Hello CZ-Earthcube
Thank you Anthony et al. for such a wonderful workshop last week! At the final meeting of the workshop there was some discussion of continuing to develop the ideas converged upon in the final synthesis and applying for one of NSF's Software Infrastructure for Sustained Innovation (SI2) grants. Several people still present expressed interest in working on this project and Kerstin Lehnert, of the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, agreed to spearhead the effort. Not all of the names and contact information were collected at this time. Additionally, we are aware that some people had to leave early and the webex listeners were already logged off. Therefore, you can consider this an open call for participation in this grant proposal.
Also at that final meeting, Anthony, our bold leader, relayed the message from the Enriqueta Barrera (NSF Program Officer for CZOs and others) that developing this kind of integrated software is just the kind of project that the Scientific Software Integration (SSI) grant, the middle-funding-level of the SI2 program, is intended for. The idea would be to draft a proposal, built on what we developed in the 3/4 groups at the workshop and the final synthesis, to submit as a group of both scientists (end-users) and developers. Further, Anthony has made the original proposal to NSF for this meeting to take place available on the google group page, so we may choose to borrow from that grant application for this one.
The next step we agreed upon last week was that we should have a teleconference this week. Since many from our group are attending another workshop until this Thursday, I propose this Friday, February 1 for our discussion. I have set up a doodle to schedule this conference (note the times are in PST on the form how I set it up). If you would like to be a part of this, but cannot talk on Friday at all, please let me know and I will instead schedule this for next week.


PS - Anthony, could you please send this out to all of the emails on your list? I am just sending it to the Google group because we still don't have the emails available, but I know many people may not have signed up to get emails from the google group.
