The EarthCube C4P Paleodata Hackathon will be held 20-21 June 2016 at NCAR (the National Center for Atmospheric Research) in Boulder, Colorado, USA.

Do you use paleobiological and paleoenvironmental resources like the Paleobiology Database and the Neotoma Paleoecology Database? Are you interested in exploring resources like these to pursue new scientific research? Do you want to help shape interoperability between them and other allied cyberinfrastructure resources (such as SESAR, NOAA Paleo, Open Core Data, LiPD, DarwinCore, VertNet, STEPPE, iDigPaleo)?

You are invited to apply to take part in the C4P Paleodata Hackathon. If accepted, your travel and accommodation expenses will be reimbursed.

Deadlines

Applications will be accepted until 25 March 2016. Notifications will be sent out in early April 2016. Early-career scientists are encouraged to apply.

More about C4P

Collaboration and Cyberinfrastructure for Paleogeosciences (C4P) is a Research Coordination Network (RCN) funded by the EarthCube initiative within the National Science Foundation.

C4P focuses on the development and deployment of standards for aggregation and dissemination of paleogeoscience data, with the goal of facilitating research focused on the ecology and evolution of life through time.

Goals

Increasing accessibility to "dark data" and hidden data and specimen collections are important goals of this project.

The specific goals for the hackathon are to:
1) Create space for hands-on working time for developers and principal investigators interested in building interoperability among PBDB, Neotoma, and allied cyberinfrastructure resources (SESAR, NOAA Paleo, Open Core Data, LiPD, DarwinCore, VertNet, STEPPE, iDigPaleo);
2) Engage early career scientists and other scientific users with these resources and give them time to explore and develop scientific applications;
3) Provide a forum for informal learning and conversations among scientific users, principal investigators, and developers;
4) Integrate data and sample registration workflows in compliance with emerging publishers’ policies (e.g. submission of data to trusted repositories, IGSN registration).
