We invite early career scientists (within 5 years of PhD completion), graduate, and undergraduate students to participate in a workshop during the 2016 AGU annual meeting to learn about sample management best practices and to design sample management plans for use in their own labs and to share with students. The workshop is sponsored by the NSF Earthcube Research Coordination Network iSamples (the Internet of Samples in the Earth Sciences), a group working toward planning and developing an “internet of physical samples” for the Earth sciences.
The workshop will include tutorials on sample management tools and techniques, from field work to research collections, repositories and archiving, including a tutorial on obtaining and using the International Geo Sample Number (IGSN) and how to cite samples properly in publications. Participants will begin preparing their own sample management plans that can be used to fulfill NSF Data Management and new publication requirements to make data and physical sample information widely available.
When: Wednesday, December 14 from 4 – 5:30 pm
Where: Golden Gate University, Room #5224
536 Mission St, San Francisco, CA 94105
10 minute walk from the Moscone Center
Dinner will be provided for participants after the workshop at a location to be announced. Please register for the workshop by emailing Ben Hallett (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Ashlee Dere (email@example.com) with 1) your name, 2) institution, 3) type of physical samples you typically work with, and 4) whether you would like to join us for dinner, by November 30, 2016. Participants will be notified via email with additional information about the workshop. Please contact Ben, Ashlee, or Megan Carter (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions.
