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 Advanced Workshops will take place on
19-23 August 2019.  Apply here!
<https://e-applications.ictp.it/applicant/login/3376>**Deadline: 18/04/2019*

During this activity, several applied/thematic workshops on Research Data
Science run in parallel.

   - *Bioinformatics:  *This workshop focuses on building Machine Learning
   workflows using NGS Data. Topics include: Experimental design; Introduction
   to NGS data analysis; Machine Learning in NGS; and CWL. Participants should
   be familiar with UNIX shell and R programming language.
   - *IoT and Big Data Analytics: *This workshop presents the analysis of
   vast amounts of data produced by embedded devices, sensors, appliances and
   other data-collecting systems in real time using new processes and tools
   for collecting, storing and processing IoT big data, event/streaming data.
   Participants should be familiar with software installation and programming
   in R or Java or Python. Professionals & corporate entities should apply for
   this workshop via the ITU Academy.
   - *Climate Data Sciences: *This workshop will introduce Cloud-Computing
   based Data access, processing and visualisation tools for Climate Science,
   including the Copernicus climate data services platforms and the CMIP Earth
   System Grid. Participants will work in small project teams and should have
   a background in Climate Sciences and/or climate modeling.
   - *Extreme Sources of Data: *This workshop introduces the basics
   relative to a cut-and-count particle physics analysis as performed in the
   ATLAS Collaboration (Large Hadron Collider). Topics to be covered include
   phenomenological, experimental and data-analysis aspects of the Standard
   Model; software development and tools for analysis and reproducible science
   and sharing. Participants should have taken at least one course on Particle
   Physics at High Education level.

Individuals seeking an introduction to Research Data Science can apply to
the *Summer School <http://indico.ictp.it/event/8706/>* that runs
immediately before the workshops.

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 should register/apply for the Advanced Workshop on IoT and
   Big-Data Analytics 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/299263596>*

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.
