  • 1. PracticingOpen ScienceWilliam J Schroeder, Kitware, Inc.Brian Wylie, Sandia National LabsMarcus Hanwell, Kitware, Inc.

2. Speakers & Topics William Schroeder, President & CEO, Kitware, Inc. - The whys and hows of Open Science Dr. Marcus Hanwell, R&D Engineer, Kitware, Inc. - Building an open-source research program Brian Wylie, Sandia National Labs - Research collaborations from a government perspective 3. The Scientific Method Document Share Data Methodology ArchiveGalileo Galilei 1613 4. Open ScienceEnsuring reproducibility Open Documents - Hypothesis - DescriptionsREPRODUCIBILITY - ResultsPositive EvidenceNegative Evidence Open DataAccumulate Disproof SupportHypothesis Open Methodology - Experimental apparatus - Software If it isnt reproducible, it isnt - Workflow science - Parameter Sets 5. Example: Insight Journal Timely publishing of publications, data, and software Evaluated automatically; further reviewed by communityPDF doc Journal Git RepositoryCodeInput Author Data ResultsWebBuildDataSiteMachines 6. Example: OSA Interactive Science Publishing (ISP) Augmented PDF Contains links to executable viewer Downloads data and viewer as necessary to reproducepaper images (results) 7. Benefits of Open Science Collaboration much of our intelligence and creativityresults from interactions with tools and - Leveraging international communities artifacts and from collaborating with other and expertizeindividuals. -- Shneiderman Innovation - Facilitate technology mashups - Move science to application faster - More focus on technology; less on protection Business Models - Growing the pie, creating new opportunities - Customization, software integration 8. Example: Collaboration NIH National Center of Biomedical Computing NA-MIC Developing the OS NA-MIC Kit; 3D Slicer application 9. Example: Innovation (Open Source for Medical Imaging)Creating VTK (VisualizationToolkit)Led to the creation of:- ITK- VolView- BioImageXD- Osirix- MedINRIA- VisTrails- NIH / NCI caBIG XIP- VR-Renderer- IGSTK- ParaView- Etc. 10. Example: Business Models Kitware: Building open source collaborationplatforms - Engaging in collaborative R&D - Providing technology integration services - Creating custom solutionsCMakeCDash 11. The Open Technology Highway Provide an open infrastructure - Support research, teaching, non-profit and commercial activities - Any (legal) activity can hang off of the highway - Spur innovation, create opportunities - Get from idea to product faster - Do not have to replicate technology - Too many toll gates (i.e., closed systems) slows everything down 12. Next Up Marcus: Building a research program for chemistry Brian: open science and research collaboration from a government perspective
