We are glad to announce our next workshop report at the Department of Remote Sensing! On 10th of February, Martin Wegmann, Mirjana Bevanda, Pawel Kluter, and Marius Philipp (all Department of Remote Sensing at the University of Würzburg) will talk about “Potential, challenges, and caveats of webpages and social media in science”.
Embracing online presence such as webpages and social media can provide a huge potential for science. However, it is sometimes considered too complex and time-consuming without providing the same impact as e.g. conference participation. Within this seminar, we would like to critically discuss the value and challenges of online presentations of scientific content for Earth Observation colleagues and beyond. We like to outline the already achieved benefits of our online activities through diverse webpages and social media, as well as the future potential and challenges. Additionally, we will practically show how news can be posted and webpages can be build and that it can be achieved with little time and effort. Online presence should not be considered as a replacement for handing out business cards, doing networking or presenting research findings at conferences but as a great alternative for the time in-between.
