Applications due by July 26, 2019 5pm (MT)
Apply to participate in a three-day workshop hosted by the University of Texas at El Paso, New Mexico State University and NEON that will take place November 6 - 8, 2019.
Course instructors will introduce participants to NEON, teach them how to access and work with NEON data, and encourage opportunities to receive assistance working on the data they are interested in using. The workshop includes hands-on, interactive instruction on how to access and work with NEON data, both through the NEON data portal and programmatically. The third day is a site visit to the NEON Jornada field site.
Participation & Registration
Workshop space is limited to 40 participants and the workshop hosts welcome applications from anyone with interest in using and learning more about NEON data (graduate students, postdocs, researchers, motivated undergraduates). First priority will be given to applicants be from the New Mexico State University, University of Texas – El Paso, or Jornada LTER research communities or from an organization or agency local to these communities.
Required Prior Knowledge
All coding instruction will be conducted in R and participants will be able to complete the workshop best if they have at least an introduction to coding. Participants without past experience working in a programming environment are encouraged to complete a basic introduction to R to understand the basics -- training options can be found on the Resources for Learning R page. Participants using other programming languages are welcome to attend, however, instruction and assistance in the language may not be available.
