Proposal Development - Office of Research & Sponsored Projects is having a workshop for students interested in applying for an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship on August 9, 2011

Abstract submissions for oral and poster presentations are due August 4th.

The sesstion entitled “IN12. Cyberinfrastructure that Advances Understanding of Ecosystem Processes“ is chaired by Dr. John Gamon from U. Alberta and Cyber-ShARE's PI, Dr. Craig Tweedie. The AGU Fall meeting will be in San Francisco, December 5-9.

Description of session: Advances in cyberinfrastructure (CI) are facilitating a paradigm shift in the ecological sciences. New data and processing capacities for answering challenging questions are being generated, a range of new and scalable sensor technologies are being implemented, needs for free access to data are being met, and education programs in cyberinfrastructure science have been developed. We welcome presentations related to these topics and other CI that demonstrate capacities for improving management of data life-cycle - from capture, to analysis and visualization, and delivery - and the advancement of scientific networks in the environmental sciences.

The EPA has immediate openings for recent graduates with BS and/or MS degrees.

Deadline to apply is August 1, 2011

August 8-12, 2011, San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC)

Anticipated appointment date: Fall 2011

The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) in coordination with the Cyber-ShARE Center of Excellence (http://cybershare.utep.edu) is seeking applicants for a tenured/tenure-track faculty position to support the growth of the Center's inderdisciplinary, Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM)-centered research efforts in cyberinfrastructure. Anticipated appointment date is Fall 2011.

UTEP's NSF CREST Cyber-ShARE Center of Excellence, Computational Science Program, and Department of Computer Science in collaboration with NMSU's NSF CREST Center for Research Excellence in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology are pleased to announce that UTEP has been selected as a hosting site of the Virtual School of Computational Science and Engineering (VSCSE) for the summer course “Big Data for Science.”

VSCSE was created as a result of the Blue Waters Project – an NSF-funded collaboration between NCSA and IBM. The course, which is open to the public, will cover cutting-edge techniques and technologies, such as cloud computing, semantic web, and visualization, which are critical for dealing with the enormous digital data sets generated by research activities in various fields including Astronomy, Bioinformatics, and Earth Science.

The course will be delivered in high-definition video within a highly interactive environment and will be based on case studies and hands-on laboratories. The instructors will be Dr. Geoffrey C. Fox and Dr. Judy Qiu. Dr. Fox is a distinguished scientist and director of the Community Grids Lab (CGL) of the Pervasive Technology Institute of Indiana University. Dr. Qiu is the assistant director of CGL.
