Cyberinfrastructure for
Environmental Research and Education

A Workshop Sponsored by the National Science Foundation
October 30 - November 1, 2002

Location: National Center for Atmospheric Research, Boulder, CO

Purpose: NCAR is hosting this workshop to assist the NSF in considering how it might most effectively craft programs to support the creation and use of new cyberinfrastructure capabilities to support environmental research and education over the next decade. This workshop is intended as an initial step in identifying key issues and means of addressing them. We do not intend to try and build a consensus for a fully defined proposal or plan, but rather to identify opportunities through stimulating a constructive dialogue among scientists and educators from different environmental communities, and between environmental scientists and information scientists and technologists.

The product of the workshop will be a white paper that examines opportunities for applying cyberinfrastructure in environmental research and education, identifies significant issues, and provides a roadmap for addressing key questions. The white paper will be submitted to NSF, published on the web, and presented at future scientific and technical conferences. Participation in this workshop is by invitation only.
