ARC member Nicholas Polys helped organize a session at the CHCI Workshop Technology on the Trail on March 2-3. The session “From Experience to Abstraction and Back Again” discussed the challenges and opportunities for citizen science, especially the use of uncertain data to build new scientific models. The event was covered with an article in the Roanoke Times!
Featuring sessions on big data workflows, data visualization, data publishing, and reproducible research practices, the 2017 Big Data Science Workshop will also incorporate a brainstorming/strategy session aimed at improving research workflows, a networking breakfast, and lightning talks.
ARC’s Nicholas Polys and Brian Marshall each presented. The event flyer is here:
