Hello ESIP Friends,
I'm excited to share info on this session being convened by Dawn Wright, Lesley Wyborn, and Shaowen Wang (you might have seen this too through other channels - ESIP is a well-connected community!)
Would you like to submit an abstract to a session on CyberGIS at the AGU Fall Meeting 2015?

CyberGIS is about developing a new software framework for GIS that effectively exploits the cloud and if required, can move onto (or simultaneously exploit) HPC for more efficient analysis of really large spatial data sets.


Well here are the details: IN014: CyberGIS: Bursting onto the Cloud and Thundering Beyond to High-Performance Computing

Session Description:

This session explores practical approaches for establishing a fundamentally new software framework via seamless integration of cyberinfrastructure, GIS, and spatial analysis/modeling capabilities. This has been explored through the lens of cyberGIS, which has emerged from the realm of the desktop and the isolated, on-premise server to that of more pervasive, distributed computing, including high-performance computing (HPC) and the cloud.

We welcome papers from those seeking to parallelize GIS to make it work more effectively in HPC environments, for high-resolution environmental data sets on big petascale data platforms. Once able to master the cloud and parallelizing both data and applications, HPC is an achievable goal. We also welcome papers from those using cyberGIS to further many aspects of data stewardship, such as tracking provenance, standards-based workflows, added value, and credit through the data lifecycle; scaling of complex processes; and long-term data management as a fundamental part of the scientific method.

You will be joined by Invited Presenters:

Carol Song, Director of Scientific Solutions, ITaP Research Computing, Purdue U.

David Tarboton, Hydrology Research Group, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Utah State U.

Rich Signell, USGS and US Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS)

Praveen Kumar, Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering, U. of Illinois-Urbana-Champaign and Director, Critical Zone Observatory for Intensively Managed Landscapes
