Summer school in Biodiversity Modelling 2022

The 2022 edition of the summer school, which will take place from August 22 to 26, 2022 at the Centre de Villégiature Jouvence in Orford, will be on the theme: Biodiversity changes and data visualization. The course will take the form of a workshop during which the students, in collaboration with local organizations involved in biodiversity monitoring, will develop a web platform for visualizing biodiversity changes.

By the end of this course, the participants will be able to:

  • Develop analytical pipelines to quantify biodiversity changes
  • Create and critique data visualizations
  • Represent biodiversity data effectively to stakeholders from different sectors

This course is intended for students and professionals from all sectors. No prior knowledge of data visualization is required, but an intermediate level of knowledge in scientific programming is necessary and access to a recent computer is strongly suggested.
