There's only two days left, but if you know of an 'early career scientist' who works in the earth sciences, this might be of interest.

> The National Science Foundation (NSF) is hosting a charrette from June 12-14, 2012 in Washington, DC to support the EarthCube initiative.  NSF is seeking the participation of domain scientists, particularly early career scientists, and is offering travel support to the charrette for early career faculty/researchers (defined as graduate students, post docs, or assistant researchers or professors).  The deadline for registration is May 18.  Applications are available on the EarthCube Ning site at http://earthcube.ning.com/page/early-career-support-for-june-charrette.
> About EarthCube:
> The goal of EarthCube is to transform the conduct of research by supporting the development of community-guided cyberinfrastructure to integrate data and information for knowledge management across the Geosciences.  An informational website is available at: http://earthcube.ning.com/
> About the June Charrette:
> The Charrette will be held June 12-14 in the Washington, DC metro region.  The goal of the meeting is create robust drafts of community-derived roadmaps for the present concept award portfolio (available at http://earthcube.ning.com/page/projects-4-2012).  After the meeting, all roadmap documents will be posted for public comment to allow the broadest possible input from the community and all interested parties.  The meeting is open to all participants; there will be opportunities to participate either locally or virtually.  All additional information will be posted as it becomes available at http://earthcube.ning.com/page/june-12-charrette
> I'm circulating this in my role as PI on the EarthCube Governance Roadmap Working Group and as a member of the NSF Geosciences Advisory Committee.  The EarthCube initiative is receiving the highest attention at NSF and in the White House where it was recently showcased in the Big Data initiative.  The June charrette is shaping up to be a pivotal event in determining a 10-year vision for cyberinfrastructure in the geosciences and beyond.
