Environmental Research and Education
Workshop Sponsored by the National Science Foundation
October 30 - November 1, 2002
National Center for Atmospheric Research, Boulder, CO
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.
