Data preservation in the age of Big Data

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.

BigSkyEarth Conference – Education in Big Data Era

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.  (more…)

The fourth call for Short Term Scientific Missions

The fourth call for Short Term Scientific Missions

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. (more…)
