Thomson Reuters EndNote (an app for research management) is the first global sponsor of the upcoming Science Hack Day, in its fifth year. The San Francisco event is the largest of its kind. It is described by organizers as:

A global grassroots science movement dedicated to making science accessible for all and facilitating interdisciplinary collaboration...Science Hack Day participants will gather for 48 consecutive hours to participate in a fun competition to build the best scientific prototype.

As a global movement designed to connect individuals from a variety of disciplines and backgrounds, Science Hack Day has held more than 30 events in a dozen countries since its launch in 2010.

It will be held October 4-5, at GitHub HQ, 88 Colin P. Kelly Jr. Street, San Francisco, (2nd & Brannan). Here is the agenda.
