Date : Mardi 6 juillet 2010 Durée : 0 minutes

Attend the scientific workshop !

Jean Thiery Workshops supplement conferences and round tables with
- demonstrations,
- customized information,
- constructive dialogues,
- small group discussions,
- etc.

The permanent Workshop on Science and Free-Libre Software will emphasize the essential role of free-libre software for the development of Science.

Free-libre scientific software is developed by skilled experts. It competes with proprietary software for quality. Computer programs are refutable while proprietary ones are not. How can we evaluate a scientific publication based on a computer program if this program is closed and cannot be analysed ?

The workshop will be open to scientific popularization, especially with the OLPC project (One Laptop Per Child) http://laptop.org/en/vision/mission… . Demonstrations will be presented with the Sugar learning platform on XO computers and on USB keys. http://www.sugarlabs.org/

    • eminent Web sites,
    • documents for display,
    • flyers for distribution, etc.
  • With computer demonstrations.
