*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;



§ visualizing and disseminating results.




SESYNC will cover eligible travel expenses, such as airfare and

accommodations, for all participants.
