It’s almost time for the first PubSweet meeting of 2019, so we wanted to share a few details!
If you are wondering, What is a PubSweet meeting? The PubSweet Community includes all organizations who are developing platforms collaboratively, sharing Coko technology and methodology. This means that attendees of these meetings, which happen roughly once quarterly, are both technical and already developing against PubSweet. Pretty great! (For more detail, there’s a book about PubSweet – written by this tight knit group – using Editoria!)
This upcoming celebration of all things PubSweet takes place on March 7th and 8th at the European Bioinformatics Institute, which is located at the Wellcome Trust Genome Campus in Cambridge. Because this is a technical community of active PubSweet developers, it has a fixed attendee list, but if you are interested in learning more about these events, or about getting started with PubSweet, you should ping Adam. There are a few ways you can do this: here, here or here.
While these meetings are relaxed and fun, they do have really great coffee, delicious food, and a schedule. It’s subject to change, especially on day two, as we might jointly decide to focus only on certain topics.

Day 2, will take place in the Garden Room
Day 2 is all about open Sessions, and main topics include: Reusability (super mega main topic!), Shared Data Model (common ground for PubSweet applications to stand on, improvements to the BaseModel), What is a component? (types of components, best practices, standard structure), and Flexible workflows.
Other topics include: Hindawi QA Application and XSweet Libero Data Hub
Breakfast will be at 9 a.m., tea break at 11 a.m., and lunch at 1 p.m., followed by a second tea break at 3:30 p.m. Same as the first day! After all this, we’ll call it a day for Day 2. And we’ll each go our own merry way, full of new ideas!
We can’t wait to see you all soon! Also, stay tuned for meeting dates for additional Coko/PubSweet meetings in 2019!
