Cyberinfrastructure Summer Institute for Geoscientists
San Diego Supercomputer Center
August 16-20, 2004
San Diego, CA

A week-long Cyberinfrastructure Summer Institute for Geoscientists (CSIG) will be held from August 16-21, 2004 at the San Diego Supercomputer Center, University of California, San Diego. The CSIG is designed to introduce geoscientists to commonly-used as well as emergent information technology (IT) tools.

Topics to be covered include Data Modeling, Web Services, and Geographic Information Systems. A brief introduction will also be provided to key concepts in Grid Computing, Parallel Programming, and Scientific Workflows, with a view towards covering these topics in more detail in a subsequent Institute offering.

If interested in attending the Institute, please submit a brief Statement of Interest explaining its potential value to your research and education activities by clicking the "Apply Here" link on the menu to the left. While the Institute is open to everyone, graduate students and postdocs are especially encouraged to apply. A maximum of 40 attendees will be selected from the pool of applicants.

While funding will be available to cover local expenses, attendees will be responsible for making their own travel arrangements to and from San Diego.
