CSSCR has a special workshop coming up this quarter provided by Dr. Shuming Bao from the University of Michigan. Dr. Bao is the Director for Spatial Data Center and China Data Center at the University of Michigan. A brief abstract for the workshop follows:

Abstract: The US NSF/SBE Advisory Committee released a report on “Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences Perspectives on Robust and Reliable Science” in 2015, which encourages research that is reproducible, replicable, and generalizable. This workshop/seminar will address how to build reproducible, replicable, and expandable case studies in data analysis by applying some workflow based tools. It will present some sample case studies in the spatial studies of population, religion, and industries. Future directions of the development and applications of workflow based case studies will be discussed.

As always, registration is open and free to anyone in the UW community.
