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: https://goo.gl/FKu52x
We have set up a wiki for the event as well: http://organicdatacuration.org/is-geo/index.php/Main_Page
Access to slides and materials is available at: https://github.com/IS-GEO/Materials
Follow the notes of the meeting here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1tIk9GKx66MKWLWB2_CP9BIUL9jIi4TQpoHCu5_PIPXk/edit?usp=sharing
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!
A result of the initial workshop in March 2015 was a comprehensive report with findings from the workshop. In the subsequent months the report was presented at multiple meetings and venues as outreach to the community.

COMBINING KNOWLEDGE IN INTELLIGENT SYSTEMS WITH GEOSCIENCES TO EXPLORE AN EMERGING SET OF RESEARCH OPPORTUNITIES
Authors: Pierce, SA, Tikoff, B, Gil, Y.
Presentation for GSA 2015, Baltimore, MD
Session # 324: .Geoinformatics
Wednesday, 4 November 2015: 01:30 PM – 05:30 PM, Baltimore Convention Center, Room 349/350
(Slides in powerpoint IS-GEO_GSA15 and pdf IS-GEO_GSA15)
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.
