All levels
Please note that classes are mostly given in French.

The Calcul Québec Spring School in high-performance computing (HPC) allows graduate students, post-docs, researchers and professionals to learn how to make effective use of high-performance computing resources while at the same time benefiting from privileged access to Calcul Québec analysts for an entire week.

Working Group in Biodiversity Synthesis: Call for Application

CIEE and BIOS² are co-sponsoring a data-driven working group in biodiversity synthesis. We invite graduate students from CIEE Member Universities and BIOS² Universities to submit an application for a one week working group at UBC May 4-8, 2020. Applications due: March 6, 2020.

The objective of this activity is to provide graduate students the opportunity to get experience in team projects oriented toward biodiversity synthesis and data analysis. Providing students a stimulating training environment is central to the activity. Working groups consist of a small group of researchers who meet in person in a single location, and work intensively and collaboratively on a research question, using best practices in team science and digital collaboration.

Training session: Mathematical Modeling in Ecology and Evolution

BIOS2 presents a training session about:

Mathematical Modeling in Ecology and Evolution with Mathematica and Maxima.

This online training will be led by Dr. Sarah P. Otto (UBC) and held in two parts : January 14 and January 16, 2020, from 10 to 12:30 PST / 1 to 3:30 EST.

This workshop will introduce participants to the logic behind modeling in biology, focusing on developing equations, finding equilibria, analyzing stability , and running simulations.  Techniques will be illustrated with the software tools, Mathematica and Maxima.

Call for proposals : BIOS² – CIEE synthesis group

Applications due: January 8, 2020.

We invite experienced biodiversity researchers from both academic (universities) and non-academic organizations (e.g. government departments, non-profit organizations, Indigenous organizations, community groups, industry) to submit proposals for a one week working group focused on a question in biodiversity science.

Training session : Intellectual property and open science

BIOS2 presents a training session about:

Intellectual property issues in the context of open and collaborative science

To be held on December 13, 2019, from 1 to 4 PM (local time) at UQAM, Montreal, Room SH-2540 (Sherbrooke Hall).

The training session will be led by Eve-Lyne Comtois-Dinel, a research scientist and PhD candidate in sociology at UQAM, affiliated with TÉLUQ. Eve-Lyne is also research professional at CIRANO.
