Workshop 1: DiadESLand – Research Gaming to Explore Alternate Management Scenarios for Migratory Fishes (15 person maximum)
Migratory amphihaline fish are threatened by climate change, with ecological and socio-economic consequences for local communities. This educational game explores alternative management scenarios, taking into account ecological and socio-economic aspects, as well as global impacts on the distribution of amphihaline migratory fish.
Workshop 2: The Robot Operating System (ROS) – Introduction and Demonstration (30 person maximum)
Almost every robot built in the last 15 years owes its success in part to the Robot Operating System. The technology underpinning it has wider value in research and industry. This workshop introduces ROS concepts, applications and interactive demonstrations using 'TurtleSim'.
Workshop 3: Journal Selection (30 person maximum)
Information to follow.
Workshop 4: How to Publish (30 person maximum)
Information to follow.
Workshop 5: Effects of the Deyr Rains in East Africa and Global Security (30 person maximum)
Presentation and Q&A about the effects of the Deyr Rains in Somalia and how this has resulted in mass displacement and a rise in violent extremism, as well as a rise in other war crimes such as gender-based violence, and how the NGOs, host nation, embassies and international militaries worked together to prevent further instability.
