Cyberinfrastructure Summer Institute for Geoscientists

GEON will again host a Cyberinfrastructure Summer Institute for Geoscientists (CSIG) in 2005.

Published 05/03/2005

This year's CSIG will be held July 18-22 at the San Diego Supercomputer Center, University of California, San Diego. This week long, hands-on course will be designed to introduce geoscientists to commonly used and emergent information technology (IT) tools.

Topics to be covered include data modeling, Web Services, and geographic information systems. A brief introduction will also be provided to key concepts in grid computing, parallel programming, and scientific workflows. While the Institute is open to everyone, graduate students and post docs are especially encouraged to apply.

This CSIG is made possible through funding provided by the National Science Foundation. Participants' local expenses (on-campus accommodations and meals) will be paid for, as well as all CSIG-related materials. Travel arrangements and expenses will be the responsibility of each participant.

Further information and on-line registration can be accessed via the GEON website. The application deadline for this CSIG is June 13, 2005.

For further information, please contact Ms. Margaret Banton, GEON Project Coordinator.
