DataONE is sponsoring a Data Management Short Course for junior researchers based on content from the DataONE education modules and the Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP) short course materials. The goal of the short course is to encourage data literacy in junior researchers, to pilot the DataONE and ESIP teaching materials in a short course environment and to gain feedback from students on course content.
DataONE, LTER and NCEAS are co-sponsoring a workshop on 'Software Tools for Sensor Networks'. The goal of the workshop, to be held in Albuquerque May 1st - 4th is to promote best practices for sensor management and provide hands-on training in the use of existing tools and common software. The workshop is designed to introduce several options for managing streaming sensor data, discuss requirements for sensor data management systems and best practices in quality assurance and quality... read more
