Like Minded Meetups (Launch)

Like Minded Meetups (formerly known as Birds-of-a-Feather. We are keeping the picture!) provides space to join your colleagues to network and exchange ideas, insights, and experiences. Meet up with individuals who share professional and/or personal interests, or join small group discussions in Topia.  To participate, fill out the participant's survey, and based on your responses you will be connected with your individual matches via email.  Discussion groups will be announced on Slack and will meet up via Topia over the course of FSCI2021.
Look for the participant's survey just prior to the start of FSCI2021.

Random Network (Launch)

This networking event matches participants randomly to (hopefully) imitate the serendipitous encounters you might find at a meal or after a keynote during an in-person FSCI event. Participants will network one-on-one, in a medium that suits their needs. Sign up for one or both randomizations!
Look to the Community Events Page for further details.

Community Events Overview
In this schedule you'll see events as described below, all arranged and conducted by the FSCI community.  More details for each event below can be found on the Community Events Page, which will evolve in the weeks leading up to FSCI. 

Lightning Talks
Do you have a story to tell, or a successful technique to suggest to your colleagues? Are you passionate about a facet of scholarly communication that you don’t see in our curriculum? Do you have something to add to the dialogue that you feel is being overlooked? Then contribute a Lightning Talk, and spark some conversation. Held on Day 1 of FSCI, these talks help set the tone and foster connections among like-minded professionals in attendance.
The main rules are that your talk should: 1) make the audience think; 2) discuss something that could make an impact in scholarly communications, 3) be a maximum of five minutes; and 4) follow the FORCE11 Code of Conduct.
If you want to present a lightning talk, please submit a description of it at the link below. The submitted talks will be reviewed by a small committee for relevance, potential impact, and excitement, with preference given to those proposals that complement other parts of the FSCI program. Decisions will be announced ahead of FSCI, along with brief feedback.
Accepted lightning talks can be presented either without slides or with PDF slides. Slides will be required to be submitted by 9 AM on the day of the lightning talks, July 16, to give us time to assemble them into a single presentation to avoid delays in switching screen sharing. Each speaker will get up to 5 minutes to talk. Some related guidance on roughly similar talks is available from scidev.net.

Like-Minded Meetups 
Like-Minded Meetups (formerly known as Birds-of-a-Feather) provide space to join your colleagues to network and exchange ideas, insights, and experiences. Meet up with individuals who share professional and/or personal interests, or join small group discussions in Topia. To participate, fill out the participant's survey, and based on your responses you will be connected with your individual matches via email. Discussion groups will be announced on Slack and will meet up via Topia over the course of FSCI2021.
Look for the participant's survey just prior to the start of FSCI2021.

Fireside Cats! 
Sometimes you need a break from all this relentless professionalism, and you want some company as you unwind. During in-person FSCI, when disengaging from your coursework and grabbing a coffee or tea, you can naturally strike up a conversation with someone from across the world who just happened to approach the beverage table at the same moment. Every Fireside Cats! session is searching for that serendipity in a communal Do-nothing-a-thon of soothing vibes. So come, sit back in a relaxed environment, and chat with FSCI's coolest (and warmest) cats.
Join us, and bring your own cup of coffee, tea, or a nicely chilled prosecco. We have a variety of schedules to suit different time zones (and beverage preferences). We also have a variety of topics to start us off - but no syllabus, no action items, no agenda. Just conversation!

Random Network 
This networking program will give you the chance to meet new friends powered by the serendipitous magic of probability! All FSCI participants will be randomly separated into small groups at the beginning of FSCI. This is our effort to replicate casual, coincidental meet-ups in the hallways or in the cafeteria at in-person FSCI events. Once connected, you are encouraged to network within the small group via the platform of your choice (e.g., Topia, Slack, email, Zoom, etc).

FSCI2021 Challenge: Collaborating to Counter Misinformation 
The past year of the COVID-19 pandemic shed another spotlight on the urgent crisis of disinformation to the society. As the community of scholarly communication, many of us have asked how we can help counter disinformation that is harmful to society. During the FSCI2021, we want to challenge the community to crowdsource ideas and resources to counter disinformation. We will use a Google doc to collect information and ideas throughout the summer and everyone is invited to join the challenge. No contribution is too small! We will curate and publish the final outcome of this challenge in a public repository and share it with the public. This challenge will be launched at the opening plenary of the 2021 FSCI and will continue throughout the institute. All FSCI participants (instructors, students, organizers, and general attendees) are invited to contribute. All contributors will be acknowledged in the final document. The Google doc will remain open for comment until August 31, 2021. A group of volunteers will curate the ideas and resources from all contributions and disseminate the final product.

BattleDecks!!
You will not want to miss this night. Everyone is invited to take part in BattleDecks (a.k.a. PowerPoint karaoke)—Virtual Edition! How are your improv skills? Ready to perform in front of a live audience? Each contestant will be given 3-5 minutes to present, speaking over ten slides you have never seen, with the goal of telling a coherent story while (a) entertaining the audience and (b) keeping a straight face. An in-person FSCI favorite, we’re dying to see how this plays out via Zoom.

Chair/Moderator: Tom Olijhoek, Editor in Chief, DOAJ
Moderator: Yuhan (Douglas) Rao , CISESS/NCICS/NCSU , Postdoctoral Research Scholar

This session will consist of reviewed 5-minute talks by FSCI participants. These short talks are meant to present something the speaker is passionate about, related to scholarly communications. Talks may be about new technology that might change our lives or vanish without a trace, tell us about a policy that has made a difference somewhere, inspirational rants about how the scholarly communications world should be, and other topics. The talks will inspire us to think and to discuss things that make an impact on scholarly communications

Fireside Cats! Pandemic hobbies
Last year, the stores ran out of yeast because everyone was baking bread at home. Some mastered sourdough, while others perfected their homemade pasta. What activities did you take on to overcome the dullness of the lockdown? From gardening projects to mural painting, from metalsmithing to taxidermy, come share the new activities that you enjoyed during the past year. Share ideas and inspire others!
