Deadline for deadline for the EC3 projectâ€™s Field Forum Application (Yosemite in August) - TODAY
This summer (Aug. 4-8
) we are taking a fieldtrip to Yosemite and Owens Valley to discuss cyberinfrastructure. We want to get Computer Scientists and Geologist talking about best practices associated with workflows that can better facilitate the pathways of data from the field and into our databases. And of course, the best place to have these conversations is in the field.
This fieldtrip is associated with the NSF-funded, RCN project: EC3 â€“ Earth-Centered Communication for Cyberinfrastructure: The application is very short and easy to fill out, but the dead line is approaching rapidly (TODAY!)
Email Matty Mookerjee (firstname.lastname@example.org) by the end of the day on March 10th. For all details and application see their workspace: http://workspace.earthcube.org/ec3
