The application deadline for this year's Cyberinfrastructure Summer
Institute for Geoscientists 2008 (CSIG '08) is June 2nd, less than two weeks
The year's CSIG will be held from August 11-15, 2008, on the University of
California, San Diego campus.  This week-long program is designed to provide
participants an introduction to commonly-used as well as emergent
information technology (IT) tools via lectures, hands-on experience, and Q &
A sessions.  Topics to be covered include: an introduction to
geoinformatics; data integration challenges; data sharing portals and
networks; remote-sensing data (including LiDAR); Service Oriented
Architecture and Web Services; and visualization of 3D and 4D data.
Graduate students and post docs, as well as university faculty and
instructors with the goal of promoting the development of curricula and
courses in geoinformatics, are highly encouraged to apply.  Please forward
this information to anyone you know who may be interested in this valuable
educational opportunity.
Support from the National Science Foundation enables GEON to offer this
course without a registration fee, as well as provides for on-campus housing
and meals for all accepted participants, throughout the week.  Participants
are responsible for the cost of their transportation to the University of
California, San Diego campus.  
Further information, including the current CSIG Program and online
Registration can be found at http://www.geongrid.org/CSIG08/ .  To ensure
consideration for this year's Institute, please submit an application on or
before the June 2nd deadline.  Please feel free to direct any additional
questions that you might have regarding the CSIG '08 to me, as the organizer
of this program.
Best regards and I hope to see some of you in August.
