Escience:Anthropology Cyber-Infrastructure Workshop
Consider anthropology's needs in cyberinfrastructure and to address the following questions:
- what do we need in order to make it possible for anthropologists to contribute to cyber-based, systematic data collection, data analysis, and data sharing?
- what is available now and what would it cost to support the use of this technology to advance the mission of anthropology?
- making sure that good technology is available for anthropologists in the field (satellite-linked downloads and uploads, for example)
- comparative studies at home (databases of languages and cultures that recognize each other and build on one another)
- Pervasive computing in the field, the lab and the classroom
- Asychronous and low speed (glacial) E-science
- Resource sharing/pooling
- Sharing knowledge about methods and techniques
- Sharing tools
- Flexible parallel multiple-ontology meta-data
- sorry this is so boring at this stage
Criteria and mission
The proposal should set out the proposed purpose of the Workshop, and the outcomes and outputs that the proposers hope to achieve, including capacity building and any longer-term collaboration that might be foreseen. It should provide a list of the proposed Workshop participants with short curricula vitae. It should indicate the proposed organization, including venue, timing (up to 31 March 2007), programme and related matters, and a clear indication of the costs which are sought, including travel, accommodation, catering, and administrative arrangements.
Establish collaboration on global or large-scale problems that require efforts of international research and education projects in the area of cyber-infrastructure, including the development of the next generation of cybertools applied to data collections in the social and behavioral sciences and underpinning research issues.
