NSF Workshop on Supporting Scientific Discovery through Norms and Practices for Software and Data Citation and Attribution

Figshare Admin Nsf
Software is as essential as data in the modern practice of science. When scientists share with each other not only research results, but also data and software, it vastly amplifies the reach, relevance, and transparency of science. Yet there are substantial social, systemic, and technological barriers that prevent scientists from sharing data and software. Scientific researchers --- particularly academics --- are embedded in a reputation economy in which tenure, promotion, and acclaim are achieved through...

Curating for Quality: Ensuring Data Quality to Enable New Science

Figshare Admin Nsf
Science is built on observations. If our observational data is bad, we are building a house on sand. Some of our data banks have quality measurements and maintenance, such as the National Climate Data Center and the National Center for Biotechnology Information; but others do not, and we do not even know which scientific data services have quality metrics or what they are.Data quality is an assertion about data properties, typically assumed within a context...

NSF Workshop on "Beyond Cognitive Radios"

Figshare Admin Nsf
The concept of "Software Radio" was introduced in the early 1990s. Since then there has been significant research and development activity on software-defined radios (SDR). An important feature of the SDR vision is its ability to integrate legacy systems with newer and more advanced radio and access technologies. The work on SDR led to the realization that opportunistic spectrum utilization can lead to a dramatic improvement in the capacity of practical wireless networks, and the...

Shared Principles Between the Computing and Biological Sciences

The purpose of this workshop was to bring together leading biologists and computational scientists interested in exploring shared principles between computing and biology. These two communities have a shared history of mutual influence where the transfer of concepts and tools has resulted in significant advances in both fields. Typically, the computing community develops techniques useful to the biological sciences such as mathematical models or search algorithms, while the biological sciences community develops hypotheses, which inspire...

Final Report from the NSF Workshop on Future Research Infrastructure for the Wireless Edge

Figshare Admin Nsf
Mobile and wireless-based access has transformed the nature of computing, communication and access in the last decade. The number of mobile wireless network-connected devices (i.e. smartphones, wearable computers, Internet of things, etc.) is anticipated to grow exponentially. As these devices become pervasive and the expectations from users continue to grow, researchers and practitioners are experimenting with new mechanisms to deliver at-scale services connecting the distributed cloud directly to end users.
