Summer Computational Institute @ SESYNC


Recommended Posts

*Summer Computational Institute 2014*

 

National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC)

 

Annapolis, Maryland

 

July 7–11, 2014

 

 

 

Research into the complex problems of human–environment interactions

requires managing, analyzing, and visualizing large and/or diverse data

sets. In addition, performing these tasks is increasingly a team effort,

requiring collaborative work in virtual environments.

 

 

 

The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC), funded by a

National Science Foundation grant to the University of Maryland, invites

applications from small teams of researchers for a one-week Computational

Institute on conducting data-driven, socio-environmental synthesis

research. The workshop will offer participants hands-on training in

managing the lifecycle of their data and code with a focus on using open

source tools, including R. Topics will include, but are not limited to:

 

 

 

§ best practices and techniques for collaborative code development;

 

§ developing and testing code for data management, modeling, and analysis;

and

 

§ visualizing and disseminating results.

 

 

 

SESYNC will cover eligible travel expenses, such as airfare and

accommodations, for all participants.
