Leading cyberinfrastructure researchers will gather for a workshop in Arlington, VA, on August 31 – September 1, 2015, to initiate new collaborations, encourage networking, and to provide guidance on how to further build the community of cyberinfrastructure researchers. The effort is funded by the National Science Foundation’s Division of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure (ACI). Coordination of the NSF-funded workshop is a joint effort by Purdue University, University of Kansas, and Rochester Institute of Technology and is drawing top cyberinfrastructure faculty from prestigious institutions in the nation to present and discuss challenges and research results in specific areas.
The objectives of this workshop are to bring together the community of NSF ACI CAREER researchers to initiate new collaborations, encourage networking, and to provide guidance to NSF on how to further build the community of cyberinfrastructure researchers. This workshop will feature keynote speakers to address research and educational challenges at five critical areas of cyberinfrastructure:
In addition to the keynote sessions and the discussions that will follow, there will be a breakout session that will serve as a forum for attendees to present work from their CAREER projects in order to facilitate new connections and collaborations among researchers.
