Events: Materialvetenskap events at Chalmers University of TechnologyThu, 09 Aug 2018 14:21:44 +0200 at Chalmers – fill the gap between women and men on Wikipedia<p>Biblioteket, library building,</p><p>​On 29 August, the Ministry of Enterprise and Innovation, together with Chalmers University of Technology and Wikimedia Sweden, invites you to an equal writing workshop where we, in the context of #WikiGap, highlight women in research and innovation on Wikipedia. On-site is Minister for Enterprise and Innovation Mikael Damberg, Vice President of Chalmers Anna Dubois and a representative from Wikimedia Sweden.</p>​<img src="/SiteCollectionImages/Forskning/Main-logo-1-300x200.jpeg" class="chalmersPosition-FloatRight" alt="" style="margin:5px" />On Wikipedia today there are about four times as many articles about men as there are about women, and around 90 percent of all those who write on Wikipedia are men. But WikiGap makes a difference. So far, the initiative, which has been ongoing since 8 March 2018, has generated about 3,000 new articles and updates of information. <br />29 August is the time to raise remarkable and famous women in research and innovation and we hope you want to join us! <br /><br />It doesn't matter if you have been editing on Wikipedia before, since you will get support in both English and Swedish. You can write in English or your native language. Everyone is welcome as long as focus is on female scientists and innovators. Which female reesearcher/innovator do you miss on Wikipedia? If you don't have a list of your own, you will be given suggestions on women who lack an article and articles which are suitable to update or translate. There will also be librarians on site to help out with references.<br /><br />You need to bring your own computer. A Swedish &quot;fika&quot; will be provided during the afternoon. <br /><br />Date: August 29, 2018<br />Time: 12: 30-16: 00<br />Location: Chalmers library, campus Johanneberg.<br /><br /><strong>REGISTRATION</strong><br /><a href=""><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/images/icgen.gif" alt="" />Register to #WikiGap through this link.</a><br /><br /><strong>PHOTO STUDIO DURING WIKIGAP:</strong><br />We will fill the gap when it comes to uploaded images on Wikimedia Commons, which is Wikipedia's image database, too. Drop-in for female researchers, 12:30 to 3:00 PM, at the same location as the writing workshop.<br /><br /><br /> Nordic/Baltic School on neutron scattering<p></p><p>​Registration for the 2nd Nordic/Baltic Summer School in Neutron Scattering is open</p>​It is time for the 2nd Nordic/Baltic Summer School in Neutron Scattering. The event will be held in Tartu, Estonia 10-21 September 2018. As a prequel, on 8-9 September, there will be a school introduction with basic Mathematics and Physics for students outside the Physical Sciences. <br /><br />The school is targeted to Ph.D. students from the Nordic/Baltic countries. Registrations from M.Sc. students and post docs are <span>also accepted<span style="display:inline-block"></span></span>. From this year on, registrations from students from other countries are also accepted.<br /><br />For Nordic/Baltic participants, the school and accomodation is free of charge, and transportation will be re-imboursed.
