Software Tools for Sensor Networks

We are happy to announce a training workshop “Software Tools for Sensor Networks” sponsored by LTER, NCEAS and DataONE. The training workshop will be held May 1 - May 4, 2012 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 25, 2012. Please see http://sensor-workshop.ecoinformatics.org/ to register. Your participation will be confirmed by April 2, 2012. Participants will be selected to broadly represent the community. A draft agenda and resources are currently listed on the webpage and will be more fully detailed in the coming weeks.
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 options for managing streaming sensor data and discuss requirements for sensor data management systems and best practices in quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC). Hands-on exercises will focus on open source software stacks such as the Open Source DataTurbine (OSDT), the Kepler Workflow System with R, and CUAHSI's Observation Data Model to capture, quality control, and archive sensor data. Ultimately, we hope that this training will stimulate collaborative efforts where sites can share tool experiences or even code development.
· Workshop dates: May 1 - May 4 (noon), 2012; Travel days: April 30 and May 4 afternoon.
· Registration deadline: March 25, 2012
· Participant confirmation: April 2, 2012
