The goal of the workshop is to synthesize a vision and needs for intelligent systems research that will provide new capabilities to advance geosciences. In geosciences, the workshop will cover requirements from Earth, ocean, polar, and atmospheric and spatial sciences. In intelligent systems, the workshop will include participation from fields such as information integration, machine learning, knowledge representation, social computing, visualization, and intelligent user interfaces. The workshop will be informed by existing cyberinfrastructure efforts that support the geoscience community. The workshop will serve as a bridge to get these communities talking to one another and explore collaborative research. The workshop will provide a forum for geosciences and computer scientists to formulate a research agenda for intelligent systems that will result in fundamentally new capabilities for understanding the Earth system.
