Workshop: Massive Collaboration for Transformative Research
With Erle Ellis, Professor, Geography &Environmental Systems
Interested in publishing a high impact paper next year? This workshop will detail the collaborative crowd-sourcing approach that enabled a dispersed group of social, natural and information scientists to execute and publish their research in Science magazine in just 18 months.
Faculty and students wishing to develop massively collaborative research projects will learn about and discuss strategies for success with Dr. Erle Ellis, Professor of Geography & Environmental Systems, the paper's senior author and principal investigator of UMBC's NSF-funded GLOBE project, which laid the foundations for this work.
This event is sponsored by the Office of the Vice Provost for Research and the Center for Social Science Scholarship. Lunch will be provided.
