2010 Annual Tri-State Consortium Meeting Attracts Researchers to Discuss Cyberinfrastructure and Climate Change in the West

Over 160 researchers from Idaho, Nevada, and New Mexico gathered on the shores of Lake Tahoe in Incline Village NV, from April 6-8, 2010 for the second annual meeting of the NSF EPSCoR Tri-State Consortium.  The Consortium was formed in 2008 to advance the understanding of climate change and its impact on the Western U.S. by leveraging an NSF EPSCoR-funded project ("Track 1").  The Consortium expanded its efforts in 2009 with the receipt of a new collaborative award from NSF EPSCoR ("Track 2") that focuses on cyberinfrastructure development in the Tri-state region.  The meeting included presentations from keynote speakers and sessions on cyberinfrastructure, diversity, climate change science and education, collaborative and interdisciplinary science, and a half-day workshop on Hydrologic Information Systems.  A highlight of the meeting was a competitive, student poster session, where 33 students presented research posters to judges and meeting participants.
