PARSEC WS #7, 3-7 July, 2023

at CESAB – FRB, Montpellier, France

The last workshop for the PARSEC project will be held at the Centre for the Synthesis and Analysis of Biodiversity, which has hosted the leadership for the synthesis activity in the PARSEC project. We expect many of our members will be able to attend in person, but the meeting will allow those who can only come remotely to participate.

We last visited CESAB in 2019 for our first workshop. Since then, despite the challenges that were placed in our way by covid 19 restrictions, we have published several papers some of which are listed on this web site (e.g. Machicao et al. 2022 doi: 10.1029/2022EA002379), published associated codes, participated in many conferences, and published many data science guidance documents for researchers. The guidance documents and conference presentations, consistent with the open nature of PARSEC, can all be found in the PARSEC zenodo community). We are proud that many are in a number of languages reflective of our culturally diverse group.

We have more work to accomplish and papers to finalise, which will make this meeting critical to the PARSEC legacy.

We are most grateful for additional funding from IUGS and UNESCO to support the attendance of two early career scientists.
