*Free Webinar on "Using e-Infrastructures for Biodiversity
Conservation", 30 May 2017 @11 am CEST*
An e-Infrastructure is a distributed network of service nodes, residing
on multiple sites and managed by one or more organizations.
E-Infrastructures allow scientists residing at distant places to
collaborate. They offer a multiplicity of facilities as-a-service,
supporting data sharing and usage at different levels of abstraction,
e.g. data transfer, data harmonization, data processing workflows etc.
*e-Infrastructures are gaining an important place in the field of
biodiversity conservation*. Their computational capabilities help
scientists to *reuse models, obtain results in shorter time and share
these results with other colleagues*. They are also used to access
several and heterogeneous biodiversity catalogues. This webinar will
focus on how the BlueBRIDGE
e-Infrastructure and Virtual Research Environments can enable data
sharing and experiments reproducibility and repeatability in the
biodiverisity conservation field. Examples of tools that can be adopted
by the audience will be also showcased.
Webinar contents in brief:
* e-Infrastructures and Virtual Research Environments
* Geospatial data visualization and representation
* Statistical models for species distribution modelling
* Accessing large heterogeneous biodiversity data catalogues
* Signal processing of biodiversity-related observations
* Machine Learning applied to species observation records
* Lexical search in large taxonomic trees
* Cloud computing applied to biodiversity analyses
