From wiki page:
> This informal, hands-on workshop will focus on finding and re-using
open scientific resources - including open and public domain data, open
access journal articles, and open educational materials. We will look at
existing tools for discovering open material, metadata standards for
relevant material in different domains, and how researchers go about
looking for the material they need.
> In addition to focused discussions about legal and technological
aspects of re-use, open scientific resources will be documented and
tagged on CKAN, a registry of knowledge resources.
