The CODATA-RDA Research Data Science Summer School and Research Data Science Advanced Workshops will run at the International Centre for Theoretical Physics, Trieste, Italy, in August 2018.
The CODATA-RDA Research Data Science Summer School provides training in the foundational skills of Research Data Science. Contemporary research – particularly when addressing the most significant, transdisciplinary research challenges – cannot be done effectively without a range of skills relating to data. This includes the principles and practice of Open Science and research data management and curation, the use of a range of data platforms and infrastructures, large scale analysis, statistics, visualisation and modelling techniques, software development and annotation and more. We define ‘Research Data Science’ as the ensemble of these skills.
Four CODATA-RDA Research Data Science Advanced Workshops will run in parallel:
- Workshop on Extreme sources of data
- Workshop on Bioinformatics
- Workshop on IoT/Big Data Analytics
- Workshop on Climate Data Science

There is no registration fee for these events. Some support for travel and accommodation is available and its allocation will be determined during the selection process. Much of this funding is intended for participants from lower and middle income countries. Potential participants have the opportunity to indicate they need support in the application. Self-funded participants are welcome. All applicants are strongly encouraged to look for alternative ‘third-party’ sources of funding to support their participation.
Deadline for applications: May 21, 2018
