Subject: [ESIP-all] Big Data in the Geosciences - IEEE Big Data Conference


A second workshop being held at the 2015 IEEE International Big Data
Conference that may be of interest to the ESIP community.

Big Data in the Geosciences


We are pleased to announce the forthcoming Big Data in the Geosciences
Workshop, which will be co-located at the IEEE International Big Data
Conference on Oct 29th - Nov 01st, 2015 in Santa Clara, CA, USA

The workshop focuses on highlighting the state-of-the-art research
surrounding Big Data in the geosciences. We seek to engage the scientific
community in understanding their big data challenges and problems. Finally,
we aim to identify gaps in current technologies as well as gaps in the
education of new data scientists. This workshop will provide a venue for
participants to showcase innovative tools and services, build new
collaborations, and hear from application scientists and educators about the
challenges they face.

Topics of Interest include, but are not limited to the following:

*	Big Data in Geosciences - needs, requirements, and use cases
*	Big Data infrastructure being developed and deployed at science
*	Semantic representation and integration including Linked Open Data
and efficient query and integration techniques
*	Frameworks and methodologies for handling big data in science
*	Data analytics utilized/needed for data reduction,
cross-heterogeneous data analysis, and science reserch
*	Use of Big Data technologies (e.g. Hadoop and NoSQL) for science
*	Visualization of scientific Big Data
*	Big Data and Data Science education in the geosciences

More information, including the official call for proposals, logistics, etc.
