Increasing capacity for data-intensive research in environmental biology

Principal Investigators:

Frank W. Davis, Stephanie E. Hampton, and Matthew B. Jones

This workshop will convene leaders in environmental biology research and education to collectively design a way forward for the scientific community to broadly improve skills necessary for data-intensive science. In August 2013, a steering committee of 6 individuals will caucus remotely to produce a list of 20 invitees, and draft an agenda and manuscript outline. In January 2014, approximately 20 individuals will meet for 2 days at the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis (NCEAS) to identify current inadequacies in training at all... more
