The 7th EAP-I LTER Information Management Workshop (Draft)

 

 6-7 September 2020

 Kasetsart University, Bangkok in Thailand

 

 

Background

There is growing recognition that ecological data, especially long-term ecological data, should be networked and preserved for future studies in order to replicate and validate scientific research, and to enlarge spatial and temporal scales.  Information management (IM) is a vital tool benefited by the development of information technology (IT). It provides a new way to preserve and integrate long-term ecological research data. Since 2005 the EAP-ILTER has set up an information management training tradition to help scientists to manage and share research data. The first workshop was hosted by CERN in Beijing, China. Since then, there were already 6 workshops hosted by TERN( Taiwan) , KLTER (Korea), PhLTER (Philippines), and LTER Vietnam (Vietnam).The past workshops have helped the regional scientists to uncover data-driven solutions faster.

 

Goal of the 7TH IM Workshop

This workshop provides tools specifically created to meet modern demands for collaborative LTER science. The training program will also help create a positive open culture to enable better LTER science in less time.

 

Content of the Training Program

This workshop directly builds on the principles of ecoinformatics, but provides participants with a more immersive, LTER experiences in the form of informatic approach learning. The contents provide the added incentive activity including the participants handing on exercises with open source software collected by the workshop. The training content includes:

  1. Introduction of information management

  2. Describe research data with EML metadata standard and practice

  3. Introduction of scientific workflow using Kepler and R to analyze data

  4. Introduction of web-gis with using Geoserver and Qgis to visualize spatial data

 

Lecturers

Mr. Omarali B. Abdul Rahim (Malaysia)

Dr. Sheng Shan Lu (Taiwan)

Dr. Chau Chin Lin (Taiwan)

(Currently three of the information managers are confirmed to teach. EAP-ILTER IM Committee will announce to call for more volunteers and invite to join.)

 

Participants and requirement

LTER scientists who might be faculty members, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students and other researchers have not received formal training in nformation management. In addition, those who are not familiar with metadata,R programming, Scientific workflow and basic GIS are welcomed . Participants need to bring their own laptop and know how to operate open source programs either in Windows, Mac or Linux. Although the workshop will provide dataset for exercise, participants are encouraged to bring their own dataset to practice.

 

Software (will be provided by workshop)

  1. Java

  2. Morpho (metadata editor)

  3. Kepler  (scientific workflow)

  4. Qgis    (Spatial visualization)

Workshop venue facility need

The workshop expects to use a local network to access Metacat and Geoserver prepared by Dr. Chau chin Lin. A wifi application need to set up for use. The software will be provided by workshop. Therefore, a download site from the internet is expected to set up for participants can download before the workshop.
