The 2018 NSF Software Infrastructure for Sustained Innovation (SI2) Principal Investigator (PI) workshop will be held on Monday April 30 and Tuesday May 1, 2018 at the The Westin Washington, D.C. City Center. This year, the workshop will be co-located with the 18th IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Cluster, Cloud, and Grid Computing (CCGrid’18).
Poster Submission: 23 April 2018
Lightning Talk Submission: 23 April 2018
Please register to attend the 2018 SI2 PI workshop by March 29, 2018:
PIs are expected to present a poster on their project. We will again use Figshare to host and share the posters digitally. Please follow these steps to upload your poster by 23 April 2018:
1. Create or log into your Figshare account.
2. Follow steps from "My Data" -> "Create a new item" to bring up the content upload form.
3. Fill in the appropriate metadata (authors, title).
4. Set the "Item type" to poster, and at the keyword stage put "NSF-SI2-2018" as one of the chosen keywords. (Hit return/enter to separate keywords.)
5. You may also want to add your NSF award # to the "Funding" section.
6. For license, we recommend selecting "CC BY" (which should be the default).
7. Please also add a brief abstract describing your project.
8. Hit publish!
Please note that you are expected to print out and bring a physical copy on your own; we will not be printing any posters. Collaborative projects (including across multiple institutions) should only bring one poster.
Each project will also give a brief, one-minute lightning talk to introduce their poster. To avoid any technical issues and minimize delays, lightning talk slide(s) will need to be submitted by 23 April 2018. More instructions will follow on this topic, as well as a recommended template.
