Panel Report and Discussion on Recent NSF EarthCube Charette
According to the EarthCube web site, http://earthcube.ning.com/, "The goal of EarthCube is to transform the conduct of research by supporting the development of community-guided cyberinfrastructure to integrate data and information for knowledge management across the Geosciences."
During November 1 - 4, 2011, the NSF held the EarthCube Charette in Washington, D.C. The Charette was intended to be "the first stage in an iterative process to build a community-based cyberinfrastructure," and an "opportunity for face-to-face interaction and feedback among groups that are suggesting designs for EarthCube and a broad, diverse set of the geosciences and cyberinfrastructure communities."
Panel members for our meeting are Charette attendees who will share their thoughts and experiences. Perhaps we'll finally understand the answer to the question, "What is a charette, anyway?"
