Internet2 and NSF Announce Selection of First-Phase Research Proposals for Exploring Clouds for Acceleration of Science (E-CAS) Project

Internet2 and the National Science Foundation (NSF) confirmed the selection of six proposals for the first phase of the Exploring Clouds for Acceleration of Science (E-CAS) project that was first  announced in November 2018.  The E-CAS project comprises two phases of NSF-funded, campus-based research that will be supported in part through contributions from Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud to produce a deeper understanding of the use of cloud computing in accelerating...

NSF Cyber Carpentry: Data Life-Cycle Training (two week summer workshop opportunity for postdocs, doctoral students, and domain/computational/information scientists)

Massive data collections (i.e., “Big Data”) have ushered in a paradigm shift in the way scientific research is conducted and new knowledge is discovered. The traditional observe-hypothesize-test model of small-scale scientific endeavor is increasingly augmented and in some cases supplanted with collaborative scientific research applying complex patterns of data integration and analysis involving multi-disciplinary teams from distributed organizations brought together to solve a common...
