DIBBs17 Workshop

ABOUT DIBBs17

The 1st NSF Data Infrastructure Building Blocks PI Workshop (DIBBs17) will be held January 11-12, 2017, at the Westin Arlington Gateway Hotel in Arlington, VA . This is an invitation-only event, limited to 2 attendees (PI or Co-PI) per DIBBs project that is active at the time of invitation. The goals of the workshop are to exchange results and lessons learned from the ~40 currently active projects that have been funded through DIBBs solicitations (NSF 12-557, NSF 14-530, NSF 15-534, and NSF 16-530), and consider the implications of project results across the existing research portfolio for advances in the vision and goals for data cyberinfrastructure. Prior to the workshop, each project will provide a poster and white paper. The Program Committee will use these inputs to form the panels, small group discussions, and organize a Poster Reception. All active DIBBs projects are encouraged to participate in DIBBs17.
