New Summer 2014 Training Workshop

 

Open Science for Synthesis

Software Skills for Early Career Scientists

July 21 - August 8, 2014

Santa Barbara, CA and Chapel Hill, NC

 

 

Open Science for Synthesis is a unique bi-coastal training offered for early career scientists who want to learn new software and technology skills needed for open, collaborative, and reproducible synthesis research. UC Santa Barbara’s NCEAS and University of North Carolina’s Renaissance Computing Institute (RENCI) will co-lead this three-week intensive training workshop with participants in both Santa Barbara, CA and Chapel Hill, NC.

 

Participants will receive hands-on guided experience using best practices in the technical aspects that underlie successful open science and synthesis – from data discovery and integration to analysis and visualization, and special techniques for collaborative scientific research, including virtual collaboration over the internet.

 

The training weaves together several core themes via a mixture of instructive lectures, discussions, and exercises; these themes are further reinforced – and injected into the real-time synthetic scientific research process – through daily work on group synthesis projects. Core themes will address:

 

Collaboration modes and technologies, virtual collaboration

Data management, preservation, and sharing

Data manipulation, integration, and exploration

Scientific workflows and reproducible research

Agile and sustainable software practices

Data analysis and modeling

Communicating results to broad communities

 

How to Apply

 

Applicants should be early-career researchers – here defined as students in the final stages of graduate work or researchers within 5 years post-Ph.D. We will consider applications from any country. Applications are now available online in the How to Apply section of the training site. The application requests biographical information and a series of skill assessment questions.

 

Applications must be received no later than 5 PM PST on April 7, 2014.

 

More Information on the Open Science for Synthesis training.

 

 

The training is sponsored by the Institute for Sustainable Earth and Environmental Software (ISEES) and the Water Science Software Institute (WSSI), both of which are conceptualizing an institute for sustainable scientific software. The Open Science for Synthesis workshop collaboration was born out of a shared mission and derived from NCEAS’ successful Summer Institute 2013.
