Come join us for our last Montreal meetup of the season.

After the presentations, we will be heading to Benelux, so we can share a drink or two together, so we can welcome the summer!

If you want to give a lightning talk (5 minutes presentation), you can still submit it. Send us an email to or send ping us on the channel #talks in the Montreal-Python Slack

Alberto Pepe - 21st-century research, 17th-century publishing

Researchers spend their days doing cutting-edge work. But when it comes time to writing, publishing, and disseminating their work, they’re often still using models and tools that haven’t changed much in decades, if not centuries. Research does not advance through isolated scientific results, but through the publication and dissemination thereof. Scientists get recognition through citation and reputation. Open Science is the philosophical view that sharing benefits scientific research and, hence, that barriers to sharing ideas and methods should be lowered as much as possible. The practice of Open Science addresses the question of how to lower these barriers---whether cultural, systemic, methodological or technical. Authorea is a new collaborative, web-based platform that lowers these barriers via a technological solution for writing, editing and publishing that covers the research cycle from writing a first draft, through to submission and publication. Authorea lets you integrate data, code, and all the materials needed to reproduce scientific results in your papers. This lowers the technical barrier to sharing, paving the way for transparency and reproducibility---the very foundations of the scientific method. Authorea also supports the creation of mixed-format documents including LaTeX, markdown, and rich text. Authorea can propel the scientific paper into the 21st century! It is now in use at each of the top 100 research universities worldwide, across a diverse set of fields ranging from astrophysics to zoology.

Alberto Pepe is the co-founder of Authorea. He recently finished a Postdoctorate in Astrophysics at Harvard University.
