IS-GEO RCN kickoff meeting on January

The IS-GEO RCN kickoff meeting will happen on Wed Jan 18 to Fri Jan 20 2017 at UT Austin (Friday will be a half day).

We would like all attendees to organize sessions and lead RCN activities, and have already assigned some of the participants to chair and organize some of the sessions.

The agenda for the meeting can be found here:

We have set up a wiki for the event as well:

Access to slides and materials is available at:

Follow the notes of the meeting here:

Remote access is available via a Zoom meeting all 3 days. 

When: Jan 18 – 20, 2017 8:30 AM Central Time (US and Canada) 

You will need to ‘register’ the first time you access the meeting: 

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting and this information should be the same for all three days.

The IS-GEO community is active and growing!

Since the initial workshop in March 2015, the group completed a comprehensive report with findings from the workshop, as well as presenting at multiple meetings and continuing the conversations.

Please submit contributions and items you would like share with the group to:

IS-GEO at AGU 2016

IS-GEO will open the 2016 AGU conference!
There are several IS-GEO activities at AGU. The IS-GEO session was selected to open the conference with lightning talks (a new format) on December 12th, Monday at 8am.
A poster session will follow that afternoon.
There is an RCN meeting on Monday evening at 6:30 pm (Marriott Marquis, in Foothills Room E). We will go as late as everyone wants and plan to get dinner and drinks afterwards.  We hope to see many of you at these sessions!  Please join us at the session and feel free to invite other folks that you think may be interested.

IS­-GEO: Intelligent Systems Research to Support Geosciences

Please submit your abstracts for GSA 2015 to the IS-GEO Session

Session Description: This session will present advances in our understanding of the Earth system through innovative cyberinfrastructure that pushes the envelope on information systems research. Presentations will explore approaches that leverage Intelligent Systems (IS) to tackle heterogeneous data integration and visualization problems, as well as ontological reasoning with scientific metadata and mathematical models. Specific examples are expected to incorporate the current state of Intelligent Systems for Geosciences (IS­GEO) projects with forward­looking summaries from the IS­GEO community of practitioners and researchers. Addressing Intelligent Systems for Geosciences (IS­GEO) challenges requires collaboration among researchers from geosciences and information systems. Presentations in the ISGEO session are expected to merge ongoing efforts of the EarthCube initiative with technological advances across the geosciences.
