NSF Cyber Carpentry Workshop application deadline extended to April 15

March 27, 2019

The application deadline for the NSF Cyber Carpentry Workshop: Data Lifecycle Training has been extended to April 15, 2019.

The workshop will take place July 15-26, 2019 at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Travel and accommodations will be provided for accepted participants, and a certificate of completion from the UNC School of Information and Library Science (SILS) will be awarded at the end of the training. Women, applicants from underrepresented groups, and persons with disabilities are especially encouraged to apply.

The two-week summer training program, hosted by the UNC School of Information and Library Science (SILS) and funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), aims to provide doctoral and post-doctoral 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.

In the past, the workshop has familiarized participants with the concepts of virtualization, automation, and federation as defined through the Datanet Federation Consortium (DFC), an NSF-funded project that promotes sharing within and across science and engineering disciplines. Instructors introduced specific DFC web portals, including CyVerse, Dataverse, DataONE, and Hydroshare, as well as relevant software, meta-data management strategies, and large-scale workflows. Many students also arrived early each day for “breakfast carpentry,” an open topic discussion with CyVerse Software Engineer Julian Pistorius.
