NSF Cyber Carpentry: Data Life-Cycle Training
The emergence and continuing growth of “Big Data” has predicated many changes in the scientific community and the ways in which research is done. Science has become more collaborative, with research projects today often involving multi-disciplinary teams from across the state, country, or globe and ever-increasing quantities of data. As a result, many researchers find themselves needing to execute higher and higher levels of data integration and analysis.
The aim of the Cyber Carpentry workshop is to teach participants how to navigate this new digital research landscape. It will train attendees in all aspects of the data-intensive computing environment and, more importantly, offer a chance to work alongside other researchers with complementary expertise: Domain Scientists with Computer and Information Scientists.
This 2-week workshop will provide graduate students and researchers with an overview of best data management practices, data science tools and concrete steps and methods for performing end-to-end data intensive computing and data life-cycle management, and for promoting reproducible science and data reuse.
- Location: The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
- Dates: July 16 – 27, 2018
- Application Deadline: March 15, 2018, 5:00pm (PT)
Travel and accommodation will be provided for participants. A certificate of completion from the School of Information and Library Science at UNC will be awarded on successful completion of the two-week workshop.
Both doctoral students and post-doctoral fellows in basic sciences and computational sciences are encouraged to apply. Instructors will include investigators of the Datanet Federation Consortium (DFC) project, which ran between 2013 and 2017.
More information is available on the workshop website, including information on how to apply.
