Session Abstract

Research in the earth and biological sciences depends on the availability of representative, often irreplaceable physical samples that have been collected at substantial cost and effort. The NSF-funded EarthCube iSamplES (Internet of Samples in the Earth Sciences) research coordination network aims to connect physical samples and sample collections with digital data infrastructures to revolutionize their utility in the support of science. The goal of this workshop is to cross-pollinate the expertise of a broad audience comprising of biologists, earth scientists, and data curators who work with physical samples and information scientists. Prior workhops, hosted in conjunction with JCDL 2016 and ASIS&T Annual Meeting 2016 attracted participation from researchers and practitioners in the USA, Australia, Germany, and the Netherlands. In conducting this workshop at the iConference we aim to strengthen connections between sample-related communities in Asia-Pacific and the USA.

Organizers: Unmil P. Karadkar, The University of Texas at Austin; Kerstin Lehnert, Columbia University; Chris Lenhardt, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; Sarah Ramdeen, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
