This workshop will introduce the Ecological Forecasting Initiative Research Coordination Network’s (EFI-RCN) National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) Forecast Challenge, and provide you with all of the information and materials so that you can start submitting to the Challenge! Challenge materials include easy-to-use software, tools, and templates that have been developed in the R programming language. We will provide an example forecasting workflow in R to follow-along and provide assistance to participants to set up their own forecasting workflow. If time permits, workflow automation will also be introduced.

Programming language: R
Requirements for participation: Prior to the webinar, you will need R installed on your computer, and RStudio is recommended. If you have any problems with installations, use the Contact Us page.
