Event description


Berlin Community Meeting

This is a combined community meet-up for the Annotating All Knowledge Coalition, Collaborative Knowledge Foundation (Coko), and friends.

The goal of this meeting:

  • Imagine an ecosystem of open and shared infrastructure that could transform communication
  • Coko (with existing and new collaborators) will present projects in an informal set of talks with breakouts and group discussion to follow
  • AAK (with existing and new collaborators) will discuss making annotations FAIR: Supporting Researcher Workflow Through Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable Data Principles
  • We will have time to explore each other's projects and understand community goals/needs/use cases


9:00-9:30 - Coffee & light breakfast

9:30-9:45 - Our vision for open and shared infrastructure and broad community goals (Coko and

12:30-1:30 - Lunch and Product Showcase
During Lunch there will have informal demos from AAK coalition members (SciLite, Hypothesis/SciBot, Pundit, Xpansa, PaperHive, eLife, Profeza) and others that would like to participate

1:30-3:00 - Dedicated breakout groups/tracks:
Track 1. Coko platforms and use cases (books, journals, data)
Track 2. FAIR Annotations/Use cases (SciBot, Crossref, Pundit, Europe PMC)
Track 3. Open Tables: open workspace for developers/others to collaborate on projects/ideas (sponsored by Europe PMC)

3:00-3:30 - Afternoon break

3:30-4:15 Show-and-tell.

4:15-5:00 - More fluid breakout groups and time to improvise. After the day, we created discussions around:
Track 1. Annotation workflows. How annotations fit into editors, platforms, etc?
Track 2. Sustainabilty. How do we build long lasting business models?
Track 3. Tech Community. As technologists, how do we use other open source platforms?

5:00-5:30pm - Wrap up

Evening reception

We are also planning an evening reception to follow – Amano Bar. Location: Auguststraße 43, 10119 Berlin, Germany Here are Walking Directions from Kalkscheune to Amano


Organized by Coko Foundation and Hypothesis with support from Europe PMC, ContentMine, PaperHive, and Pundit.

By meeting in person to discuss shared goals, we aim to open lines of communication between our existing projects and to continue to lay the foundation for a productive community towards our shared vision: a robust, open source ecosystem of interoperable, complementary tools for research and communication.

Organizer Coko Foundation, AAK Coalition, & Friends

Organizer of Open Source Bazaar: Berlin 2017 Meeting

Coko Foundation

Collaborative Knowledge Foundation (Coko) is building an open source technology and service ecosystem to improve the speed, reproducibility, and open accessibility of research. Coko’s community projects move research communication beyond legacy print-based workflows and enable publication of research at its earliest stages, including data, scientific posters, micropublications and preprints. 

Annotating All Knowledge

Annotating All Knowledge (AAK) is a coalition of some of the world’s key scholarly publishers, platforms, libraries, educational institutions, and technology organizations are coming together to create an open, interoperable annotation layer over their content.

Europe PMC 

Europe PMC is a repository, providing access to worldwide life sciences articles, books, patents and clinical guidelines. Europe PMC provides links to relevant records in databases such as Uniprot, European Nucleotide Archive (ENA), Protein Data Bank Europe (PDBE) and BioStudies.


ContentMine provides open source software to download and analyse papers en masse, helping you filter by many custom criteria and feed the data into your preferred analysis and visualisation workflows.


PaperHive introduces seamless discussion of research papers directly in the browser, embedded in the regular workflow. This enables researchers to attach questions, corrections, formulas, figures, further literature, code, or data directly to the original text where everyone can benefit from it.


Pundit is a web application that allows users to annotate web pages. Compared to others annotations tool Pundit is a bit “special” since it allows to create semantic annotations.
