From our co-located booths in the Exhibition Hall, we will offer advice to ecologists on all things “data”. Also, in coordination with the ESA Career Center, we have a variety of presentations planned on topics ranging from “How to write a Data Management Plan for a Proposal” to “Data Cleaning for Analysis and Publication Using R and OpenRefine Software Packages.” The complete list of talks will be listed here (https://www.idigbio.org/wiki/index.php/ESA_2019_Data_Help_Desk) in the near future.
