2010 Cyberinfrastructure Summer Institute for Geoscientists (CSIG) at SDSC, Aug 9-13

May 25, 2010

We are pleased to announce the 7th Cyberinfrastructure Summer Institute for Geoscientists (CSIG) to be held August 9-13 at the San Diego Supercomputer Center on the University of California, San Diego campus.

General and program information, as well as online registration is available at http://www.geongrid.org/csig10.

The broad theme for CSIG'10 will be emergent Geoinformatics approaches to 3D and 4D integration of geoscience data. Given the diverse interests of past CSIG participants, and based on feedback that they have provided, CSIG'10 will feature two "tracks" of instruction:

1. Build Track: Overview of the technologies utilized to develop earth science cyberinfrastructure; and
2. Education Track: Utilization of cyberinfrastructure-based data systems and tools in geoscience education and research.

Interested applicants at all levels are encouraged to apply, including graduate students, postdocs, faculty, and professionals in earth science and related disciplines. You will have the option to choose the track of primary interest at the time of application.

Course registration and accommodations are paid for with support received from the National Science Foundation. However, please note that participants will be responsible for funding their own travel to San Diego for the Institute.

The Registration Deadline for the CSIG '10 is June 6th. Registration can be found at http://www.geongrid.org/csig10.

Please forward this information to anyone that may be interested in this year's CSIG. Questions should be directed to summerinstitute@geongrid.org
