Moving pictures

Back in March I attended the SSI Collaborations Workshop up in Edinburgh. I used to attend these events when OMII-UK organised them and they were always enjoyable and productive meetings. I wrote up my thoughts and activities on the 2 day event in the blog here (day 1) and here (day 2).

If you are interested in finding out more about these meetings such as who attends, how it works and what is discussed then you are in luck. The SSI has just released the videos of the report back sessions onto their YouTube channel. Unlike the usual "death by PowerPoint" these videos show discussion group members reporting back on the issues that their group discussed and the actions their group decided upon. The presentations from the report back sessions are on average about 2-3 mins long thanks to strick timekeeping by the conference chairs. Short and to the point!

SSI have also recently released a list of outcomes from the meeting which they are working on over the forthcoming months.
