Materials related to workshops, courses and data institutes hosted by the NEON project are posted to this section of the website as they become available. We also host workshop materials for NEON-related courses and workshops presented by collaborating institutions. While these materials are designed to be used by participants during a workshop, many of the materials are structured as self-guided, do-it-yourself tutorials for people to review and work with if they are unable to attend an event.

If you are interested in collaborating on a workshop or would like us to host your NEON-related workshop materials, please contact us
