Announcement - Campus Bridging Technologies Workshop calls for papers, registration

Registration for the Workshop on Software and Services for Campus Bridging, which will take place 26-27 August 2010 in Denver, Colorado, is now open. The organizers of the NSF-sponsored event also invite members of the community to share their experiences by submitting abstracts, which are due 23 August 2010.

This workshop is held under the auspices of the NSF ACCI Campus Bridging Taskforce (CBTF) and focuses on the role of cyberinfrastructure software and services for campus bridging. As laid out in the National Science Foundation’s “Cyberinfrastructure Vision for 21st Century Discovery,” cyberinfrastructure is a key and necessary component to support science and engineering; campus bridging is the integrated use of user-local cyberinfrastructure with other cyberinfrastructure on the user’s campus, at other campuses, and the regional, national, and international levels as if they were proximate to the user. Bridging is critical to supporting the ever-increasing level of cross-disciplinary and cross-organizational aspects of scientific research.

The goal of the workshop is to capture current best practices and gaps for cyberinfrastructure software and services for campus bridging in order to steer future policy and planning for cyberinfrastructure across the NSF community. Specially, we aim to address the following two goals of the CBTF from its charter:

  1. Suggest common elements of software stacks widely usable across nation/world to promote interoperability/economy of scale.
  2. Suggested policy documents that any research university have in place.

This workshop follows on to the successful workshop held in April of 2010 in Indianapolis, which focused on Networking and Data-centric bridging issues as they apply to Campus Bridging.

Registration: Registration is open and is first come, first serve. Space is limited, please register early. Please see the conference website to register.

Call for Abstracts: The organizing committee is strongly encouraging members of the user community, campus research computing staff and cyberinfrastructure operators to participate and share their experiences. A limited number of slots are open for short presentations. To apply for a presentation slot, please submit a 1-2 page abstract (details at the workshop website) describing the presentation. A limited amount of travel funding is available for selected speakers; travel reimbursement can be requested during registration for the workshop.

Venue: This workshop will be held in downtown Denver, CO, convenient by plane from anywhere in the US. The workshop itself will be held in the Sheraton Downtown Denver, convenient to the many attractions of downtown Denver.

Student Scholarships: In order to broaden participation and drive an educational component, the organizing committee has a limited number of student scholarships to cover travel costs for students for the workshop. To apply, students should submit a 1-page CV and brief description of previous experience and future plans for working with cyberinfrastructure.
