Nano Sessions

The Nano Sessions connect the people who are interested in nanopublications and who want to learn from each other about the related technologies. Every session consists of two 10-minute talks, discussion, and a news sharing part. See the description for more information.

Knowledge Pixels hosts the first meetings, but we are happy to let others join and become hosts too. Do you want to share some insights, a problem you can’t solve, or a use case you are working on? Send an email to get a slot in an upcoming session.

Important Links:

  • All sessions are in this Zoom channel. Anyone can join without registration.
  • We use these notes during the sessions and for the record.
  • The meetings are open to everyone and invitations are sent out via our mailing list.

Upcoming sessions: 13 June, 11 July. Summer break afterwards.
