Exciting news! We're transitioning to the Statewide California Earthquake Center. Our new website is under construction, but we'll continue using this website for SCEC business in the meantime. We're also archiving the Southern Center site to preserve its rich history. A new and improved platform is coming soon!

EarthCube End-User Domain Workshop for EarthScope

Date: 09/05/2012

Forwarded workshop announcement from Mike Gurnis, Caltech:

Dear Colleague,

We invite you to attend this workshop to help the EarthScope community plan for the next generation of cyber infrastructure and provide vital input into NSF’s EarthCube program. The “EarthCube End-User Domain Workshop for EarthScope” will be held Oct. 29-30 on the campus of Arizona State University in Tempe Arizona. Participant support (travel, hotel and meals) will be provided for all confirmed participants.

This two-day workshop will assess the current state and needs of the cyberinfrastructure that facilitates realization of EarthScope’s science objectives. The workshop will provide timely and necessary guidance in the planning of NSF’s EarthCube (http://earthcube.ning.com/), a broader geoscience initiative in cyberinfrastructure. Interested members of the geoscience and information science communities are invited. Additional information on the workshop can be found at http://www.earthscope.org/earthcube

With invited talks and discussion, the workshop will address:

EarthScope (ES) science drivers, challenges, and use case scenarios
EarthScope cyberinfrastructure opportunities and challenges, with applications for EarthCube
ES simulation opportunities and challenges with broad applications for EarthCube
ES CI visioning. How can the needs of the EarthScope community mesh with the needs and resources of other communities working within EarthCube?

Apply to attend:
We invite members of relevant communities, especially early career scientists, to apply to attend:

On behalf of the EarthScope Cyberinfrastructure Subcommittee
