The *iSamplES Research Coordination Network* seeks to advance the use of
innovative cyberinfrastructure to connect physical samples and sample
collections across the Earth Sciences with digital data infrastructures to
revolutionize their utility for science. The ultimate goal of this RCN is
to dramatically improve the discovery, access, sharing, analysis, and
curation of physical samples and the data generated by their study for the
benefit of science and society.

The iSamplES and C4P (Collaboration and Cyberinfrastructure for
Paleogeoscience) RCNs will be holding a joint event at AGU for early career
scientists who deal with samples in their research. The* iSamplES and C4P
Early Career Forum* is a lunchtime forum to meet and discuss the plans and
challenges of creating and storing digital sample information, whether
earth materials samples are solid, liquid, or gas, or even experimental run
products. We will chat about developing best practices for sampling and
preserving sample information to make our growing collections easily
manageable and more useful.

*When: *Thursday December 18, 2014 11:45am-1:15pm
*Where:* At AGU, San Francisco, CA

Lunch will be provided, plus a limited number of stipends (cost of Early
registration) will be available to those who register for and participate
in the forum.

This forum is for graduate students and early career scientists (those
within 5 years of completion of a PhD). The project is sponsored by the NSF
Earthcube Research Coordination Networks iSamplES and C4P (Collaboration
and Cyberinfrastructure for Paleogeoscience) and the results will help
guide planning and development of an “internet of physical samples” for the
earth sciences.

If you are interested, please fill out a simple application form
November 15, 2014.

A major goal of the webinars is to facilitate communication and interaction
between domain scientists and cyber/computer scientists. See the full
webinar schedule here.
