Transboundary Groundwater Resilience All-Virtual Interactive Event (NYWW)
The Transboundary Groundwater Resilience Network is excited to announce its participation in New York Water Week (NYWW) to contribute to defining and solving water challenges worldwide. NYWW is comprised of many community-led events focused on helping solve global water challenges and bringing together researchers from across the globe who are dedicated to improving water management. NYWW is being held alongside UN Water 2023, the first United Nations dedicated water conference since 1977, which is committed to making a difference within global communities to solve the water and sanitation crisis.
This Call to Action event will make progress on the Connecting the World for Transboundary Groundwater Resilience (TGR) UN Water Action Commitment. Presentations on case studies, data analyses, network analyses, and simulation modeling methods will provide a basis for group discussion. Participants are encouraged to share best practices and priorities from their local regions and fields of study. This event will focus on data, systems, networks, and community-based approaches to foster Transboundary Groundwater Resilience.
Taking place on Monday, March 20, 2023, from 11am - 1pm ET/8am - 10am PT this event will feature several speakers spanning multiple water disciplines, including Dr. Sam Fernald, director of the New Mexico Water Resources Research Institute, Dr. Ilya Zaslavsky, director of Spatial Information Systems Laboratory, San Diego Supercomputer Center, and others to provide a comprehensive view on the current perspectives on transboundary groundwater resilience. This event will also include an interactive community participation session focused on audience needs and priorities related to transboundary groundwater research and management.
NSDF Distinguished Speaker Series
Join the National Science Data Fabric (NSDF) on March 23, 10:30am MT for their upcoming webinar on Large (Hadron Collider) and Big (Data Science). Dr. Federica Legger, an associate researcher at the National Institute for Nuclear Physics will be discussing the challenges of designing, deploying, and operating a distributed and heterogeneous computing infrastructure. During this webinar, the audience will learn how machine learning and artificial intelligence techniques can be leveraged to address complex challenges, from data taking to data processing to data analysis.
Bio-IT World 2023 Hackathon
Bio-IT World is proud to bring together innovative data scientists and developers from across the industry to solve real-world data challenges using the principles of Open Source & FAIR Data. Over the years, the Bio-IT World Hackathon has delivered a new level of collaboration to the annual Bio-IT World Conference & Expo in Boston. The 2022 FAIR Data Hackathon, co-facilitated with leaders from the NIH and NVIDIA, brought together 4 teams and over 75 participants to solve real data challenges. Back again in 2023, the fifth annual Bio-IT Hackathon will continue in the tradition of uniting life science and IT teams to tackle actual bioinformatics projects with maximum impact potential. Projects at the event will feature either Open Source tools or some or all aspects of making data findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable. All projects will be broadly applicable to the data science community. The Hackathon will take place from May 15-16, with each team lead participating in a “Report Out” presentation during the FAIR Data for Genomic Applications conference track.The 2023 Bio-IT World Conference and Expo will take place from May 16-18 in person in Boston, MA and virtually. Submit a project proposal by Tuesday, March 21. Register to participate here.
