TH33C. Earthcube: Community-Governed Cyberinfrastructure for the Geosciences

17 December 2014, 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

Moscone West - Room 2006

Event Type:

Town Hall

We invited those interested in joining a collaborative, user-driven effort to develop cyberinfrastructure for geosciences research. EarthCube is a community-driven approach to developing cyberinfrastructure to provide better discovery, access, and use of geoscience data, software, and models to enable researchers to better address science questions. This town hall will seek to engage geoscientists in the development of EarthCube by discussing opportunities for participation in the EarthCube Demonstration Governance phase. Our goal is to engage current, and potential, EarthCube stakeholders, especially academic geoscientists in the development of community-based decision making for creation of cyberinfrastructure for research.
