DCO Webinar Wednesdays: Explore Data Science, Modeling, and Visualization

A new series of DCO webinars focusing on big data modeling and visualization launched Wednesday, 17 May 2017.

DCO Webinar WednesdaysA new series of DCO webinars focusing on big data modeling and visualization launched Wednesday, 17 May 2017. Called “DCO Webinar Wednesdays,” this webinar series builds on the successful workshop program at the Third DCO International Science Meeting and takes place monthly over the summer. We hope you join in to learn from DCO experts in data science, modeling, and data visualization, who will guide you through a series of available modeling tools and software packages that you can integrate into your research now. Synthesis Group 2019 and the DCO Engagement Team are hosting this series.

You can join the webinars live, and follow along on Twitter on the hashtag #DCOWebWed.

All webinars will begin with a 30-minute presentation, followed by 15 minutes for open discussion and Q&A.

All previous webinars are archived, so you can catch up at any time. The final webinar of this series on 12 October 2017 will bring together the presenters for a live Q&A, giving you plenty of opportunity to view the archive and have your questions answered by our panel of experts.

Contact Katie Pratt (katie_pratt@uri.edu) or Darlene Trew Crist (dtcristdco@gmail.com) with any questions about the webinar series, or if you would like to propose a future series.
