Hi Everyone,

Thought you'd all like to know about this upcoming Biodiversity 
Informatics course, offered to Nordic graduate students, postdocs, and 

Kilpisjärvi calling: Order and Sense to Your Data at the Polar Frontier
ForBio: proudly presents the first-time-ever course on biodiversity 
informatics and data management
*More info:* 

*When:* 29 July -1 August 2014
*Where:* Kilpisjärvi Biological Station, University of Helsinki, Finland 
*What:* A course for Nordic graduate students, postdocs, and researchers 
which explores data tools beyond MS Excel and R! What are the modern, 
efficient, mistake-proof ways to collect and manage field and lab data, 
identifiers, traits, and environmental variables? How can you store your 
data to easily integrate with external databases? This course covers 
basics of data collecting and data management but leaves out data 
analysis to other courses.
*How much:* No course fee. Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, or Finnish PhD 
students and postdocs are encouraged to join ForBio - the Research 
School in Biosystematics, since members are reimbursed for 
course-related travel costs and accommodation in shared rooms and food 
at Kilpisjärvi Station. ForBio may also support masters students 
registered at Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, or Finnish universities who 
provide compelling evidence that they need the course for their thesis 
work. ForBio will not cover any expenses (e.g., food, travel, or 
accommodation costs) for other participants who have to be registered as 
ForBio associates to attend the course.

Please pass along to any who might be interested in taking the course -- 
or developing a similar one.
