ECSITE'13, the first EarthCube Summer Institute will be held August 12th - 16th, 2013, at the San Diego Supercomputer Center, University of California, San Diego. Funded by the National Science Foundation’s Geoinformatics program and the EarthCube program, ECSITE’13 builds upon eight years of the Cyberinfrastructure Summer Institute for Geoscientists, from 2004-2011.
ECSITE’13 will provide an introduction to data science concepts and topics, while also covering topics in computational science. The Institute is particularly encourages applications from early career faculty and researchers, specially those interested in carrying forward the concepts learned at ECSITE into their own research activities and to their classroom teaching, as well as graduate students and postdocs.
Demonstrations of existing systems and hands-on exercises will be utilized throughout to connect material covered in lectures to real-world examples.
Applications due July 2, 2013.
