A week-long Cyberinfrastructure
Summer Institute for Geoscientists (CSIG) was held from
July 18-22, 2005 at the San Diego Supercomputer Center,
University of California, San Diego. The CSIG was designed
to introduce geoscientists to commonly-used as well as emergent
information technology (IT) tools.
Topics covered include Data Modeling, Web Services, and Geographic Information Systems. A brief introduction was also 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.
This CSIG was made possible through funding provided by NSF (http://www.nsf.gov).
