Hi everyone,

Join us for the third Marine Biodiversity Data Mobilization Workshop - a contribution to the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development and the Marine Life 2030 Decade Action. The workshop is jointly hosted by CIOOS, Hakai, IOOS, MBON, OBIS-USA, and OTN.

This workshop is intended to be a small hands-on, interactive, virtual workshop focused on mobilizing marine biological observation datasets to the Ocean Biodiversity Information System (OBIS). The primary objective of the workshop is helping data providers standardize their data according to Darwin Core. This includes species observations from any type of sampling methodologies (e.g. visual surveys, net tows, microscopy, fish trawls, imaging, ‘omics, acoustics, telemetry). The workshop will be held virtually April 22 - 23, 2024 from 1300 - 1700 ET. Optionally, a third day (April 24, 1300 - 1700 ET) can be opened up to address any final blockers participants might have.

Requirements to participate? 

  • Must have a dataset to work on. 

  • Must have some R or Python experience. 

  • Must have a basic knowledge of Github. 

To apply, please fill out this form. Application deadline: February 15, 2024. Accepted applicants will be notified no later than March 15, 2024. 

Accepted participants will receive details about workshop logistics shortly after being notified. A certificate of attendance will be available upon request following completion of the workshop. Please forward to colleagues who may be interested in this event.

We look forward to seeing you online!

Kind regards,

The SMBD Working Group
