Early Career Forum on 'Digital Management of Samples' at AGU (organized by EarthCube RCNs C4P & iSamplES)

To: Graduate Students, Post-Docs, Early Career Scientists

Do you deal with any type of samples as part of your research?
Could you use a stipend to help cover the cost of AGU registration or travel costs?  

Please come to the Early Career Forum while at AGU this December:

This 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: Moscone Center (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 by November 15, 2014.
