Training workshop: Software tools and strategies for managing sensor networks

We are pleased to announce a training workshop "Software tools and strategies for managing sensor networks" sponsored by the Long-Term Ecological Research program (LTER<http://www.lternet.edu>) and the University of San Diego (UCSD<http://www.dataturbine.org/>). The training will be held April 23-26, 2013, at the LTER Network Office in Albuquerque, NM.  We have support to cover travel and lodging for participants that need it. Registration is now open with a deadline of March 4, 2013.

Please see http://im.lternet.edu/im_training/sensors_2013 and click on "Training application form" to register. Your participation will be confirmed by March 11, 2013. Participants will be selected to broadly represent the ecological and environmental science community. Demand is likely to be high and we probably will not be able to accommodate all applicants.

The goal of this training is to promote best practices for sensor data management and provide hands-on training in the use of existing tools and common software. This workshop is designed to introduce several software tools for managing streaming sensor data with hands-on exercises. Software tool training will include Open Source DataTurbine, GCE Data Toolbox for MATLAB, the CUAHSI technology stack, an introduction to the Kepler workflow system and introductory R. Best practices for managing sensor data and providing quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC) will be discussed. Workshop trainers and software resource links are listed on the webpage. The agenda and more detailed information will follow in the coming weeks.

* Workshop dates: April 23 - April 26 (noon), 2013; Travel days: April 22 and April 26 afternoon.
* Registration deadline: March 4, 2013
* Participant confirmation: March 11, 2013
