The workshop is divided into three phases:

All Zoom sessions will be conducted at 03:00-05:00 am UTC+0 *

If you are interested in this workshop, please fill out the application form.

Due to limited training personnel, we will only be able to accommodate 30 participants in this workshop. We hope all participants will become trainers or mentors for future workshops.

If we receive over 30 applications to participate in the training, we will select participants based on the following criteria (not in specific order):

  • Applicants that have already identified dataset(s) that they intend to publish;
  • Applicants that represent data holding institutions planning to publish data;
  • Applicants that have plans to hold replication workshops;
  • Applicants that intend to become mentors to support future workshops (advanced badge needed);

The application will close at 23:59 UTC on the 23rd of August 2022.
The result will be announced by the end of the 26th August 2022.
