Session Abstract

The U.S. National Science Foundation and numerous other research funding agencies around the world have begun initiatives to create, deploy, and apply a new generation of advanced cyberinfrastructure that holds promise to revolutionize the conduct of scientific and engineering research and allied education. Cyberinfrastructure includes supercomputers, data management systems, high capacity networks, digitally-enabled observatories and scientific instruments, and an interoperable suite of software and middleware services and tools for computation, visualization, and collaboration. The NSF has now developing and requesting community comment on an emerging Vision for 21st Century Discovery (http://www.nsf.gov/od/oci/ci_v5.pdf based on cyberinfrastructure. It has created a new directorate-level Office of Cyberinfrastructure to help instantiate this vision across all of the NSF community. This talk will present background for these developments, share the vision as developed to date, and describe opportunities and challenges these developments offer to the future of numerous stakeholders groups, including those providing advance CI services such as Internet2. Questions and discussion are welcome.
