The proliferation of data and cyberinfrastructure has created a new ecosystem for water related sciences in which to research, learn, and educate. This flood of information and systems, however, can be difficult to navigate and can add challenges to scientific and teaching workflows. To fully realize the advantages of information technology in water related research and education, we must develop, maintain, support, and employ data tools and resources that are useful, enable transformative science, and have low barriers to use. We invite researchers, educators, and practitioners in the water sciences, data and computational sciences, as well as information technology sciences interested in advancing hydroinformatics to participate in this interdisciplinary conference.
The conference will follow the completion of the third Summer Institute at the National Water Center, which is a seven week intensive research fellowship for graduate students to learn about the new National Water Model and help enhance water-related products and decision-support services across the country. A Summer Institute Capstone Meeting will be held on Monday, July 24th prior to the official start of the conference. Conference participants are invited to the Summer Institute Capstone Meeting to learn more about the program through the lens of projects presented by the student participants at no additional cost. A conference session will also highlight and summarize the research contribution made Summer Institute participants.
