The WG2&4 Meeting will take place in Masala, Finland (close to Helsinki) on 10-11 October. 2016, at the Finnish Geospatial Research Institute and co-organized by the University of Helsinki, Department of Physics. The main topic of the meeting is preparation of the ITN proposals and how to boost collaborative work within BigSkyEarth network.Read More
PERICLES does not want to invent another preservation system. It wants to understand how to realise a world where preservation policies – human-defined, human-understandable policies – can shape and change a model of preservation that must, consequently, be implemented in a dynamic architecture with no reliance on any particular (implementation of any particular) computational component.Read More
Big data trends in modern astronomy and Earth observation make those fields increasingly dependent on computer science. Actually, so dependent that often they have to be considered as new interdisciplinary fields of research. This collides with the traditional educational programs where students in astronomy and Earth observation do not receive training adequate for the era of big data.Read More

This is a call for Short Term Scientific Missions (STSM) within BigSkyEarth COST Action. Short Term Scientific Missions (STSM) are exchange visits aimed at supporting individual mobility, strengthening existing networks and fostering collaboration between researchers. A STSM should specifically contribute to the scientific objectives of the COST Action, whilst at the same time allowing those partaking in the missions to learn new techniques, gain access to specific data, instruments and/or methods not available in their own institutions/organisations.
STSM applicants must be engaged in an official research programme as a PhD Student or postdoctoral fellow or can be employed by, or affiliated to, an Institution or legal entity which has within its remit a clear association with performing research. The institutions/organisations where applicants pursue their main strand of research are considered as Home institutions. The Host institution is the institution/organisation that will host the successful applicant.
