Subject: [Geo4All] CFP: 3rd NSF Workshop on Conceptualizing a National Geospatial Software Institute

Dear colleagues,

The National Science Foundation (NSF) has funded a project (http://gsi.cigi.illinois.edu) to conceptualize a national Geospatial Software Institute (GSI) as a long-term hub of excellence in software infrastructure for serving diverse research and education communities. To forward the strong momentum gained from two successful workshops, the third workshop will take place in the Washington DC area on January 27-29, 2019. January 27th is intended for an ice-breaking event on the evening so that most participants will be ready for the morning program on January 28th. Dr. Manish Parashar, the Director of the NSF’s Office of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure (OAC) will give the opening keynote on the morning of January 28th. We plan to wrap up the workshop by 1pm, EDT on January 29th.

We are inviting position papers: http://gsi.cigi.illinois.edu/workshop3/ due on October 31, 2018, and look forward to your submissions. If your position paper is selected, you will receive NSF travel support to attend the workshop. Your help for spreading the word is greatly appreciated.

Thanks & best,


On behalf of the project’s advisory and steering committees
