Environmental Research and Education
Workshop Sponsored by the National Science Foundation
October 30 - November 1, 2002
NSF Blue Ribbon Advisory Committee on Cyberinfrastructure is recommending
major increases in the support for cyberinfrastructure activities across
multiple disciplines as a means of "revolutionizing science and engineering".
The NSF Advisory Committee
on Environmental Research and Education (ERE) has laid out an ambitious
research agenda focused on coupled human and natural systems, coupled
biological and physical systems, and people and technology as interdisciplinary
environmental research frontiers for the next decade, and identifies cyberinfrastructure
as a key enabling technology to support science and education that addresses
these areas. Our workshop is intended to begin addressing the intersection
of these two reports.
cyberinfrastructure priorities for environmental research and education
will be a complex process. Our premise is that a workshop that gathers
leading members from the environmental research and education and information
science and technology communities to consider needs and opportunities
will be a valuable initial step in identifying issues and developing recommendations
for consideration in NSF program planning, as well as further elaboration
in subsequent more focused analyses and workshops.
