The 2018 AGU Fall Meeting will be held 10-14 December 2018 in Washington, DC. This year the Earth and Space Science Informatics (ESSI) section will include a session that may be of special interest to Unidata community members: “IN015: Cloud-based workflows for reproducible research and education in geoscience.”
From the session description:
The growth of commercial and public cloud computing, and associated services, are enabling and demanding new approaches to executing geoscience. New software frameworks are providing opportunities for reproducible science where reproducibility has traditionally been difficult to impossible. Recent funding to improve scientific efficiency has accelerated development of tools to approach both commercial and publicly funded cloud computing. Advanced scientific workflows that keep pace with evolving software services are needed to ensure the geoscience community can realize efficiency from the dynamic and scalable computing and storage offered by cloud services.
This session focuses on workflow development that supports reproducible and scalable science, and science education, on cloud computing platforms. It measures the maturity of cloud-based workflows across geoscientific disciplines. Presentations focusing on methods that are generic with respect to choice of cloud platform, enable reproducibility, demonstrate scalable science, and harness the dynamic nature of cloud computing are especially encouraged.
The converners encourage you to consider contributing to this community discussion by submitting a short abstract for the session. Abstracts can be submitted here. The deadline to send an abstract is 1 August 2018, 11:59 P.M. EDT. Submissions received by the early deadline of 25 July have a chance to win a $100 US gift card. More information about abstract submissions is available in the Abstract Submission Overview.
