This workshop was brought to my attention by a colleague. The deadline seems to have passed but they write being willing to extend it. I thought this was perhaps something for Software/Data Carpentry to submit a contribution to? It seems to be they want papers, though, not just presentation abstracts:
But maybe something can be negotiated.

CFP DTW2016 workshop - 3rd RDA Workshop on Curricula and Teaching
Methods in Cloud Computing, Big Data, and Data Science
Dear IG members,
I want to invite your to submit paper to the 3rd RDA Workshop on
Curricula and Teaching Methods in Cloud Computing, Big Data, and Data
Science that will take place in Luxembourg in conjunction of the IEEE
CloudCom2016 conf on 12-15 Dec 2016
The initial deadline was set up for today but we are investigating
extension for 1-2 weeks.
The workshop is officially sponsored by RDA and EDISON project and
will be attended by few EU projects related to Research Infrastructure, Data
Science, Cloud Computing, e-Leadership and digital skills.
If you are interested to submit a paper, please send email to me and
to Tomasz Wiktorski. We will advise you on the extended deadline procedure.
Looking forward to your replies.
2016 Data Teaching Workshop – 3rd RDA Workshop on Curricula and
Teaching Methods in Cloud Computing, Big Data, and Data Science
as part of CloudCom 2016 (http://2016.cloudcom.org/), Luxembourg,
Dec 12th – 15th, 2016.
The emergence of Cloud Computing, Big Data, and Data (Intensive)
Science as specialized fields in computing is motivating development of new
books and courses to provide education in the techniques and technologies
needed to extract knowledge from large datasets in virtualized environment.
In current literature there is a lack of centralized learning resource for
beginners that would integrate administrative, programing, and algorithm
design aspects of related domains. We believe it is important to allow
students, researchers, and professionals to understand cross-domain aspects
of these challenges before they embark on further exploration of these fields.
The Research Data Alliance support for this workshop will bring
together wider community of scientists, researchers and practitioners and will
serve as a meeting point for all working on or interested in this area.
The workshop will be organizationally sponsored by the Horizon2020
project EDISON funded by European Community to coordinate Data Science
curricula development in Europe and international harmonization.
We plan to accept a small number of high quality contributions for
presentation during workshop, where appropriate extended with tutorial
elements. At the end of the workshop a forum discussion is planned to
debate on future directions of curricula and teaching methods in Cloud
Computing, Big Data, and Data Science
More information on workshop website: available after acceptance
Include but are not limited to the following areas applied to one of the
fields (Cloud Computing, Big Data, Data Science) or closely related to them:
-novel or updated curricula;
-novel or updated teaching methods, e.g. Bloom’s taxonomy for
new types of Computer Science and Big Data courses, flipped learning, etc ;
-review and presentation of novel teaching materials;
-review of methodologies;
-characterization of domain knowledge (Body of Knowledge);
-adoption as a part of institutional strategies;
-review and analysis of existing practices in the design,
implementation, and evaluation;
-multimedia and interactive components in residential and online
education, educational platforms, MOOCs and others;
-cooperation between universities/academia and industry in
delivering advanced education and leadership programs;
-implementation reports and lessons learnt;
-future trends and issues.
