Research Data Winter School: 12–15 JUNE 2018, THE UNIVERSITY OF QUEENSLAND, BRISBANE
Supported by the Theo Murphy Initiative, the Australian Academy of Science, in?association with Committee on Data of the?International Council for Science?(CODATA)?and the Research Data Alliance (RDA), have?developed a Research Data Science Winter?School program that?aims to teach and refresh?some of the most relevant range of skills?relating to research data science for early-?and mid-career?researchers (EMCRs).?The winter school brings together 15 EMCRs?from different disciplines, 13 from Australia,?one from Indonesia and one from?Papua New?Guinea. During the four-day intensive program,?you will learn how to manage, curate, share and?use data that is?core to your research, acquire?basic programming and data analytic skills,?and learn key considerations associated with?research data by engaging with experienced?data scientists.?The Winter School is convened by Professor Jane Hunter, University of Queensland and member of the CODATA Executive Committee.?Dr Hugh Shanahan, co-chair of the CODATA-RDA Schools of Research Data Science initiative?and leading the development of a GO FAIR Implementation Network for Training?is the Opening Speaker.??Hugh has a deep background in?theoretical and computational physics, coupled?with a more recent move into computational?biology. He collaborates closely with?experimental biologists to develop an?understanding, at a molecular level, of how?organisms function. His specialties include?computational and theoretical Physics,?computational biology, protein-DNA?interactions, and cloud computing. He has been one of the driving forces behind the successful?CODATA-RDA Schools of Research Data Science initiative.?
