Workshop on Scholarly Markdown in San Francisco

May 21, 2013, [MD]

At Beyond the PDF 2 in Amsterdam, the organizers announced a round of microgrants and asked us to use the hashtag #1k to apply for them. Inspired by Martin Fenner's blog post, and my own experiments with scholarly authoring, I posted the following:

After a vote, this "project" was chosen as one of the winners. Martin Fenner graciously agreed to co-organize it with me, and 8th of June we're organizing a workshop/meeting/unconference/hackathon on Scholarly Markdown in San Francisco. Sign up on Eventbrite, and add your information to the wiki. We're also using the wiki to collect ideas (we'd love to hear from you even if you can't make it in person!).

Here's the description from the Eventbrite page:

Please join us for a full day of presentations, discussions and coding around Markdown for scholarly content. Some of the potential outcomes of the workshop include: notes from discussion about the suitability of Markdown for scientific authoring (different stages, disciplines, etc)

The event is supported by a 1K Force11 Challenge prize.

Please add your background and ideas to the wiki. And please contact the organizers @houshuang and @mfenner if you want to give a presentation or demo.*
