Good Morning!

Lot's going on around the Federation. A few events to note this week -
Cloud Computing and Semantic Web will have calls Monday, Tuesday,  Bob
Simons (Environmental Research Division, NOAA Southwest Fisheries Science
Center) will talk about ERDDAP on Wednesday at the OneNOAA Science Seminar
and on Thursday the Wilson Center is presenting a seminar on crowdsourcing
and USAID - both available virtually.

This update also has two student opportunities available. This is the last
day to apply for the ESIP Energy and Climate graduate fellowship. The San
Diego Super Computing Center is hosting it's ninth Cyberinfrastructure
Summer Institute for Geoscientists (CSIG’12) - Applications are due by July
2 (full details at the end of this note).

*SDSC to Host Summer Institute for Geosciences August 6-10 **Applicants
Asked to Apply by **July 2*

** **

The San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at the University of California,
San Diego, will host its ninth annual Cyberinfrastructure Summer Institute
for Geoscientists (CSIG’12) August 6-10. Since 2004, CSIG has been funded
each year by a grant from the Earth Science Division (EAR) of the National
Science Foundation (NSF).****

** **

The theme for CSIG’12 is “Geoinformatics Education and Training for the
21st Century Geoscience Workforce,” reflecting the emphasis on preparing
geoscientists for cyber-enabled research and education initiatives.****

** **

As in prior years, CSIG’12 will cover a broad cross-section of information
technology areas and their impact on science and education, while also
providing in-depth presentations on selected technical topics. While the
program is still being finalized, coverage of technical topics will include
data discovery, access, and mining; data and system interoperability;
service-oriented architectures; high-performance computing; and cloud

** **

One example of a geoscience cyberinfrastructure project to be presented at
CSIG’12 is OpenTopography<http://applicants%20asked%20to%20apply%20by%20june%2015/>,
a cyber-enabled earth science facility. This year, CSIG will emphasize key
cyberinfrastructure concepts being discussed as part of NSF’s new
EarthCube<http://www.nsf.gov/geo/earthcube/> initiative,
whose goal is to “transform the conduct of research by supporting the
development of community-guided cyberinfrastructure to integrate data and
information for knowledge management across the Geosciences.”  CSIG’12
organizers plan to invite some of the individuals engaged in the design of
EarthCube as CSIG instructors.****

** **

“This is the ninth year we are organizing CSIG,” said Chaitan Baru, a
distinguished scientist at SDSC and principal investigator for CSIG.
“Overall, the program has received high ratings from attendees. In addition
to the course material, participants have particularly enjoyed their
interactions with fellow attendees, some of which have led to follow-on
successful collaborations.”****

** **

Graduate students, postdocs, faculty, and professionals in geoscience and
related disciplines are invited to attend CSIG’12 by completing the application
form <http://www.geongrid.org/index.php/education/summer_institute> found
on the GEON website. Applications submitted prior to July 2 have priority
for scholarships and notification of acceptance will be provided by July 6.
Applications submitted after July 2 will be reviewed and accepted based on
availability. Space is limited to 40 attendees.  Accepted applicants will
be expected to present a five-minute “lightning talk” on their work related
to a geoinformatics area. Participants are also welcome to bring a poster
to share during an informal session on the first afternoon of the workshop,
(Monday, August 6).****

** **

CSIG’12 is being held during the same week as the SDSC Summer


*Fall AGU* *2012 *- Sessions have been
posted<http://fallmeeting.agu.org/2012/session-search/>and abstracts
are due Aug. 8.

Have a good week!
