We're aiming to focus TWEEDS on the tools, methods and data that are relevant to environmental economics/policy/science/studies. In most conferences, you give a quick nod to your data and methods (and ignore the tools). In this workshop, we want to focus on the tools, methods, and data that make research possible.
We're hoping that this focus leads us to many conversations (e.g., workflow, visualization, technique, reproducibility) that are less common in more "traditional" conferences.
No. Because this year's event will be remote, we are waving registration fees.
Probably not this year. But we're starting to put together plans for next year.
Yes! Please apply to present. We're really hoping to feature these types of presentations.
Emphatically: Yes! We really want TWEEDS to bring together a diverse group of people working on topics related to the environment, data science, and/or economics.
Certainly! Please apply. However, if we run out of space, we will likely give preference to applicants who are willing to present.
Full presentations will last 20–30 minutes (TBD). Lightning talks will last 5 minutes.
We are planning to offer a few modest fellowships for individual who demonstrate need or who come from historically under-represented groups. We hope to procure more funding for future workshops. See the logistics page for more information about lodging and food (including discounted rates for nearby hotels).
Annually. (With your help)
Ed. Someone proposed Practicum in Environmental Economics and Data Science, but we decided to go in a different direction.
Please contact Ed Rubin with any additional questions.
