DVS Workshop: Increasing Openness and Reproducibility in Quantitative Research

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Tue, 2017-10-03 13:00
Bostock Library - The Edge Workshop Room
"There are many actions researchers can take to increase the openness and reproducibility of their work. Please join us for a workshop, hosted by the Center for Open Science, to learn easy, practical steps researchers can take to increase the reproducibility of their work. The workshop will be hands-on. Using example studies, attendees will actively participate in creating a reproducible project from start to finish. Topics covered include project documentation, version control, pre-analysis plans, and open source tools like the Open Science Framework.This workshop is aimed at graduate students and postdocs, across disciplines, who are engaged in quantitative research. The workshop does not require any specialized knowledge of programming. Participants will gain a foundation for incorporating reproducible, transparent practices into their current workflows. Attendees will need to bring their own laptop in order to fully participate."

NCLAFF Film: Boi Neon | Neon Bull

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Mon, 2017-10-02 23:00
White 107 (White Lecture Hall)
Portuguese w/ English subtitles. Gabriel Mascaro (Brazil), 2015. 91min. >>> Iremar works at the "Vaquejadas", a rodeo in the North East of Brazil where two men on horseback try to bring down a bull by grabbing its tail. It's dusty and back-breaking work, but Iremar is a natural vaqueiro feeding, prepping and taking care of the bulls. The truck he uses to transport the animals from show to show is also his home, which he shares with his coworkers: Galega, an exotic dancer, truck driver and mother to her spirited and cheeky daughter Cacá; and Zé, his rotund compadre in the bull pen. Together they form a makeshift but close-knit family. But Brazil and the Northeast are changing and the region's booming clothing industry has stirred new ambitions in Iremar. Swinging in his hammock in the back of the truck, his head is filled with dreams of pattern cutting, sequins and exquisite fabrics as he mentally assembles his latest sexy fashion designs.

VFF: Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest -- 60+ Years of Data

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Fri, 2017-09-29 16:00
LSRC D106
The Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest in New Hampshire has one of the longest continuous ecological datasets. We created a website where data stories display some of the most fascinating discoveries made there and exploratory plots allow for deeper and innovative analysis. The interactivity of the plots includes selecting time granularity, solutes to compare, and filtering by different variables. Data stories are intended for students in introductory college level ecology courses and the exploratory tools are geared toward researchers.
