Event to Explore Large-Scale, Data Intensive Computing Applications
The San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at the University of California, San Diego, will host the 8th annual Cyberinfrastructure Summer Institute for Geoscientists (CSIG’11) on August 8–12, with the theme this year being “Big Data and Big Computing in the Geosciences.”
The theme for CSG’11 underscores the need in the geosciences to effectively manage extremely large and heterogeneous data that originate from a wide variety of sources, including sensor networks and observing platforms, as well as simulation data produced by large-scale integrative models running on large computing platforms.
CSIG’11 is designed for researchers interested in the area of geoinformatics and the use of cyberinfrastructure in the geosciences. The program welcomes advanced graduate students, postdocs, faculty, and researchers. Prospective attendees are required to complete an online application form available at: http://www.geongrid.org/csig11 An event flyer is attached.
The deadline for application submission is June 24, 2011. Funding for the Institute will cover local expenses for all accepted participants. However, attendees are expected to cover their own travel to the UC San Diego campus.
