Cryospheric Science with ICESat-2 Hackweek, Seattle, June 17-21, 2019. Apply by Nov 2. , 2018
Following the successful launch of ICESat-2, the Polar Science Center at the University of Washington in collaboration with the eScience Institute and NASA will be hosting a weeklong "Hackweek" to help jumpstart Cryospheric Science with ICESat-2 (CSI). The CSI-Hackweek will bring together experts from the ICESat-2 science team, data providers, and data science experts, with researchers who want hands on experience with using and manipulating geophysical data from ICESat-2. CSI-Hackweek participants will learn about ICESat-2 fundamentals, data formats, tools, and how to get to results quickly. Introductory lectures will be combined with open data exploration, tool development, sample research applications, and community building. The CSI Hackweek will take place on the University of Washington Campus from June 17- 21, 2019. Applications are due by Nov. 2, 2018, apply online https://form.jotform.com/82604602604146.
As preparation for the workshop, we are also offering a 2-day Software Carpentry Workshop on February 7,8, 2019 on the UW Campus. For more information on the CSI-Hackweek and Software Carpentry workshops, please visit https://icesat-2hackweek.github.io/ or [hidden email].
