The goal of the CODATA-RDA Summer Schools in Data Science and Cloud Computing in the Developing World WG is to set up a series of Summer Schools in Research Data Science with an emphasis on supporting researchers from Low and Middle Income Countries (LMIC’s) - though researchers from other countries are welcome. The longer term goal of such schools are to enlighten the current generation of early-career reseachers on the importance of data sharing, analysing and storing it appropriately and this effecting the goals of the RDA itself. This meeting will provide a status update on the progress that has been made, an outline of the tasks ahead for the remainder of the duration of the WG and a consideration of future plans beyond the present school series.
Give progress update on schools.
Provide set of tasks for the remainder of WG.
