Join us in the Oceanhackweek 2018 to explore Data Science in Oceanography!

Please join us at the Oceanhackweek 2018, August 20-24, 2018, at the University of Washington, Seattle, in collaboration with the UW eScience Institute. This 5-day hands-on workshop is aimed at exploring, creating and promoting effective computation and analysis workflows for large and complex oceanographic data. The focus will be on data provided by the National Science Foundation’s Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI). Comparisons to other large-scale ocean observing assets, such as Argo, IOOS, etc. are welcome and encouraged.

Different from conventional conferences and workshops, the Oceanhackweek is constructed based on three core components: tutorials in data science methodologies such as data visualization and cloud computing, peer-learning, and on-site project work in a collaborative environment. We welcome all self-identified oceanographers at all career stages to apply, and hope you will join us in this exciting endeavor!

Travel and lodging grants are available for non-local accepted participants. Participants are expected to attend the entire workshop.

More information is available on: https://oceanhackweek.github.io/ 

To apply, please fill out the application by May 7, 2018. Accepted applicants will be notified no later than May 21, 2018.
