The CODATA-RDA Research Data Science Summer School and Research Data
Science Advanced Workshops will run for their fourth and third year
respectively at the International Centre for Theoretical Physics, Trieste,

*The CODATA-RDA Research Data Science Summer School will take place on 5-16
August 2019.  Apply here!
<https://e-applications.ictp.it/applicant/login/3317>**Deadline: 18/04/2019*

This school provides Early Career Researchers (at MSc-level to 3 years
after their PhD) and Professionals (who register via ITU Academy) with the
necessary set of foundational Data Science skills to enable them to analyse
their data in an efficient and effective manner for the 21st century.

The material covered here is fundamental to all areas of Data Science and
hence open to researchers from all disciplines that deal with significant
amounts of data. The focus is to provide a practical introduction to these
topics with extensive labs and seminars.

   - Open Science
   - Introduction to Unix Shell
   - Programming for Analysis
   - Git
   - Research Data Management
   - Author Carpentry
   - Data Visualisation
   - Information Security
   - Machine Learning
   - Computational Infrastructures

Individuals with a background in High Energy/Particle Physics, IoT/Big-Data
Analytics, Bioinformatics and Climate Data Sciences can apply to one
of the *Advanced
workshops*  <http://indico.ictp.it/event/8847/>that run immediately after
the school.

For more information from the ICTP site go to:


   - A limited number of grants are available to support the attendance of
   selected participants from developing countries.
   - Professionals and corporate entities must register and apply via the
   ITU Academy platform.


*About the CODATA-RDA Research Data Science Summer School, 5-16 August 2019*
The CODATA-RDA Research Data Science Summer School provides training in the
foundational skills of Research Data Science.  Contemporary research –
particularly when addressing the most significant, transdisciplinary
research challenges – cannot be done effectively without a range of skills
relating to data. This includes the principles and practice of Open Science
and research data management and curation, the use of a range of data
platforms and infrastructures, large scale analysis, statistics,
visualisation and modelling techniques, software development and annotation
and more. We define ‘Research Data Science’ as the ensemble of these skills.

Find out more about the schools *here
you will find links to information about past schools in 2016, 2017 and
2018 held in Trieste and São Paulo.  Watch a video about the Schools of
Research Data Science *here <https://vimeo.com/232209813>*

The School of Research Data Science has enjoyed a remarkable success and
clearly responds to a burning need for data skills among Early Career
Researchers and others involved in the research process, internationally.
