  • Based on NSF GEO Vision Report. Need to integrate existing data systems to explore the Earth as a system to solve 21st century scientific problems.
  • Agile – several advisory committee & a development evaluation team – allow us to quickly change course if things aren’t working or we’re not getting the results we want.
  • Series of checks and balances to ensure a community-driven approach.
  • What about agencies,intl, other science communities?
  • Need feedback from broad cross-section of geoscientists on their ideas on EarthCube governance, and test how they would react to different externalities (NSF funding, support from university/employer, etc.) through game theory.
  • Bringing together the other EarthCube awards in testbeds in Year 2. Foster community convergence on standards, reference architecture.
  • Transcript

    • 1. An Agile Approach to Development of Cyberinfrastructure Governance Lee Allison, Genevieve Pearthree, and Kim Patten EarthCube Test Enterprise Governance Project
    • 2. EARTHCUBE PURPOSE & CALL TO ACTION  Holistic approach to understand more deeply the planet and its interactions  Explore knowledge from all scientific and engineering disciplines CALL TO ACTION: ―Over the next decade, the geosciences community commits to developing a framework to understand and predict responses of the Earth as a system—from the space-atmosphere boundary to the core, including the influences of humans and ecosystems.‖ NSF GEO Vision report, 2009
    • 3. EARTHCUBE VISION  Transform Dynamic Earth Changing Climate the conduct of dataenabled geoscience-related research  Create effective communitydriven cyberinfrastructure  Allow global data discovery and knowledge management Water: Changing Perspectives Earth & Life GeosphereBiospheric Connection  Achieve interoperability and data integration across disciplines
    • 4. EARTHCUBE IS…  Building on and leverage existing science & cyberinfrastructure  Community-driven   All > 2,500 participants and growing geosciences domains represented  New round of awards made September 2013  Test Enterprise Governance (1)  Research Coordination Networks (3)  Building Blocks (9)  Conceptual Designs (2)
    • 5. EarthCube governance is a blank canvas We are looking to you to draw the future
    • 6. EARTHCUBE ENTERPRISE TEST GOVERNANCE An agile approach to design a system that catalyzes the field and works for you How do we bring your tools, standards, and skills into EarthCube?
    • 7. Governance timeline – Year 1 Stakeholders (Assembly) – governance ideas, testing Integrate stakeholder concepts crowdsource Synthesize and recommend to NSF Governance timeline – Year 2 Establish Test Governance Facilitate convergence on system design, data standards Evaluate results: basis for long term governance
    • 8. EARTHCUBE TEST GOVERNANCE: TARGET COMMUNITY Broad Geosciences Community (> 300,000 people) Assembly, including NSF Awards (150 - 200 people) Governance Project Team (30 people)
    • 9. Figure 1: EarthCube Test Enterprise Governance Organization Chart Phase 1 – Planning
    • 11. ―Executive Branch‖ An unbiased, objective process to get your input and propose a solution Test Governance Project Secretariat ―Legislative Body‖ Assembly & Assembly Advisory Council
    • 12. STAKEHOLDER ENGAGEMENT (YEAR 1): EARTHCUBE ASSEMBLY Industry & FOSS: Instrumentation, Software, and Technology Developers EarthCube Portfolio Research Science Communities End-User Communities & Workshop Participants Data Facilities & Users IT/CS/ Information Scientists Professional Societies Assembly Advisory Council (10-12 members)
    • 14. DEMONSTRATION GOVERNANCE (YEAR 2) To be decided by you in Year 1
    • 15. Coming soon – new website
    • 16. A CALL FOR YOUR INVOLVEMENT • Upcoming community workshops: Jan – March 2014 • Crowdsourcing: • Virtual table-top gaming exercises • Feedback on governance models • Facebook • Twitter • • Look for us at AGU, AMS, Ocean Sciences
