Free workshops and a mini-symposium on use of open science tools in ecological and evolutionary research for ecologists, evolutionary biologists and interested data scientists

 

Open science has become a scientific mainstream. A substantial intellectual and financial input has been invested into developing e-infrastructures, services, and tools that enable open science, including open data, open source (code) and open access to publications. Current uptake of these elements in ecology and evolution is slow, yet these fields can greatly benefit from the implementation of already developed tools and services.

The workshops are led by specialists from different biological, life science, and information science disciplines and cover a range of topics: reproducible analysis, data carpentry, archiving and sharing of software and algorithms,the use of available open science tools and services and more. The mini-symposium and workshops are freely admissible and especially the workshops are very well suited for PhD- and postdoctoral researchers.
