1st Annual Graduate Workshop on Environmental Data Analytics


July 28 – August 1, 2014


National Center for Atmospheric Research, Boulder CO.


Applications due March 17, 2014. Travel and lodging fellowships are available.

This workshop series is designed to help prepare the next generation of

researchers and practitioners to work within, and contribute to, the

data-rich era. Each workshop will bring together graduate students and

senior scientists in environmental statistics and related fields to explore

contemporary topics in applied environmental data modeling.


The workshop will consist of computing and modeling tutorials, presentations

from graduate student participants, and several invited talks from

established leaders in environmental data modeling. Tutorials and invited

talks will address useful ideas and tools directly applicable to student

participants' current and future research. To facilitate the exchange of

information and shared learning, student talks should focus on modeling or

computing challenges faced in their research.


Workshop participants will:


*Develop new modeling and computing skills through hands-on analyses and

lectures lead by quantitative scientists


*Share research findings and explore open questions within and at the

interface of environmental, ecological, climatic, and statistical sciences


*Learn about the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and

National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) data resources that can

facilitate scientific discovery


Workshop tutorials:


*Climate data analytics* -- Doug Nychka, Institute for Mathematics Applied

to Geosciences, NCAR.


*Bayesian statistics and Monte Carlo integration strategies* -- Jennifer

Hoeting, Department of Statistics, Colorado State University.


*Hierarchical models for massive spatio-temporal data analysis* -- Sudipto

Banerjee, Division of Biostatistics, University of Minnesota. Andrew Finley,

Department of Forestry, Michigan State University.

Funded by the National Science Foundation, Division of Emerging Frontiers

and the National Center for Atmospheric Research.
