Alyssa Goodman: 21-st Century Research: Tools, Trends, and Transformation, at Eliot House, Harvard University, Tuesday, April 10, 2012:

Abstract: 

By highlighting some new technologies and trends (such as WorldWide Telescope, the sharing of visualization and analysis techniques between seemingly disparate fields like Astronomy and Medicine, and new online research, data-mining and collaboration tools), I will speculate on the transformation in the participation in and pace of research to come.
(This was a "live" interactive presentation requested by members of ...

Alyssa Goodman: Seeing Science: Data Visualization in Modern Research and Teaching, at Paris, France , Wednesday, November 9, 2011:

This talk was delivered at the Harvard Business School's European Research Centre, to the members of the Harvard Club of France, and their guests.

ABSTRACT: Long ago, data visualization was  niche art, practiced only by those deeply committed to the power of visual communication.  Today, though, with the increasing volumes of data available not only to scientists, but to all, there is  rapidly increasing interest--and capability--in the visual exploration and explanation of data.  In this talk, Goodman will bring some of what she teaches...

Alyssa Goodman: To Tech or Not to Tech? (Solutions for Scientists: Modern Software Tools that Facilitate Research), at Oxford University, Tuesday, September 13, 2011:

tumblr post about this talk: I’m off to Oxford for a meeting on “Future Science Leadership.”  I’ve been asked to give a talk there called “Solutions for scientists: modern software tools that facilitate research.” To put my money where my mouth is, I thought I should not leave only my presentation slides online, but instead create a web site where the helpful software listing I...

Alyssa Goodman: Seamless Astronomy: 
How astronomers share, explore & discover, at Sage Bionetworks Commons Congress, Saturday, April 16, 2011:

This talk was delivered to the Sage Bionetworks Commons Congress by Alyssa Goodman in April, 2011.  The goal was to very briefly explain the "Seamless Astronomy" approach to the group building up the "Sage" Commons.  The Sage Commons will be a "revolutionary accessible information platform to define the molecular basis of disease and guide the development of effective human therapeutics and diagnostics."

Alberto Pepe: Astroinformatics: Linking scientific data and publications, at University of California, Los Angeles, Thursday, March 3, 2011:

Presented by Alberto Pepe at the University of California, Los Angeles.

Abstract: Astronomers produce and peruse vast amounts of scientific data. Making these data publicly available is important to enable both reproducible research and long term data curation and preservation. While an infrastructure is in place to make astronomical data available online, the linkages between these data and related scholarly publications are rarely published, due to the lack of a widely adopted standard mechanism for scientific data citation. Yet, many scientists currently cite data by...
