SEN October Newsletter: AGU, Datathon, Publishing data, and Recent SEN Knowledge Base entries

Greetings experimentalists!

A list of SEN-related presentations at AGU

Do you have an oral or poster presentation at the Fall AGU Meeting that is related to sediment experiments? Forward your email from AGU (From: agumeetingsinfo@agu.org, Subject: 2016 AGU Fall Meeting Abstract Status Notification) and share it with sedimentexp@gmail.com. We'll compile a great list of presentations to see. Send your contribution by Nov. 10. We'll share the list next month.


To accelerate the development of the SEN Knowledge Base (SEN-KB: www.sedexp.net) as a useful tool for collaborative research on sedimentary processes, the Sediment Experimentalist Network (SEN) will be hosting a “DataThon” on the Sunday prior to this year’s AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco. The DataThon will bring together a core group of sedimentary scientists (with a focus on early-career scientists) to contribute new entries and improve existing entries in SEN-KB, and to build accompanying entries in the SEAD repository. Leaders of SEN will be onsite to help DataThon participants to learn how to use and navigate SEN-KB for this activity. Please contact us at sedimentexp@gmail.com if you would like to participate in this collaborative activity. SEN can cover your hotel and food costs for the day of the event.

Publishing data with the help of SEN and SEAD

SEN is partnering with SEAD data services to make our experimental data accessible and citable. We've been helping people to curate their data in SEAD 1.5, and we are making the transition to SEAD 2.0. Do you have data to publish? Contact us at sedimentexp@gmail.com and we'll help you.
