The National Sleep Research Resource is organizing a meeting with a group of Early Adopters to be held on October 9th, 2015 in Boston, MA, USA. We identify Early Adopters as members of the scientific community who have obtained access to the data on the repository and are employing those data for their scientific research. Also, we would like to welcome any potential new users of the datasets, who may be interested in using NSRR data for their studies. The purpose of this one-day meeting is to bring together a group of “hands on” participants to promote active interaction and collaboration and to provide feedback to improve the value of the NSRR.
Participants in the meeting will have the opportunity to present research in progress using NSRR data, or planned research using NSRR data, report technical bugs, signal anomalies and issues, to highlight tools they want to share, and to interact with the rest of the NSRR community to promote new ideas and identify opportunities for collaboration in the field of sleep research. This is an exciting opportunity to get to know other NSRR users and the NSRR team, and to discuss the latest updates regarding data and tools in the repository. Please also share this invitation with your colleagues, especially trainees and early investigators.
We invite you to complete the application form so we can identify an initial group of individuals who will provide representation of a range of relevant interests and skills. For those who accept the invitation to attend, the NSRR will cover the cost of economy roundtrip airfare to Boston and one night of hotel accommodation. Note that this will be the first of what we hope will be an annual meeting, so even if you do not attend this meeting, we hope you or your colleagues may be interested in future meetings.
