  Information - ESSI2 International Informatics Collaborations

Event Information
Science is a global enterprise and transcends national and continental boundaries. The same is true for the Internet and related tools and technologies. Understanding global environmental processes and their regional linkages has, for example, heightened the importance of full, open, and timely access to environmental data and strong international scientific partnerships enabled by the Internet and other network technologies like Grid computing. Furthermore, they require finding, collecting, integrating, and assimilating data and information from observations and model simulations from diverse fields and across traditional disciplinary boundaries. In addition to the increased globalization of science, the inherent complexities and interdisciplinary nature of environmental problems require that science be conducted collaboratively by distributed teams of investigators.

This session is aimed at both promoting awareness of cyberinfrastructure-enabled scientific partnerships as well as sharing of ideas on the importance of and modes for international collaborations in cyberinfrastructure to benefit geosciences education and research.
