NSF Cyber Carpentry: Data Life-Cycle Training

NSF Logo

Emerging cyber-infrastructure solutions necessitate addressing the needs of domain scientists from multiple angles, including data access, metadata management, large-scale analytics and workflows, data and application discovery and sharing, and data preservation. The Cyber Carpentry workshop aims to make it easier for trainees to learn all aspects of data-intensive computing environment and more importantly to work together with other researchers with complementary expertise – pairing domain scientists with computer and information scientists.

This two-week workshop will provide 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 and for promoting reproducible science and data reuse. The workshop will be held at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill from July 15th to 26th 2019.  

This workshop is aimed at doctoral students and pos-doctoral fellows in all disciplines. Travel and accommodation will be provided, and students will receive a certificate of completion from the UNC School of Information and Library Science on successful completion of the workshop.
