Socio-Environmental Synthesis involves bringing together existing data, methods, and tools from different disciplines, which can sometimes present challenges. The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center's (SESYNC's) cyberinfrastructure program provides the human and computing resources needed to overcome these challenges.
SESYNC invites applications for a four-day short course on data and software skills for socio-environmental synthesis. The fourth annual Summer Institute will be held July 18-21 at SESYNC in Annapolis, Maryland. The short course will combine lectures, hands-on computer labs, and project consultation designed to accelerate the adoption of cyber resources for all phases of data-driven research and dissemination.
Through this short course, participants should expect to:
- learn new scientific computing skills
- overcome project hurdles
- gain coding confidence
- have fun
Programming Basics (Optional Fifth-Day)
Participants with no scientific computing experience will be encouraged to arrive on Monday, July 17 for beginner lessons introducing the R programming language.
Apply by April 25!
