Event description

Description

Your hosts for this Meet up are Brendan Ansell and Pablo Franco, Research Community Coordinators from Research Platforms Services, The University of Melbourne. Bring your own Laptop.

This meet up is being held on Thursday 24th August from 3pm - 6pm. A cheese and dip platter and beverages will be served.

About this event:

Given the success of our previous meet-up and the expressed interest of many on getting to know more R-packages we are going to be running our second meet-up on August 24th! This time some of us will present some packages in an absolutely informal fashion. If you are interested in showing us a package that you find useful, helpful, interesting or even funny, please send Pablo (pablo.franco.dn@gmail.com) a quick email with the name of the package and your name (just for organization purposes, we won’t be censoring packages). No need to prepare anything formal, having a running example is more than enough (even if it is not your own creation). Don’t miss out, this is a great chance to get to know new R packages and, more importantly, the community that is actively using R for research. Don’t feel like presenting a package? Don’t worry, just come along and immerse yourself in the knowledge that your peers have to share while enjoying some light snacks and beverages together. Don't Forget to bring your laptop.

This event is bought to you by Research Platforms Services

A little bit about us......

We are researchers, training researchers! We get you! and would like to embrace you into our Community. Please feel free to swing by our new space called "Co - Lab", located in the Eastern Resource Centre, Room 329, Level 3 ( Building # 171) You are welcome anytime and we would love to see you there!

Research Platforms provides, builds and maintains ICT infrastructure for researchers, in particular cloud compute infrastructure and data storage infrastructure. Enabling data-driven research and the effective use of IT is at the centre of everything we do. We service more than 3,000 researchers from all disciplines across Parkville, within Victoria, and nationally.We work closely with key research support units including Faculty IT teams, the Melbourne eResearch Group, the Library, and other Infrastructure Services departments.

As well as providing underlying infrastructure services, we also work with researchers to provide a range of training, engagement and community building activities aimed at both maximising usage of the facilities, and maximising the value researchers get from them. By building community infrastructure in this way, we connect researchers with each other, with the supplied infrastructure, and with related infrastructure and services such as NCI, Pawsey, VLSCI, etc.
