The success of the inaugural Brisbane Research Bazaar earlier this month took even its organisers by surprise.
The Research Bazaar (usually shortened to ResBaz) quickly turned into ResBuzz as its 180 attendees embraced everything this research festival had to offer. The event hashtag #resbazbris even trended on Twitter.
Held at QUT’s Gardens Point campus, the event (1–3 February) offered Software Carpentry workshops in Python and R, a Library Carpentry session, key stories, lightning talks, a digital poster session and a Knowledge Bazaar where people exchanged information about tools and skills.
Most attendees were RHD students and came from as far afield as Darwin and Lismore.
UQ key story speakers Assoc. Prof. Lachlan Coin (who said ResBaz was “an amazing event to be a part of”) talked about open peer review while Dr Maggie Hardy spoke about using social media for research communication.
