Open Science and Sustainable Software for Data-driven Discovery
Cambridge Centre for Data-Driven Discovery (C2D3) and British Antarctic Survey (BAS) invite participants to the Open Science and Sustainable Software for Data-driven Discovery workshop.
This in-person one-day workshop will explore the topics of reproducible data science, ethical data science, collaborative data science, The Turing Way, trustworthy AI, and transparency. The day will give you the opportunity to meet peers with similar experiences to you own and build your research support network.
The morning session will start with a presentation on the importance and benefits of openness and sustainability, followed by guidance on online resources and local support available to participants. We will round off the morning with hands-on laptop exercises, where the workshop tutors will be available to help you through the tasks.
The afternoon session will start with a panel discussion with speakers from different disciplines. We will discuss how the speakers use open science and sustainable software in their research. We will then hear about real-world uses cases from three speakers. The afternoon will have plenty of opportunity to engage with the speakers.
We will finish the day with a drink reception!
This is an introductory workshop suited to participants with little or no experience with the topics covered, or as a refresher workshop for more experienced participants.
Participants should bring their laptop for the hands-on exercises.
