The San Diego Supercomputer Center will be one of 21 sites across the country hosting the Virtual Data Intensive Summer School on Mon June 30 – Wed July 2. It is intended for participants who are local to San Diego or one of the other 20 sites that will be linked using videoconferencing technology. The Data Intensive Summer School focuses on the skills needed to manage, process and gain insight from large amounts of data. It is targeted at researchers from the physical, biological, economic and social sciences that are beginning to drown in data. We will cover the nuts and bolts of data intensive computing, common tools and software, predictive analytics algorithms, data management and non-relational database models. Given the short duration of the summer school, the emphasis will be on providing a solid foundation that the attendees can use as a starting point for advanced topics of particular relevance to their work. Summer School details: http://www.vscse.org/summerschool/2014/index.html

CyberGIS — geographic information science and systems (GIS) based on advanced cyberinfrastructure — has emerged during the past several years as a vibrant interdisciplinary field impacting a broad swath of scientific domains and research areas. The NSF CyberGIS Project (www.cybergis.org) has contributed significantly to the development of this field. Due to the rapid development, most of the related curricula and education materials do not systematically 1) teach concepts and principles underlying cyberGIS; and 2) cover problem solving skills revolving around cyberGIS. To fill this gap, the CyberGIS Fellows Program established by the NSF CyberGIS Project aims to catalyze the development of cutting edge cyberGIS education materials and curricula.
The Fellows will hold visiting appointments within the CyberGIS Center for Advanced Digital and Spatial Studies and National Center for Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and have opportunities to develop collaborations with these two interdisciplinary programs. The CyberGIS Fellows are expected to play important roles in charting the future of cyberGIS education. This program is designed to be a competitive one that provides seed funding for developing education materials in core cyberGIS competency areas. Competitive fellowship proposals will involve individual faculty or educators from higher education institutions in the US with clear outcomes that advance the state of the art of cyberGIS education. For complete details about the CyberGIS Fellows program, including eligibility and how to apply, go to: http://cybergis.illinois.edu/news/140501_fellows.html
Applications are due by May 30, 2014, and awardees will be notified by June 14, 2014.
Application deadline: March 15, 2014. For more information visit, http://paris.utdallas.edu/REU

Do you have students who are interested in parallel, scientific, or statistical computing? Our REU Site at UMBC provides an introduction to all these and applies them to interdisciplinary research projects. We expect some background in programming, but the program has been successful for students with only a sophomore class standing. All details, including examples of past summers and a detailed description of the mechanics from a student perspective, at: http://www.umbc.edu/hpcreu/
Students will be matched with a faculty mentor at the beginning of the summer program, and each student will participate in a focused research project. Faculty mentors participating in the program have a broad range of interests in data-intensive computing, from “Big Data” analytics and architectures to biomedical informatics to computational ecology to reliable software engineering, and much more. The program also includes extensive training in tools and technology used in data-intensive computing research, as well as enrichment lectures, excursions, and social events.
Applications preferred by early March 20. For more information visit: http://www.cs.clemson.edu/reu/
