The workshop on Digital HPS at the History of Science Society 2013 meeting went off without a hitch! The workshop was organized by the international Digital HPS Consortium, and the ASU Digital Innovation Group. The objectives of the workshop were to expose HSS attendees to some of the cool things happening in the Digital HPS world, and to create an informal, friendly space where people interested in digital approaches can be inspired, discuss ideas, and get more information. Despite starting at 8:45pm, and competing with numerous parallel sessions, the room was packed! Read more to see pictures from the event.

9th Meeting of the Digital HPS Consortium: September 9 - 11, Cambridge, UK

On September 6-8, 2012, an international group of scholars, research librarians, and computer scientists convened for the 9th meeting of the Digital History and Philosophy of Science Consortium at the University of Cambridge. The conversation started nearly a decade ago, spurred by the rapid proliferation of digital and computational approaches within the History and Philosophy of Science (HPS) community. This year's meeting addressed the latest innovations within digital HPS, from open-access publishing, to global crowd-sourcing and computational approaches to textual analysis. Over the course of two and a half days, participants converged upon a set of intellectual and architectural goals for the digital HPS community, including a resolution toward open-access tool-sharing and strengthening of inter-institutional and interdisciplinary collaborations.

"What's New about Systems Biology?" September 15 - 16, Seattle, Washington

I was recently invited to an inter-disciplinary workshop held at the Institute of Systems Biology (ISB) in Seattle, where HPS scholars and scientists met to address the question: What’s new about ‘Systems Biology’? The workshop was organized by Arizona State University’s (ASU) Center for Biology and Society, in partnership with the ISB and the International Society for the History, Philosophy and Social Studies of Biology (ISHPSSB).
