PANGAEA - Data Publisher for Earth & Environmental Science is delighted to invite you to the next edition of our “PANGAEA Community Workshop” series. The series includes user-oriented theoretical and practical trainings on the services offered by PANGAEA and various aspects of modern research data management, with special emphasis on sustainable publication and long-term archival of scientific data, including various methods to access and re-use those valuable resources.
In focus this time: "Finding and retrieving data from PANGAEA"
When: 02. and 03. of June 2022, both 10am - 12am CEST (UTC+2) (breaks included)
Where: Online (via Zoom - you find the pre-registration link below)
What: This two-day, four-hour workshop focuses on finding and using datasets already published on PANGAEA, and gives an in-depth introduction to various methods of systematically finding desired datasets for one’s particular task and making them available for further use and analysis. In a combination of theoretical units and practical exercises, the topics covered are given sufficient room to allow participants to gain a lasting understanding of how to make good use of the PANGAEA data stock.
How: Since the practical exercises can only be supervised effectively if the number of participants is not too large, we have to limit the number of active participants to 20 for the practical elements of the workshop. Participants beyond this limit are welcome to follow the exercises as spectators (and e.g. do them for themselves), but will not be able to interact with the lecturers during that time, unfortunately.
You can indicate your interest in actively participating in the exercises by selecting the appropriate option during pre-registration. Available slots will be allocated on a first come first serve basis. In case registered participants drop out, we will allocate free slots on the spot in the order of registration.
Interested? Please fill this brief pre-registration form and we will send you further details including the agenda and access links to the event later.
The event will be held in English and via the video conferencing tool Zoom. Theoretical units are planned to be recorded for those not able to participate. During the event, you will be informed well in advance of when the recordings will take place, so that you can make desired arrangements, if necessary.
