The US CLIVAR program annually sponsors open community workshops, conferences, and science meetings to coordinate, plan, and implement new or focused activities for the benefit of the scientific community and relevant to the goals of US CLIVAR. Workshops can serve as an initiation point in the planning process for future initiatives within the community. Funding is limited and not all submitted workshop requests may be supported.

From NSF: Dear Colleagues: In the past two decades, advanced cyberinfrastructure has become a critical element of science and engineering research – a result of the increasing scope and accuracy of simulations of natural and engineered systems as well as the growing volume of data generated by instruments, simulations, experiments and observations. The National Science Foundation (NSF) embraces an expansive, ecosystem view of research cyberinfrastructure – spanning advanced computing resources, data and software infrastructure, workflow systems and approaches, networking, cybersecurity and associated workforce development – elements whose design and deployment are motivated by evolving research priorities as well as the dynamics of the scientific process. The critical role of this broad spectrum of shared cyberinfrastructure resources, capabilities and services – and their integration – in enabling science and engineering research has been reaffirmed by the National Strategic Computing Initiative, which was announced in July 2015, and in the National Academies’ 2016 report on Future Directions for NSF Advanced Computing Infrastructure to Support U.S. Science and Engineering in 2017-2020. While these efforts are computing-centric, they expose the inherent inseparability of computing from the larger cyber ecosystem. With this DCL, NSF seeks input that provides a holistic view of the future needs for advanced cyberinfrastructure for advancing the Nation’s research enterprise.
TOS Student Membership Is Now Free!
Nurturing the next generation of scientists is crucially important to the future of oceanography. To support this need, the leadership of The Oceanography Society (TOS) has made membership in The Oceanography Society available free for students enrolled at the graduate or undergraduate level in an oceanography or ocean-related program.
