CODATA-RDA Research Data Summer School 2020

January 13 - January 24

ZAR1150

The CODATA-RDA Research Data Summer School, to be hosted in Pretoria from 13 to 24
January, 2020, provides early career researchers (M-level to postdoc) with the foundational
data science skills, which include technical skills and responsible research practices, to enable
them to work with their data in an effective and ef cient manner required by 21st century
research.

WORKSHOP INFORMATION

The material covered by the programme is fundamental to all areas of research, and thus open
to researchers and professionals from all disciplines that deal with signi cant amounts of
research data. The goal is to provide a practical introduction to these topics with some theory
and extensive hands-on training.

TOPICS

  • Open Science
  • Introduction to Unix Shell
  • Introduction to Git
  • Open and Collaborative Research
  • Research Data Management
  • Cleaning Data with OpenRe ne
  • Data Analysis and Visualisation – Using R
  • Data Intensive Social Science
  • Author Carpentry
  • Information Security
  • Machine Learning and Neural Networks
  • Research Computational Infrastructure

PROGRAMME

The ever-accelerating volume and variety of data being generated is having a huge impact on a
wide variety of research disciplines, from the sciences to the humanities. The international,
collective ability to create, share and analyse vast quantities of data is having a profound,
transformative effect. What can justly be called the ‘Data Revolution’ offers many
opportunities coupled with signi cant challenges. High among these is the need to develop the
necessary professions and skills. Contemporary research – particularly when addressing the
most signi cant, inter-disciplinary research challenges – cannot effectively be done without a
range of skills relating to data. The CODATA-RDA School of Research Data Science has
developed a short course curriculum, in summer school style, that addresses these training
requirements.
