A week-long workshop held at the University of California, San Diego that focuses on a broad spectrum of introductory-to-intermediate topics in High Performance Computing and Data Science. The program is aimed at researchers in academia and industry, especially in domains not traditionally engaged in supercomputing, who have problems that cannot typically be solved using local computing resources. This year’s Summer Institute continues SDSC’s strategy of bringing High Performance Computing to the Long Tail of Science, i.e. providing resources to a larger number of modest-sized computational research projects that represent, in aggregate, a tremendous amount of scientific progress.
The registration fee is $300 and includes coffee and lunch, it is due only after the application is accepted.

Projects supported by the Higher Education Challenge Grants Program will: (1) address a state, regional, national, or international educational need; (2) involve a creative or non-traditional approach toward addressing that need that can serve as a model to others; (3) encourage and facilitate better working relationships in the university science and education community, as well as between universities and the private sector, to enhance program quality and supplement available resources; and (4) result in benefits that will likely transcend the project duration and USDA support.
The Software Carpentry workshop, sponsored by CEREO and WSU’s Graduate and Professional Student Association is another two-day, hands-on event geared towards those interested in developing core skills for working with data effectively and reproducibly. This workshop covers how to use the command line, git, and building programs in R (e.g. functions, loops). Participants work through short tutorials and practical exercises done via live coding. No prior experience with R or programming is necessary. This workshop will be held 6–7 April 2017. Register today

Purpose: to prepare for future environmental challenges by enhancing community capacity to plan and implement resiliency projects and improve the protections afforded by natural ecosystems by investing in green infrastructure and other measures. The program will focus on water quality and quantity declines, forest health concerns, and sea level rise. The program will emphasize community inclusion and assistance to traditionally underserved populations in vulnerable areas.
Funding priorities for this program include:
- High-impact resiliency adaptations to help communities prepare for fire in the U.S. West, floods and droughts in the Mid-West, and sea-level rise on the Eastern seaboard.
- Community demonstration and capacity-building projects that help communities understand environmental risks and opportunities and organize and take actions to improve local resiliency by enhancing natural buffers and system functions.

Location: Washington State University: CUE 518
Keynote Address: Dr. Dan Spencer, University of Montana
The interdisciplinary Spring 2017 EARThS Conference seeks papers that address such questions from graduate students in the humanities, social sciences, and biophysical sciences at University of Idaho and Washington State University. Ideal papers will focus on case studies or cross-sectional analyses of (1) creative approaches to examine the past, present, or future of environmental issues or (2) interdisciplinary efforts that seek to address or adapt to such problems in local, regional, national, and/or international venues.
We have attached the abstract submission form and we encourage everyone to apply. Abstract submissions are due by March 10th and can be emailed to email@example.com. You are also welcome to forward the call for abstracts to other researchers you think might be interested.
