Prof. Ilya Zaslavsky, director of the Spatial Information Systems Laboratory - University of California, San Diego -, visits the Institute of Applied Mathematics and Information Technologies of the Italian National Council of Research, section of Genova to discuss common research interests. Prof. Ilya Zaslavsky gives a speech on "An EarthCube Roadmap for Cross-Domain Interoperability in the Geosciences", scheduled on 6th of September at 11 a.m.. It is possible to attend the seminar in streaming using the link: 




A new research initiative of the U.S. National Science Foundation, called EarthCube, is developing a roadmap to create community-guided cyberinfrastructure for the entire geosciences. One of the initial EarthCube projects, focused on cross-domain interoperability in the geosciences, will be presented. Key questions addressed in this presentation are: (1) How to define and assess readiness of domain systems for cross-domain re-use of data and models? (2) How to determine EarthCube development priorities given a multitude of use cases that involve cross-domain data flows? (3) What is the reference architecture and appropriate technologies enabling cross-domain integration? We will discuss a cross-domain readiness model, present an initial assessment of "EarthCube-readiness" and demonstrate a cross-domain connectivity map for the geosciences.


About the speaker:

Ilya Zaslavsky is director of Spatial Information Systems Laboratory at the San Diego Supercomputer Center, University of California San Diego. His research focuses on distributed information management systems—in particular, on spatial and temporal data integration, geographic information systems, and spatial data analysis. Ilya has been leading design and technical development in several cyberinfrastructure projects, including the national-scale Hydrologic Information System, which develops standards, databases, and services for integration of hydrologic observations. He has also developed spatial data management infrastructure as part of several large projects, in domains ranging from neuroscience (digital brain atlases) to geology, disaster response (NIEHS Katrina portal), regional planning, and conservation. Ilya received his Ph.D. from the University of Washington (1995) for research on statistical analysis and reasoning models for geographic data. Previously, he received a Ph.D. equivalent from the Russian Academy of Sciences, Institute of Geography, for his work on urban simulation modeling and metropolitan evolution (1990).
