SFU Library's Research Commons Research Bazaar

January 13, 2016

Research Bazaar, or #ResBaz, started last year in Melbourne, Australia, and is going global for 2016. The events aim "to equip researchers from all career stages with the digital skills and tools required to do their research better, faster, and smarter. A unique blend of academic and social life, ResBaz is an event unlike any academic conference you've ever been to." 

The Research Bazaar is a worldwide festival promoting the digital literacy emerging at the center of modern research.  From February 1-3, 2016 at the Burnaby campus, the SFU Library's Research Commons and Software Carpentry join forces to host workshops and events that allow researchers to gain skills and connect with one another.

The full program and information about the many people involved in this event are on the SFU Research Bazaar webpages

Python, R, LaTex, GitHub, Data Visualization, Research Communication, GIS, Data Management, Text Scraping, Social Media, Qualitative Data Analysis Software and more! 


SFU's Research Bazaar acknowledges the generous support of the Office of Graduate Studies and Postdoctoral Fellows and the Office of the Vice-President, Research.
