Where in the World is CS Faculty: Dr. Jim Bowring and Gabrielle Cozart Attend C4P Community Development Event in Boulder, Colorado

Dr. Jim Bowring, Assistant Professor and Principal Investigator for CIRDLES, and Gabrielle Cozart, undergraduate researcher/lead developer for CHRONI, have been invited to attend Collaboration and Cyberinfrastructure for Paleogeosciences – Community Development Event (C4P-CDE).  The workshop will be held June 20th-21st, 2016 at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado.  

The specific goals for C4P-CDE are:

  • Provide an opportunity for individuals to learn about specific geoscientific resources;
  • Provide a forum for users to discuss use cases and scenarios with project teams, and begin developing new ideas or tools in a supportive environment;
  • Create space for hands-on working time for individuals interested in building resources that help span PBDB, Neotoma, and allied cyberinfrastructure resources including SESAR, NOAA Paleo, Open Core Data, LiPD, DarwinCore, VertNet, STEPPE, and/or iDigPaleo;
  • Engage early career scientists and other scientific users with these resources and give them time to explore and develop research applications;
  • Provide a forum for informal conversations and learning opportunities among scientific users, project teams, and developers;
  • Develop tools to facilitate the long-term care and accessibility of data and samples (in compliance with emerging publisher’s and granting agency policies) such as the submission of data to trusted repositories and IGSN registration.

C4P is a Research Coordination Network funded by the EarthCube initiative within the National Science Foundation.  C4P focuses on the development and deployment of standards for aggregation and dissemination of paleogeoscience data, with the goal of facilitating research focused on the ecology and evolution of life through time.
