Announcing the Keynotes for the Focused Technical Workshop on Climate!


 We are pleased to announce three influential keynote speakers for the upcoming Focused Technical Workshop titled “Improving Data Mobility and Management for International Climate Science”, which will be hosted by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in Boulder, CO from July 14-16, 2014.

The first keynote will be delivered by NOAA’s Dr. Alexander “Sandy” MacDonald, Chief Science Advisor and Director of the Earth System Research Laboratory (ESRL), who is known for his influential work in weather forecasting and high performance computing at NOAA.

Also from NOAA’s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) and Princeton University, Dr. V. Balaji, Head of the Modeling Systems Group, will share the importance of bridging the worlds between science and software with workshop attendees.

And finally, Eli Dart, a highly-acclaimed network engineer from the Department of Energy’s ESnet who is credited with co-developing the Science DMZ model, will wrap up the workshop with the final keynote focused on how to create cohesive strategies for data mobility across computer systems, networks and science environments.

Inspired by each of the keynote speaker’s integral roles in climate science, computing and network architectures, the workshop intends to spark lively, interactive discussions between the research and education (R&E) and climate science communities to build long-term relationships and create useful tools and resources for improved climate data transport and management.

We look forward to seeing you in Boulder!
