoto and experts on site to help with projects.  

Anyone registered for the NetSci 2019 School and Satellites can join, free of charge, and groups and individual participants are welcome. Learn how to sign up and get involved here.

Chat with us and #shareyourcode

  • Throughout the hackathon and the conference we want you to tweet about any papers, code bases or open code projects using the hashtag #shareyourcode and tagging @PLOSChannels. We’ll feature select works in the PLOS Complexity Channel, curated by Channel Editors including NetSci’s very own Laurent Hébert-Dufresne.
  • At the NetSci conference, PLOS ONE editor Deanne Dunbar will be attending NetSci and will be taking part in the “Chat with the Editors” panel.
  • If you’re a PLOS ONE Academic Editor, we’ll be holding a meet up May 30– email us to attend!

There’s still time to submit your research to the PLOS ONE Science of Stories call for papers! The call and upcoming Collection include research with diverse perspectives from the humanities and the sciences to:

  • Explore the nature of narrative and narrative thinking in texts and other media.
  • Propose methods to extract stories from datasets and vice versa.
