Community Spotlights

Hawaiʻi Climate Data Portal Serves as Model for West Hub
By: Tori Miranda and Kimberly Bruch
Knowledge of climate patterns is critically important for a variety of resource management issues, including groundwater and surface water development and protection, controlling and eradicating invasive species, protecting and restoring native ecosystems, and planning for the effects of global warming. Resource managers, climate researchers, educators and students have a powerful new tool with the launch of the Hawaiʻi Climate Data Portal (HCDP).

SDSC HPC and Data Science Summer Institute 2022 | May 13 deadline

The San Diego Supercomputer Center Summer Institute is a week-long workshop held at the UC San Diego (UCSD) and focuses on a broad spectrum of introductory to intermediate topics in High Performance Computing and Data Science. This year’s Summer Institute will encompass two consecutive sessions to support both programmers and non-programmers and those that may benefit from both sessions. Current plans are for the Institute to be an in-person event at SDSC using UCSD facilities for housing and dining - please review UCSD policies regarding vaccinations, masking, and testing in further detail at Return to Learn here. Registration is $300. Applications are due Friday, May 13 and additional information may be found here.
Joining the Data Revolution: Big Data in Education and Social Science Research Workshop | June 6-17

Applications are open for the Institute for Research on Innovation and Science's summer introductory-level workshop for researchers in education and social science fields (ESS) interested in gaining experience working with large-scale restricted data. The goal of the workshop is to increase the ability of participants to define and develop projects that will result in competitive proposals that might be submitted to NSF or other funders. A secondary goal is to support a community of researchers who can share information, tools, and insights to help strengthen research and teaching capabilities involving large-scale data analysis in ESS fields. The virtual workshop will run from June 17. The application and a full description are available here. Please contact IRIS Managing Director Nancy Calvin-Naylor at with any questions.
Women in Data Science (WiDS) Datathon | June 30 deadline

The Excellence in Research Award (Phase II) is open until June 30. Participants in Phase II will have the opportunity to choose to explore one dataset among several, spanning sectors including healthcare, energy, and environmental protection. Participants will also have opportunities to take deeper dives into their dataset and tackle a range of impactful real-world tasks. Teams will submit a research report at the end of Phase II.

Call for Submissions:
Data Science Journal

Throughout 2022, the Data Science Journal invites submissions related to the evolution and future directions of data science (broadly defined), including recent advances, retrospective analyses, and community inspirations and provocations. Learn more here
Call for Volunteers: 
Transboundary Groundwater Resiliency Research (TGRR) Network

Are you a data scientist interested in collaborating with water scientists, systems scientists, and stakeholders to work towards a more resilient water future? We invite you to join our growing team of TGRR Network volunteers! 

Volunteers will be engaged in and learn about the coordination of international, cross-disciplinary research collaboration. Students and early-career researchers will be prioritized for volunteer positions, and TGRR specifically encourages participation from underrepresented groups in academia. We will fill the open volunteer positions on a rolling basis and work with the volunteers to ensure that their position aligns with their career goals. Learn more and apply
