The publication of observations and results of scientific activities for the purpose of analysis, use and reuse is the focus of Open Data Science. Today there are international initiatives fostering open and innovative science, which focus on promoting an open, secure, persistent, and robust access to scientific data.

The main objective of this workshop is to promote the spread of knowledge about national and international initiatives concerning open data science, which can contribute to solving some of the challenges in the contemporary context of Open Data Science in Brazil.

This first Workshop on Open Data Science will present two projects that organize terrestrial data monitoring: the DataOne project ( ), supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF-US) and the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement Program - ARM ( ), supported by the US Department of Energy. There will be lectures open to the public in the morning of November 18th by Prof. Suzie Allard (University of Tennessee - UT), Prof. Mike frame (United States Geological Survey - USGS) and Prof. Giri Palanisamy (Oak Ridge National Laboratory – ORNL). In the afternoon of 18th and during the day of November 19th, data visualization experiments will be performed using computer-aided techniques and tools developed by the ARM project for an audience of predefined researchers.

This workshop has been organized by researchers from the Escola Politécnica da Universidade de São Paulo (EPUSP), with support of Centro de Estudos, Sociedade e Tecnologia (CEST) and will take place at the Centro de Tecnologia da Informação de São Paulo (CeTI-SP) on the campus of São Paulo, USP, on November 18th and 19th, 2015.
