Joining the Summer Institute Group
This page will help you accept your invitation to join the 2016 SI on Quantitative Biology.
How do groups work?
The QUBESHub is organized around "groups" or online communities that have access to a wide range of collaboration and productivity tools. Some groups have open membership meaning that anyone can join the group. See our list of Partner Projects for information about some of the open groups on QUBESHub. Other groups are closed or require you to request membership. The group managers have a lot of control over which parts of the group are visible to non-members. The goal is to share enough information about the group so that you can see what is going on but give the members enough privacy that they can have a productive collaborative work space.
The 2016 Quantitative Biology Summer Institute Group will have some open areas like the schedule and overview page where people visiting the site can learn more about the meeting. Much of the work space however will be restricted to the meeting participants. As we develop resources to share they will be made accessible in a public area for others to adopt and adapt.
Why do I need to join the group?
If you have received an invitation to participate in the meeting you need to join the group in order to access the entire group space. We are asking you to create a QUBES account and then request membership in the SI group as a way to formalize you acceptance of the meeting invitation. We will begin using the SI group collaborative tools in the next couple of weeks to prepare for the meeting.
