On science hackathons univercite 2016

My keynote talk at the Science Hackathon @ Univercite in Renens, Switzerland. #SHUC16. Credit goes to 2020science.net and software.ac.uk for funding, and to David Wright, Joanna Lewis, Ben Calderhead and Laurel Fogarty for organizing the first two Science Hackathons! A comprehensive article on how to organize Science Hackathons can be found here: https://elifesciences.org/content/4/e09944

How it all started...
Academia is challenging for early career researchers.
● Pressure to publish.
● Pressure to show “independent research”.
● Only a couple of % make it to permanent academic positions.
Independence is great, but most PhD students and post-docs are hired to do work
on predefined projects.
What can we do about it?
It all changed in 2014...
● Got a £3000 SSI Fellowship.
● ...and joined 2020 Science.
● Game on!
Hackathon vs. #sciencehack
● Aim: create code
● Crowd: coders
● Reward: create better
software, build expertise.
● Flexible, little prep req’d.
● Aim: create science/papers
● Crowd: researchers
● Reward: create a research
object, establish
independent
collaborations.
● Some prep req’d.

  • 1. On Science Hackathons Derek Groen @whydoitweet
  • 2. About this talk ● About me. ● How it all started. ● The previous Science Hackathons. ● Project Highlights ● Experiences and tips for Science Hackathon projects. ● For more info on #sciencehacks, see: http://dx.doi.org/10.7554/eLife.09944

  • 7. The 1st Science Hackathon ● Aim: write 5 draft research papers in 3 days (one per project). ● Try to do this in an unusual setting that maximizes creativity and minimizes distraction. ● Setting: “The Real Retreat” in Flore, Northamptonshire.
  • 9. The first Science Hackathon ● Goal: Create a (draft) scientific publication in three days. ● 5 projects, 22 participants, 2.5 days. ● Expected: ~2 draft papers. ● Outcomes: 6 draft papers and 2 software codes. ● Led to funding for a second Science Hackathon.
  • 10. The second Science Hackathon ● Venue: a (dark) ten bedroom house in Cambridge. ● 20 participants. ● 5 projects. ● www.sciencehackathon.com
  • 11. Project highlight “Where next for the reproducibility agenda in computational biology?” BMC Systems Biology 2016 10:52. Joanna Lewis, Charles E. Breeze, Jane Charlesworth, Oliver J. Maclaren and Jonathan Cooper
  • 12. Project highlight Software development practices in academia: a case study comparison arXiv:1506.05272 Derek Groen, Xiaohu Guo, James A Grogan, Ulf D Schiller, James M Osborne
  • 13. Project highlight (from 2nd Science Hackathon) Evaluation Myopia in Science: Evidence from the Research Excellence Framework Moqi Groen-Xu, Pedro Teixeira, Thomas Voigt and Bernhard Knapp (in preparation).
  • 14. Some tips from my side 1. Defining projects & forming teams. 2. Steam ahead during the event. 3. Follow up.
  • 15. Define a project ● Aim should be concrete, achievable and of value to all participants. ○ Avoid 'slave' labour; we made all participants co-authors of the papers, regardless of outcome. ○ Avoid mere planning. Get those hands dirty! ○ e.g.: journal paper draft, proposal, data collection. ● The work should be parallelizable. ○ Anything that can't be done in parallel should have been done in advance of the event.
  • 16. Forming teams ● Best teams have a mix of expertise ○ The more unconventional the mix, the more unique the paper/product/dataset will be. ● Avoid hierarchies ○ Ensure everyone has ownership of the project by encouraging their creative input. ● Projects topics can start vague ○ Scoping can be done later, based on the expertise available in the team. ○ But the aim needs to be specific from the start! ● Define a “halfway house” goal, and a designated person to tie-break conflicts.
  • 17. During the event ● Energy ○ Exhausted people make great hackers, but also poor scientists! ○ Provide space for physical and mental relaxation.. ● Focus ○ Choose a spot with minimal distractions. ○ Avoid the Bicycle Shed. ● Creativity ○ Keep the schedule breezy. ○ Put people who are “stuck” on new tasks. ○ Talks like this one are the doom for any #sciencehack!
  • 18. Following up ● Science Hackathons don't deliver final products → follow-ups are essential. ● If all of you put in sufficient material and creativity, the collaboration will drive itself. ● Don’t be afraid to ask for resources for follow-up meetings when you need them. ○ We once asked for £2200, got £5000….
