Data Upload and Maintenance Workshop (24th August 2012 in Marburg)

The workshop focuses on structuring and uploading new research data into the FOR816 Data Warehouse. It also aims to complement existing dataset and enhance its metadata quality for publishing (with a DOI) and reuse. This makes your data more valuable and persistently referable.

Every research unit member is invited to join the workshop, but the number of participants will be limited to a group of  five to ensure an intensive support.

If you are interested please contact the data manager Thomas Lotz.

 

Unfortunately, this workshop did not take place due to missing registrations.

Curso de Campo: “Diversidad de plantas vasculares (árboles, epífitas) y almacenamiento de carbono en bosque montano ”


version 20.12.2011:

Se ofrece un curso sobre levantamiento y análisis de datos florísticos (árboles y epífitas vasculares) con el objetivo de analizar la composición, diversidad florística (alfa y beta) y el almacenamiento de carbono en los bosques tumbesinos de montaña en el extremo sur del Ecuador. El curso combina enseñanza en conocimiento del ecosistema con trabajo de campo y análisis de datos florísticos (idioma de trabajo: espa
ñol). Se incluirán análisis estadísticos univariados (estimadores de diversidad, rarefacción, etc.) y multivariados (ej. ordenaciones DCA y NMDS). El curso ofrece 16 plazas para estudiantes de las carreras universitarias de Biología, manejo forestal, conservación del ambiente u otras carreras afines. Se llevará a cabo del 24 de marzo hasta el 3 de abril del 2012 de la siguiente manera:

Fase 1: 5 días de métodos y trabajo de campo en un bosque andino semihumedo en la Provincia de Loja (24.-29.3.2012).
Fase 2: 5 días de teoría, identificación de especies y análisis estadístico en la ciudad de Loja y la Estación Científica San Francisco (ECSF) (29.3.-3.4.).

El curso tiene un costo de US $ 210 que incluye:
-       Transporte entre Loja y el sitio de estudio.
-       5 días de alojamiento y comida en el campo.

El viaje a la ciudad de Loja y los 5 días en la ciudad (fase 2; alojamiento y comida) actualmente representan costos adicionales. Esperamos alternativamente poder ofrecer hospedaje gratuito en la ECSF ó con compañeros lojanos para todos participantes que no tengan hogar en Loja, aún que en este momento todavía no se puede garantizar esto. Aplicantes lojanos pedimos constar en su carta de aplicación si pueden ofrezer hospedaje para 1-2 participantes de afuera de Loja en su casa, en caso que no podrémos ofrecer hospedaje en la ECSF para todas personas. Posibles novedades con respeto al hospedaje durante la fase 2 se publicará en una convocatoria actualizada bajo “noticias”/”news” en www.tropicalmountainforest.org ó directamente a través de http://137.248.191.82/news.do?newsid=117 antes del 27 de enero.

Personas interesadas en el curso favor enviar su currículum y una breve carta de aplicación (max. 1 página) hasta el 27 de enero del 2012 por correo electrónico a los coordinadores. Se confirmará la participación antes del 3 de febrero 2012.

Der Central Data Service Z1 bietet vom 11.-12. Juni einen Daten-Upload Workshop in Marburg an. Hierbei wird vorgestellt, wie Datensammlungen der Teilprojekte im zentralen Data-Warehouse zum Austausch mit anderen Forschern zur Verfügung gestellt werden können. Der Workshop wird sich besonders auf die technische Unterstützung beim Upload-Vorgang konzentrieren. Es wird aber auch Raum für Fragen und Wünsche bezüglich der Nutzung und Entwicklung der Datenbank geben.


Der Workshop kann von jedem besucht werden, der in naher Zukunft seine Daten über das Datawarehouse der Forschergruppe zur Verfügung stellen möchte, aber mit der angebotenen Anleitung unter "Data > FOR816 data > Neuen Datensatz hochladen" nicht zurecht kommt. Die Teilnaheme am Workshop ist für alle Teilprojekte der Phase 1 verpflichtend, die bis zum 31. Mai 2010 ihre im Forschungsantrag (Phase1) angekündigten Daten nicht hochgeladen haben. Der Workshop hat primär das Ziel, den Upload dieser fehlenden Daten zu unterstützen.

Es freut sich auf einen informativen und erfolgreichen Workshop, das Team Z1 Central Data Services:
Thomas Lotz, Kerstin Bach, Maik Dobbermann
