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 facilities
Semantic representation and integration including Linked Open Data and efficient query and integration techniques
Frameworks and methodologies for handling big data in science applications
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. can be found at the workshop website - http://geo-bigdata.github.io/ <http://geo-bigdata.github.io/>
We look forward to seeing you in Santa Clara . If you feel like tweeting about the event please use the hashtag #geobigdata15
