The Arctic Data Center invites applications for their 2018 Data Science Training for Arctic Research. This workshop will convene 13-17 August 2018 in Santa Barbara, California.

This five-day workshop will provide Arctic researchers with an overview of best practices in data management, training in data science tools, and concrete steps and methods for documenting and uploading data and metadata to the National Science Foundation's (NSF) Arctic Data Center.

Workshop topics will include:

  • Arctic Data Center and NSF Standards and Policies;
  • Data management plans;
  • Effective data management for data preservation, including storing and preparing data in open source formats, stability, longevity, interoperability, and metadata;
  • Publishing data at the Arctic Data Center, including web-based submission and automating submission for large data sets;
  • Data and metadata quality; and
  • Provenance for data and software.

Space for this workshop is limited. Early career and established researchers from the Arctic research community are encouraged to apply.

Applicants must complete the online application form. The application form requests basic demographics in addition to a two-page curriculum vitae and information about research background and data science training and skills. Preference will be given to applicants who perform NSF-funded Arctic research.
