EarthCube: A Community-Driven Cyberinfrastructure for the Geosciences

Tuesday, 24 January 2017, 12:15–1:15 P.M.; Room 608
view in conference program

The EarthCube initiative is a community-driven activity aimed at transforming the conduct of geosciences research and education by creating a well-connected and facile environment for sharing and integrating data and knowledge across all geoscience disciplines in an open, transparent, and inclusive manner and to accelerate our ability to understand and predict the Earth system. After five years’ worth of community engagement and development activities, EarthCube is now transitioning into an implementation phase. This town hall will discuss the progress of EarthCube on a number of fronts and engage geoscientists in the future steps toward the development of geoscience cyberinfrastructure for research.
