NSF Cyberscience Grand Challenges Webcast

April 20, 2010

A Task Force organized by NSF on Cyberscience Grand Challenges and Implications for Cyberinfrastructure is organizing a webcast for April 22. The invitation from that Task Force is below: Dear CS&E Colleagues,
Presentations from the NSF Workshop on Cyberscience Grand Challenges and Implications for Cyberinfrastructure will be webcast live on Thursday April 22, 2010 from 8:30am - 12:00 noon U.S. Eastern time. The workshop agenda can be found here:

The plenary sessions on Thursday afternoon and Friday will also be webcast.
This workshop is being organized by the NSF Task Force on Grand Challenge Communities and Virtual Organizations. The goal of the workshop is to present the Task Force's preliminary findings and recommendations and solicit input from the national computational science and engineering community. If all goes well, we plan to webcast the event using a combination of technologies including teleconferencing, EVO, and Adobe Connect. Instructions for using EVO are provided at the Google docs link below:

Please note that for some email clients you may need to copy and paste the above link directly into your web browser to get it to work. Using EVO requires registration and a small amount of setup time. Thus if you are not already an EVO user, it would be best to not wait until Thursday morning to go through the installation process.
The teleconference number and specifics regarding Adobe Connect (Connect Pro) are as follows:
Teleconference: Phone Number: 1-877-624.8532 Pass code: 281913# (you MUST remember the # sign after the number)
During the call, please DO NOT put the conference call on hold - this results in excessive feedback for all other participants.
Please do MUTE your phone either with a mute button or by dialing *6. This will eliminate interfering background noise from your site.
Adobe Connect: Meeting Name: NSF-OCI Workshop on Cyberscience Grand Challenges and Implications for Cyberinfrastructure Invited By: Barry Schneider (bschneid@nsf.gov) When: 04/22 - 04/23, 2010 From: 8:00am -6:00pm Time Zone: (GMT-05:00) Eastern Time (US and Canada)

The teleconference is limited to 50 callers and the Adobe Connect is limited to 100. Thus if you do not have a question to pose to the panel or group at large, or have slides to present, please use the EVO connection.
Thank you for your interest.
