The Data Carpentry workshop, sponsored by CEREO and WSU’s Graduate and Professional Student Association, is a two-day, hands-on event geared towards those interested in developing core skills for working with data effectively and reproducibly. This workshop covers the fundamental, computational skills needed for data management and analysis, including how to create, clean and import data, and work with data in R, using methods that are readable, reusable and reliable. Participants work through short tutorials and practical exercises done via live coding. No prior experience with R or programming is necessary. This workshop will be held in 20-21 March, 2017.

Preproposal Deadline: 03/30/2017
Purpose: to prepare for future environmental challenges by enhancing community capacity to plan and implement resiliency projects and improve the protections afforded by natural ecosystems by investing in green infrastructure and other measures. The program will focus on water quality and quantity declines, forest health concerns, and sea level rise. The program will emphasize community inclusion and assistance to traditionally underserved populations in vulnerable areas.
Funding priorities for this program include:
High-impact resiliency adaptations to help communities prepare for fire in the U.S. West, floods and droughts in the Mid-West, and sea-level rise on the Eastern seaboard.
Community demonstration and capacity-building projects that help communities understand environmental risks and opportunities and organize and take actions to improve local resiliency by enhancing natural buffers and system functions.
Theme: Perspectives on the Past, Present, and Future of Environmental Issues
Date: Saturday, April 1st
Location: Washington State University: CUE 518
Keynote Address: Dr. Dan Spencer, University of Montana
The interdisciplinary Spring 2017 EARThS Conference seeks papers that address such questions from graduate students in the humanities, social sciences, and biophysical sciences at University of Idaho and Washington State University. Ideal papers will focus on case studies or cross-sectional analyses of (1) creative approaches to examine the past, present, or future of environmental issues or (2) interdisciplinary efforts that seek to address or adapt to such problems in local, regional, national, and/or international venues.
We have attached the abstract submission form and we encourage everyone to apply. Abstract submissions are due by March 10th and can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. You are also welcome to forward the call for abstracts to other researchers you think might be interested.

Reception to follow 5:30-7:00pm The spread of disease and antibiotic resistance is a global phenomenon linked to interactions between people, their animals and their environments. WSU’s Paul G. Allen School for Global Animal Health is celebrating 10 years of exploring these interactions and developing interventions that benefit communities in Africa, and help mitigate spread of disease to the U.S. and around the world. The event will feature a panel moderated by Washington Global Health Alliance’s Tina Vlasaty. Regents Professor Guy Palmer will lead the panel in sharing lessons learned in the past decade, and the advancements to come in collaboration with members of Washington’s strong global health community.
