General Information about SIPS 2017

The meeting will be action oriented and there are multiple tracks of activities that should facilitate that:

Training sessions: Training sessions from 30 minutes to 3 hours for improving skills with software, methodologies, or statistics.  Most training sessions are pre-selected from proposals, with some room for spontaneous training in the schedule.

Hack-a-thons: One hour to three day events to collaborate on starting or completing defined projects such as preparing a methods syllabus.  Contributors can drop-in and out of hack-a-thons.  Most at the beginning are preselected, and there is room for spontaneous hack projects to form out of unconference format.

Lightning talks: Ten 5-minute presentations in one hour of ideas and active projects.  Most lightning talks are arranged during the meeting.

Unconference: Self-organized sessions that start at the meeting.  Prior to the meeting, attendees will be encouraged to identify topics of interest as fodder for the unconference.  At the opening session, participants will generate topics and fill an open schedule with their meeting topics (1 hour sessions).  Day 2 will be filled at the end of Day 1, and Day 3 will be filled at the end of Day 2.
