EarthCube iSamplES & CP4 AGU Early Career Forum

Nov 2014. The iSamplES and C4P (Collaboration and Cyberinfrastructure for Paleogeoscience) Research Coordination Networks will be holding a joint event at AGU for early career scientists who deal with samples in their research.

 

This is a lunchtime forum to meet and discuss creating and storing digital sample information, whether earth materials samples are solid, liquid, or gas, or even experimental run products. We will chat about developing best practices for sampling and preserving sample information to make our growing collections easily manageable and more useful.

 

When: Thursday December 18, 2014 12:15pm-13:45pm
Where: At AGU, San Francisco, CA

 

Lunch will be provided, plus a limited number of stipends (cost of early registration) will be available to those who register for and participate in the forum.

 

This forum is for graduate students and early career scientists (those within five years of completion of a Ph.D). The project is sponsored by the NSF Earthcube Research Coordination Networks iSamplES and C4P (Collaboration and Cyberinfrastructure for Paleogeoscience). The results will help guide planning and development of an “internet of physical samples” for the earth sciences.
