We’re extremely pleased to be able to offer two workshops in March 2018 at NCEAS. The second is CRESCYNT Data Science for Coral Reefs Workshop 2: Data Modeling, Data Integration and Team Science. Apply here.
When: March 12-15, 2018
Where: NCEAS, Santa Barbara, CA
This workshop is recommended for early to mid-career and senior scientists with interest in applying technical skills to collaborative research questions and committed to subsequently sharing what they learn. Participants will learn how to structure and combine heterogeneous data sets relevant to coral reef scientists in a collaborative way. Topics covered on days 1 and 2 of the workshop will cover reproducible workflows using R/RStudio and RMarkdown, collaborative coding with GitHub, strategies for team research, data modeling and data wrangling, and advanced data integration and visualization tools. Participants will also spend 2 days working in small teams to integrate various coral reef datasets to practice the skills learned and develop workflows for data tidying and integration.
The workshop is limited to 20 participants. We encourage you to apply via this form. Workshop costs will be covered with support from NSF EarthCube – CRESCYNT RCN. We anticipate widely sharing workshop outcomes, including workflows and recommendations. Anticipate some significant pre-workshop prep effort.
