(Closes March 18)
‘Coastlines and people Open data and MachinE learning sprinT’ (COMET) to be held May 2-6, 2022 in Kitty Hawk, NC. This sprint is in a series of three 72hr events focused on open, data-driven Coastlines and People (CoPe) science.
There is funding available for ~10-15 participants to attend the event (lodging, travel, per diem). Participants will bring a feasible research idea to pitch to the group during the event. Ideas should focus on using open data to do science related to Coastlines and People. After project pitches, participants will divide up into self-selected groups to work on ideas for the next 72 hrs, ultimately producing open deliverables by the end of the sprint.
Groups will give a final report to other participants describing the work they accomplished during the event. All code written at the event will be open, put on GitHub, and given a DOI. Groups will be invited to submit a working paper to the EarthArXiv preprint service if the project continues. Some publication funds are available for groups that reach that milestone.
The event is open to all programming abilities and does not require skills in machine learning. The application will be open until March 18th, 2022.
