I am very pleased to announce that GEON will again host a
Cyberinfrastructure Summer Institute for Geoscientists (CSIG) in 2005.
This year's CSIG will be held July 18-22 at the San Diego Supercomputer
Center, University of California, San Diego.  This week long, hands-on
course will be designed to introduce geoscientists to commonly used and
emergent information technology (IT) tools.

Topics to be covered include data modeling, Web Services, and geographic
information systems. A brief introduction will also be provided to key
concepts in grid computing, parallel programming, and scientific
workflows. While the Institute is open to everyone, graduate students
and post docs are especially encouraged to apply. 

This CSIG is made possible through funding provided by the National
Science Foundation (http://www.nsf.gov).  Participants' local expenses
(on-campus accomodations and meals) will be paid for, as well as all
CSIG-related materials.  Travel arrangements and expenses will be the
responsibility of each participant.

Further information and on-line registration can be accessed via the
GEON website at http://www.geongrid.org/CSIG05/.  The application
deadline for this CSIG is June 13, 2005.

Please feel free to forward this announcement to anyone you think may be
interested in this program.
