Join us to explore Data Science in Oceanography!

Please join us at the Oceanhackweek 2019, August 26-30, 2019, at the University of
Washington, Seattle. This 5-day hands-on workshop aims to promote effective computational
practices for ocean research involving complex observational data and model outputs.
Examples include but are not limited to visualizing and analyzing high-resolution ocean GCM
simulations from ROMS, MOM, and MITgcm and working with datasets from ARGO, OOI,
CCHDO, and IOOS.

Unlike conventional conferences and workshops, Oceanhackweek is constructed based on
three core components: 1) immersive tutorials on libraries in the scientific Python ecosystem
for accessing and manipulating large datasets, 2) peer-learning, and 3) on-site project work
in a collaborative environment.

We invite all self-identified oceanographers who are motivated to learn new skills and
workflows to apply. We especially encourage applications from graduate students, post-docs,
and early-career scientists with strong interests or background in quantitative analysis of
ocean data and models. We believe that every participant, regardless of technical skill level or
research experience, can contribute to making Oceanhackweek a success.

To best benefit from the program, participants are expected to have some experience with
Python programming. Applicants with extensive programming background in other languages
are welcome to apply, if they are willing to get up-to-date on Python basics before the
program. Participants are also expected to be present and fully engaged for the entire
duration of the workshop.

Financial assistance for travel are available by application. Lodging at University of
Washington are provided for all non-local participants.

Application is open until May 13, 2019 at https://form.jotform.com/oceanhack/2019. Accepted
applicants will be notified no later than May 28, 2019.
