Cyberinfrastructure and Water Resources in the Lower Mekong Region

The Lower Mekong Initiative Workshop in the Network-enabled Collaboration series on “Cyberinfrastructure and Water Resources in the Lower Mekong Region” will be held August 18-22, 2014 in Hanoi, Vietnam.  It will bring together scientists in water-related research disciplines and their network support staff from the Lower Mekong region (including Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam) and scientists and network experts from United States to provide an opportunity:

This five-day workshop will have a science stream and a network stream.

The science stream will include presentations and interactive sessions on water-related research; tutorials that highlight tools for data-intensive research collaborations; case studies; and brainstorming on opportunities for network-enabled collaboration among scientists in the Lower Mekong Region and with US scientists.

The network stream will focus on training and awareness-raising of the network staff from the institutions of the scientists in the science stream.  The training will focus on improving campus network facilities to better serve the needs of the science community.

This workshop is by invitation only and funded by the US National Science Foundation and the US Department of State; organized by Indiana University and the University of Oregon; and supported by the US National Center for Atmospheric Research and the University of California at San Diego PRAGMA project and the Vietnam Research and Education Network (VinaREN), with additional support from the Vietnam - National Agency for Science and Technological Information (NASATI) and the TEIN*CC organization.
