The iSamplES RCN seeks to advance the use of innovative cyberinfrastructure to connect physical samples and sample collections across the Earth Sciences with digital data infrastructures to revolutionize their utility for science. The ultimate goal of this RCN is to dramatically improve the discovery, access, sharing, analysis, and curation of physical samples and the data generated by their study for the benefit of science and society.
The iSamplES and C4P RCNs will be holding a joint event at AGU for early career scientists who deal with samples in their research.
The iSamplES and C4P Early Career Forum is a lunchtime forum to meet and discuss the plans and challenges of creating and storing digital sample information, whether earth materials samples are solid, liquid, or gas, or even experimental run products. We will chat about developing best practices for sampling and preserving sample information to make our growing collections easily manageable and more useful.
