Proposal for open science session at Pacific Symposium on Biocomputing

Friday is the deadline to submit letters of support for Shirley Wu's proposed Open Science session at the Pacific Symposium on Biocomputing. (Thanks to Bill Hooker.)
One thing that would really help outside of the proposal itself is to have actual letters of support. That way the organizers will know there is serious interest and commitment for a session on Open Science - it's a gamble for them, frankly, but much less of one if there is a good crowd on board.

So if you would like to support this proposal and are willing to commit to participating should it get accepted, please send me an email to that effect (with as many details of your anticipated participation as you can provide at this time), and I will include all the emails as "supplementary material" next Friday.
Update. The proposal was approved.
