Active weekend discussing research in Edinburgh!

Altmetrics, publishing data, being open and learning styles were all discussed at ReCon this year! The conference was a huge success and we were even trending (#ReCon_15) on Twitter in the UK and Germany for the majority of the morning!

Projects included citizen science for spotting animals, an automatic infographic generator and geotagging research.
